In Buffalo, there used to be a spot called Mohawk Place that was beloved before it closed down. To locals, the Mohawk was hard to replace, that is until the the Waiting Room filled the 'best dive bar/club' void in Buffalo's live music scene. Located on Delaware Avenue, the Waiting Room hosts a vibrant mix of upcoming as well as established indie bands with names like Anchor Me Down, Cedar Kites and The Polar Bear Club. The venue is rather new (it was created in April 2013), however in its short tenure, it has garnered rave reviews and headlining acts, both of which make it a force to remain in Buffalo's nightlife.
The Town Ballroom, formerly known as the Town Casino, hosted many top performers within its walls during its heyday. Singers like Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis and Frank Sinatra graced its stage.

The Underground Nightclub is more bar than club, yet most people who come here don't seem to mind because there is ample space for both. The dance floor runs along the bar which makes it a bit small, but it works because it gets the usually motionless people at the bar to join in. Drinks are standard with specials throughout the week and the clientele is primarily LGBT, but everyone is always welcome.
