ulrich's tavern

A Buffalo landmark re-opened yesterday with a street party and a lot of beer. It may not have been the beer Ulrich's Tavern sold when it opened 146 years ago, but much of it was local, fitting for a neighborhood that was once known for its breweries.


The oldest continuously operating bar in Buffalo has to shut down for failing to keep up with its payment plan after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year.

Ulrich's reopens for business

Sep 5, 2012

The suds are flowing again at the oldest continuously operated bar in Buffalo.  

Ulrich's Tavern reopened Tuesday after being closed for about a month when the state tax department shut it down for not paying  back taxes.  

Owner Jim Daley filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in August. He says he spent the past month revamping his business. Daley welcomed customers back to his place Tuesday, and plans to start serving food again starting Wednesday.  

Ulrich's is considered the oldest continuously running bar in Buffalo, opening in 1868.
