The place to go for national touring hip-hop artists, jam-tronica bands and live EDM shows.
Duke's Bohemian Grove Bar / 253 Allen St. / Buffalo / 240-9359
Books all kinds of music, but most weekend evenings feature late-night DJ sets specializing in everything from hip-hop to house. Super cool Allentown vibe.
Noir Ultra Lounge / 88 W. Chippewa St. / Buffalo / 853-2762
A chic, intimate lounge vibe, but Noir turns into a full-on dance party later in the evening. Mostly modern hip-hop and Top 40, some EDM.
Lux / 75 W. Chippewa / Buffalo / 218-3589
DJs spin ‘90s hip-hop, contemporary R&B and some EDM. Every Saturday is KISS 98.5 FM Ladies Night.

Lots of EDM, old-school hip-hop and an intimate – pronounced “small and sweaty” – dance floor.
