How Old Is Buffalo, NY’s OLDEST Bar?
Do you know Ulrich's Tavern? The Buffalo bar is located at 674 Ellicott Street in Buffalo, NY, and is reportedly Buffalo's OLDEST bar, according to Buffalo.net. It is one of the oldest coninuously operating taverns in WNY as well. The tavern was founded in 1868 as a grocery saloon and it has been serving food and drinks since.
The grocery side of the business was dropped in the 1880s at which time the upstairs portion of the building became a hotel. In the late 1800s and early 1900s a barber shop was also located in the building. It was in 1906 that a man named Michael Ulrich took over the saloon and in 1910 he bought and renamed it.
