The Lobby Bar located in the newly renovated Statler Hotel held their first Happy Hour open to the public last night, so a few fellow Dandies and myself stopped by to see what all the fuss was about. I will be the first to admit that I was skeptical about the whole Statler Building thing. Part of me thought it was just another abandoned, broken down building in Buffalo, either fix it tear it down, the other half of me was curious because of the illustrious history of the hotel, and what it would mean for the city if it was refurbished. After stepping foot inside, I am a believer. This building is gorgeous. It really is like you’re stepping into the Overlook Hotel in the Shinning, and can almost see the ghosts of the past walking around in their tuxedo’s, drinking their brandy while the wives walk around in expensive furs and dazzling jewelery. Anyways, you get where I’m going with this. The building is an amazing tribute to Buffalo’s past and I’m glad they have saved it. Now onto the Lobby Bar.
