Haven't been there in over a year though (with a little one on the way, we haven't been much in the bar scene lately), so I'm not sure how many Sabres fans still hang out there. But at any rate, it's a good hockey bar where I guarantee you will be able to watch the game.

Other places I have heard of as good Sabres/Buffalo bars:

Kelly’s at 12 Ave A
Kinsales on 93rd and 3rd
I really liked the the crowd at Blackfinn's last year. Just too bad that place wanted to be a crummy dance club than accept the Sabres fans' money.

I've never been crazy about the Blue Moon crowd. In the regular season, My friends and I'd been the only one there to watch hockey a few times. But I've never gone for the playoffs. Hopefully want to go to a place where everyone is excited for the game too.

I still remember walking down the street in Waikiki on my honeymoon wearing a Sabres shirt when some guy yelled at me from across the street to get my attention and introduce himself as a fellow fan. Awesome.

Later on that honeymoon in San Francisco I had a Sabres hat on and someone at the bar my wife and I were at saw it and bought us shots because he was a fan as well.

Amazing fanbase.

Kelly's is good. Unlike Blue Moon it's actually a Buffalo sports bar. Cheap drinks and bartenders who are quick to get your drinks even when there's a crowd. Nice atmosphere. I've only been there for regular season games but I've heard that you should plan to get there a bit early for playoff games because it fills up.

are there any good sabres bars in 'cuse? (where everyone is into the game!) I went to college here and recently moved back and 9 out of 10 places you go you need to ask for the game to be put on. Usually I'm the only one watching too haha. Definitely a contrast to rochester.

ps.....back in '07 my wife and I went to blue moon in nyc for game 1 against the isles. Probably the most fun I have ever had at a bar watching the sabres. Cheap labatt's, good margaritas, solid wings and amazing free chips and salsa all game. The place was packed with sabres fans but we got a perfect spot at the bar. People were chanting "Let's Go Buffalo!" throughout the game.

I've heard good things about Kelly's as well. I've been to Kinsale (my sister used to live right there) but never for a sabres game

I've been to McFadden's on 42nd and 2nd once as well and that was a pretty good time. It might be more of a Bills bar but I know they've had Sabres gatherings there in the past as well.

Although McFadden's is the main Bills bar in NYC, I've heard in the past that they are not very accommodating to Sabres fans. Especially when it comes to weeknight games.

Ah ok, I was there in September and caught a Bills game and it was a good time. I had also heard that when the Sabres were in town just after (maybe just before, can't remember) the sale was official, they had a meet and greet thing there.

Denver has a pizzeria that shows all the Sabres games, and has beer:

The bar that hosts the Bills games also has them:

You'd think given the amount of Sabres fans in NYC this city could support more than 1 and a third Sabres bars. The amount of money I poured into Blackfinn's last year (a few regular season and playoffs) was criminal.
