About Buffalo’s Mohawk Place

For almost thirty years, Mohawk Place has brought genuine, high-quality live musical acts to Erie County. In fact, Mohawk Place is a leading Western New York live music venue that attracts a diverse audience by presenting local and national music groups.

Occupying the ground floor of a building from 1896, “The ‘Hawk” originally housed and fed vaudeville performers for several decades before becoming a bar and live music venue that featured legends like Jimi Hendrix, James Brown and Rick James, among other future stars. After closing briefly in January 2013, Buffalo’s Mohawk Place returned without losing any of its mystique or style.

The new owners have fixed up maintenance issues, upgraded the sound, bathroom and plumbing, while remaining a simple neighborhood “dive bar” feel. These days, the bar has become a “rite of passage” for local and regional performers. The bar still brings both veteran and upcoming national acts to Downtown Buffalo.

With dedicated ownership, a knowledgeable booking agent, and some of the best staff in the business, plus a loyal and devoted following, Buffalo’s Mohawk Place is back as Western New York’s premiere medium-sized music venue for decades to come. Contact us today to book a show.
