The KeyBank Center is in Downtown Buffalo, New York, so you're within walking distance of loads of bars and restaurants.
The third oldest zoo in the United States, Buffalo Zoo first opened its gates in 1875. Today, the $12 admission fee gives you access to see its hundreds of mammals, amphibians and birds.

Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park
Whether you have a genuine interest in military history or just want to check out some of impressive military ships on display, this is a great day out for all ages.
Cobblestone Bar and Grill
With its location right by the KeyBank Center, this place gets busy with those enjoying a beer before the game. There's a great vibe in here and it's a great place to go to get excited about the game. There's a basic bar food menu and a decent range of beers and alcoholic drinks.
Soho Burger Bar
Not too far from the arena, you'll find this lively burger joint. It gets fairly busy and is great for a party atmosphere and a top notch burger. Burgers start at around $10.
Hutch's is a little further out, at around 3.5 miles from the KeyBank Center. This is a reviewer's favorite and offers up some brilliant food. Large plates start at about $20 and there's a cocktail menu starting at $10.
Buffalo gets a lot of snow over winter. If your event takes place in the snowy months, come wrapped up. However, visitors take note - an old law states that it is illegal to intentionally throw a snowball at someone's head in Buffalo.
You can drive to the KeyBank Center, which is located not too far off the I-190.
If you would rather save on parking and gas (and you would rather not risk getting stuck in traffic), you can take the Metro. You can park for free at any of the Metro Park and Ride lots and take the Metro into Downtown Buffalo.
If you're visiting town for a concert or game, then you could stay at one of the hotels near KeyBank Center and simply walk to your concert.
You can expect to pay from around $7.50 for a beer and $6.50 for a hot dog and fries basket.
There are loads of food and drink concessions to choose from and the KeyBank Center has a surprisingly good selection of craft beers. You can get service to your seat too for many events.
There are parking lots along Perry Street, Washington Street and Swan Street. Get there early to be sure of a spot.
Parking prices range from $10 - $20 on game days or when there's a big concert on.
There are several free WiFi hotspots around the arena, but you won't necessarily be able to connect from your seat. It's in designated hotspots only.
If you're attending the venue for a Sabres game or for a special occasion, then for just $20 (with 3 days' notice) you can get your well-wishes on the video board in the arena.

Good venue tor World Championships. Small crowd was disappointing.
Liked: Fairly new arena. Good sight lines and great atmosphere.
Disliked: Music much too loud. Get rid of the organ. Long lineups for concessions needs attention.

Liked: I think the performer I was there to see made it the experience that it was, not so much the venue.
Disliked: The fact that the male ushers would allow females to go up to the front of the section I was in and stand in front even though they didn't pay to be up there. Also disappointed in the fact that my husband couldn't go out to smoke during intermission - the man working the door was extremely rude when my husband asked if there was a designated smoking area.
This is such a great venue and I applaud your service and staff.
Liked: What a great place!
Venue was awesome.
Easy access; great neighbourhood; lots of drink and food vendors inside. My first and not my last visit. Looking forward to more great concerts.
Liked: Great sound system and perfect size.
