A Sports Bar and So Much More


By Steven Zapel


            For most college students, an active social life is almost as important as success in the classroom. If you're one of the students who feel this way, Slick Willies is a bar designed just for you. Slick Willies (often referred to as Slicks) is a hotspot for people with active social and night lives, and has become a mainstay in the social scene for Buffalo’s vast number of college students. Located on Niagara Falls Boulevard, just minutes north of the 290, Slicks provides a variety of entertainment options to accommodate everyone.

            Slicks has an excess of HD televisions and carries NFL’s Sunday Ticket, so every game on Sunday can be seen there. This is great for those students attending college out of state and do not have the opportunity in their own houses to watch their home team play. Also, every Sabres game can be watched at Slicks, perfect for all you hockey fans. Slicks has food and drink specials every Sunday and during every Sabres game, to make your game experience even better.

            Slicks has two large rooms, each with their own bar, which makes it much faster and easier getting drinks. Slicks provides six dartboards and six full-size pool tables, as well as Golden Tee and 4 Mega Touch machines. Whether you're a casual player or an experienced league player, along with quality equipment Slicks provides an atmosphere every player will enjoy.

            If music is your thing, Slicks has a live DJ along with incredible drink specials every Thursday night, for ladies night. During the rest of the week the establishment provides an internet jukebox that allows you to listen to any music you like. The popular spot also features a fireman's pole, so all of you ladies can show off your dancing skills, if you'd like.

            Happy hour at Slicks runs from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with an extended happy hour on Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. There are daily specials all week long on both food and drinks. With over 80 items on their menu, it's is a great place to grab lunch, dinner or to satisfy your late-night munchies. Slicks carries almost every type of alcohol and has a large variety of beer in the bottle and on tap.

            Slick Willies is one of Buffalo’s premier sports and party bars, and can suit the different needs of all bar-goers. It's is open to 4 a.m. every night for your entertainment. And remember their motto: “What happens at Slick Willie’s never happened…deny everything.” So go and enjoy a night out at Slick Willies and let your inner party animal free, because everyone at Slicks does. Until my next bar review, bottoms up and remember to drink safe and never drink and drive.
