Somewhere along the way, Allentown became Buffalo’s go-to for late night eats and bar hopping. After all, if you’ve never made a midnight trek to The Old Pink or Mulligan’s Brick Bar to inevitably run into someone from high school, are you really from Buffalo? 

Regardless, every true Buffalonian knows there’s way more to Allen than its strip of “hometown” bars. All of the renowned restaurants, community art galleries, intimate music venues, and local shops that call Allentown home contribute to the neighborhood’s creative energy, making it a really exciting place to be. And just like its Hertel and Elmwood counterparts, Allen Street is, of course, home to a colorful public art scene that’s hard to beat.

Here’s a complete guide to all of the murals that bring the streets of Allentown to life:
