Buffalo & Rye: Bennetts Hill gets a bourbon diner

Written by

Birmingham bar operators Bitters 'n Twisted – the team behind The Jekyll & Hyde cocktail bar, Island Bar, The Victoria and others – have announced plans to launch its latest venture, Buffalo & Rye, in October.

Located next to the successful Bodega bar and restaurant on Bennetts Hill, Buffalo & Rye has been treated to a £150,000 investment to turn it into an Americana-themed bar and diner.

The intimate venue, which will seat up to 50 people, will feature a menu promising the 'very best in dirty burgers', along with gourmet hotdogs and pit-smoked meats, including ribs and beef brisket. Customers can also expect American-style pancakes with maple syrup and crispy fried bacon for brunch, and posh sandwiches (think smoked chicken, pastrami on rye) for lunch.

When it comes to drinks, Buffalo & Rye bills itself as a 'bourbon diner' and will feature a range of rye whiskeys and cocktails that will cater to connoisseurs of American liquor.

For the decor, Bitters 'n Twistd founder and director Matt Scriven says that the venue will not be 'tacky Americana' but instead will have an authentic 'stripped back and urban feel' with the aim to create a 'laid back US vibe with that Bitters ‘n Twisted edge'.
