I have always said that the best places to have a drink are the "mom and pop" bars. I am talking about the neighborhood gin mills which seem to be disappearing from the Western New York landscape. Back in the early 1900's, Buffalo was home to probably thousands of these small taverns where the drinks were cheap and the people were friendly.

I found this video of the R & L Lounge which could very well be one of the last of the old fashioned "shot & beer" joints. Let Ronnie pour you an old school drink at this classic Polish tavern. One of the most unique places that remain of "Old Buffalo." Located in the Historic Polonia District, only 2 miles from Niagara Square in Downtown Buffalo. 23 Mills Street, Buffalo, New York.
