Buffalo Bar ticks all the boxes, with an authentic showcase of American fare, booze and foot-stomping tunes in the heart of Brisbane's CBD. Our inner-city stomping ground!

Buffalo Bar Regular

The Verdict
Food Menu

Bringing the best of the US of A down under in a big way, Buffalo Bar is one of Brisbane’s most authentic modern American bars. With seating a-plenty both indoor and outdoor (gotta love a beer garden) plus all of the good vibes, it’s the perfect place to get the crew together and take advantage of everything this CBD gem has to offer. 

Buffalo Bar also has your squad covered on Friday and Saturday nights, with Ricky’s Playground kicking off at 8pm: think live music and their signature Gin Rickey cocktails—it’s a great setup for a killer night out.

Hungry? Buffalo Bar will transport your tastebuds Stateside (without that exxy flight) and immerse you in hearty US-style dishes the likes of spicy wings, succulent ribs, grill and smoker classics and a boutique whiskey list that changes often. Those after something a little sweeter can’t go past the deep fried maple ice cream with smoked butter popcorn and drunken rum and raisin sauce. Worth it? One word: yep.

If you’re up for a rejuvenating midday work break, our hot tip is Buffalo Bar’s Feed The Beast lunch deal: between 11:30am and 3pm every day (yep, every. Single. Day), you can enjoy a juicy, cheesy, American-style burger and fries for only $15. (Excuse us while we accidentally-on-purpose forget our packed lunch from home).

With a bursting social calendar, Buffalo Bar is the place to be every night of the week. Turn that Monday frown upside down by getting involved with trivia from 6:30pm, Tuesday is all about that protein with $15 rump steak all day before reaching the hump day treat of all treats: Buffalo Bar boasts an extraordinary FIVE different American-style parmies to choose from for just $15. Get in ma belly!

Perched conveniently on the corner of Edward and Mary Streets in a beautiful heritage listed Edwardian building, Buffalo Bar is a hotspot for daily lunches, knock-off drinks or the weekend party. Yee hah!
