The Swannie House
Established in 1886
The Irish tavern known as the Swannie House resides adjacent to the grain elevators along Buffalo's inner harbor. Officially established and opened for business in 1886, it served the many sailors and workers who inhabited the world's 3rd largest seaport at the turn of the century. The rich history of the building extends even beyond the bricks that make up its foundation, however. It is said that the sale of the Swannie House by it's former owners, the Williams family, in 1892 helped fund the creation of the original Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo located on Bryant and Hodge Streets.
On the corner of Ohio and Michigan St., it is located in the heart of the Old First Ward and minutes away from the HSBC arena. This tavern is a local favorite for its Irish charm, light-hearted atmosphere, delicious array of food, and reasonable prices. Come stop in before a hockey game, for our 35 cent wing Sundays, or for our famous fish fry voted Buffalo Spree's "Best in WNY" in 2011! It has served many generations through the best and worst of times, and will continue to do so for many decades to come. We personally invite you to enjoy some great good and even better company at the Swannie House.
