What you just read was part of Cliff Clavin’s famous Cheers rant dubbed the Buffalo Theory.
“Buffalo Theory is also the name of a new beer-forward bar that’s now soft-open on Polk.”
And what you read that time was... just sort of a fact.
Take a look at it. You’ll notice a subtle library theme happening, from the vintage newspaper clippings on the walls to the leather sofas hugging the wall behind the bar, where you can settle in and raise a glass to Norm, the buffalo head above.
Or maybe hang out at the bar by the other mounted buffalo (which is made out of gears, for some reason) and chat with the cicerone-certified bar staff about the 30 draft beers listed on the classroom-style chalkboard and that include anything from Almanac’s Saison Dolores to Calicraft’s Oaktown Brown.
And—right. Poleng Lounge vet Tim Luym handles the menu, so expect plenty of beer-friendly dishes like buffalo meatballs and caramelized nuggets of pork belly served with grilled peaches.
Like they weren’t going to grill the peaches.
