The Hickey Tavern

The "Five-Star Dive Bar"

Tucked away on Main Street in the Western New York college town of Allegany, NY, The Hickey Tavern is the go-to dive bar for music lovers, St. Bonaventure University students and alumni, and locals alike. Owner and bartender, Lou Ruby, is both a staple, and a man you'll want to call your friend. This bar offers an atmosphere suited to welcome people from all walks of life to enjoy a drink and a tune.

Live music lives here.

The Hickey Tavern hosts touring bands and ensembles from all around the country, and many favorite local musicians-turned-friends - we're always looking for the next big thing.


When we're not booking the best music, our retro juke box does the rest. Flip through a variety of classics and maybe even a few things you haven't heard before, it's your turn to pick!


So when you see that purple awning lit up after dark, stop on in, pull up a chair,

and kick it old school with us!


& we also love to book touring bands
