There is a new sign that you will see on Transit Road next week. Route 78 Bar and Grill is set to shut down and begin a new chapter on the 14th of January, which is this Friday.

The new restaurant and bar that will be moving in is the second location for Sidelines Bar and Grill. The first location has been downtown for years.

Route 78 posted on Facebook and suggested that the staff will remain as the transition to Sidelines happens. Over the years that location at 6036 Transit Rd, Depew, NY 14043 has changed hands quite a few times. In the past 15 years alone, it has been a Chinese restaurant, The AUD, The Bradford Ale House, and Route 78.

To all our valued guests and friends, our last day as Route 78 Street Bar will be January 14th.
As we welcome Sidelines to the area, we hope you welcome them as you did us. You will still see the same friendly faces. As a local neighborhood establishment, it’s a gathering place to share accounts of our days, to celebrate big events in our lives or just share a table with our friends", according to Route 78's Facebook post.
EXTRA: Another new bar is coming to Transit Road in the future. Above the brand new BFLO Store in the Transitown Plaza will be a rooftop bar and brewery (right by Home Depot and TJ Maxx). Apparently, they are hoping to open in 2024.  Inside the new BFLO store is a waffle & coffee house and a wine bar.
