Allen Burger Venture

IMG_0582Allen Burger Venture (ABV) is Mike Shatzle’s (Blue Monk, Coles, Moor Pat) latest endeavor. Located in the heart of the Allentown district of Buffalo, ABV is a first-rate example of modern-style restaurant and bar. It’s harmonious, yet anomalous among the trendy Allentown scene. The atmosphere and feel is nothing short of pure fun. The decor is unique enough to be engaging, without being too distracting or obnoxious. And the music is up beat and vibrant.

The staff lead by GM Johnny Chow are equally as enthusiastic and fun as the place itself. The menu is full of one-of-a-kind burger specialties that literally make it near impossible to choose. The beer-centric bar is loaded with a long list of local and non-local options of varying styles.IMG_0704






IMG_0633In addition to the perfect atmosphere, awesome burgers and excellent choice of beer at ABV, they have an exceptional, steadily growing library of whiskies to choose from. In full disclosure, BWG is proud to say that we’ve worked side by side with Johnny Chow and Mike Shatzle in curating the unique whiskey selection. Johnny and Mike’s vision for ABV is to create not only an epic restaurant and great beer spot, but a world class whiskey bar as well. And we are proud to be a part of helping ABV become just that.IMG_0661


IMG_0712BWG will be holding regular whiskey tasting events at ABV and The Moor Pat in the near future. Stay tuned to our events page and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for up to date news on our events. In the mean time, BWG highly recommends ABV for the food, the beer and most certainly the whiskey. Cheers!

  2. I have visited a.b.v. twice in less than one week. That ought to tell you that even this suburban born Buffalo-urbanophile and restaurant critic loves the food here. My wife asked “but will it last?”. Yes. The business model is tight and well thought out. The product is excellent and the menu changes with what is seasonal.
    We plan lunch or dinner with friends soon… I might even grow a beard and dig out that Pendelton plaid shirt!
