What is The Lounge at the End of the Universe?

We love Sci-Fi. We love great Beer and Wine. We love our community. So, we decided to create a place that has it all!

The Lounge at the End of the Universe (or LEU), is an all ages venue, located on the ground floor at the Gem Center for the Arts. It's a place to come for a fun date, to bring the kids, or just to enjoy some great local brew or glass of wine, in a playful, retro-futuristic atmosphere.

Enjoy STEM based activities, chess nights, magic classes for children and adults, and many more things to come.

BREW BUS BUFFALO STORY:

Walking brewery to brewery in 95 degree heat, Dawn & Bill were eventually passed by a Brew Bus offering rides to area breweries OUT of the scorching heat! Now in Buffalo, NY, (Out of the elements) you can see the best breweries in Buffalo in style! Take an all-inclusive bus ride to multiple breweries in the Buffalo area! Your VIP experience includes beer tastings at all breweries and no waiting in lines! Also get to take home some BBB Swag!
