Traditionally, a “Lodge” is a welcome escape from the elements, a structure whose presence represents a safe retreat.  Likewise, The Lodge in downtown Buffalo is an urban oasis, a welcome break from city life.  We are a modern and chic take on the rustic “lodge” concept.  “Casual and fun” seamlessly blend with “sexy and sophisticated,” the choice is yours and our space is for exploring.


Lodge Co-Owner, Adam March, and his business partner, Dan Valentine, purchased the building in which The Lodge is housed in 2011 with the hopes of enhancing the area. In the summer of 2012, Buffalo event producer and marketing entrepeneur, Peter Altholz, pitched the duo on the concept of an outdoorsy themed dining and nightlife destination and The Lodge was born! Area mixologist and MBA, Neil Kapoor, joined the team soon thereafter, and in September 2013 the doors were officially opened to the public.
