It’s no secret that Buffalonians love to drink, and in our defense, we have plenty of reason to. We will defend our favorite sports team and wing spots until the day we die, but we don’t hear enough about our favorite bars – dive, cocktail, sports, and otherwise. Western New York has what feels like a bajillion bars to choose from, some more popular than others. We asked our readers what they think the most “underrated” bars are in the area, and man did we get some responses in a variety of categories. This list offers classy vibes, dark spaces, beer heavy drink lists, old school atmospheres, cool kid hangouts, and literally everything in between.

Without further ado, here’s *our readers’* guide to Buffalo’s most underrated bars (in no particular order), for the next time you’re in need of… you know… a drink.
