In accordance with local and state health safety guidance, and to ensure the safety of our community, the 2020 Thursday & Main Happy Hour Series has been postponed. The Thursday & Main Happy Hour Series created awareness and spin-off business for Downtown restaurants, bars, retailers, and service-oriented businesses. Many Downtown businesses are still open and offering curbside-pickup and delivery. We encourage you to continue to support each of them and look forward to gathering with you again when it is safe to do so.

Thank you for your continued support of Buffalo Place and Downtown Buffalo.

Jordan Walker - When It Rains It Pours

We are excited to announce that special guest Jordan Walker will be playing with Eric Van Houten this Thursday, July 25th!

Walker was born and raised in Vernon, Texas, and displayed a precocious talent for music, singing the National Anthem at local sporting events when he was just three years old. Walker decided to move to Nashville and take a shot at the big time. It was there that Walker met McGuire, a native of Fairway, Kansas. Walker McGuire were soon gigging regularly in Nashville, and earned national exposure. As word spread about Walker McGuire, the two became road warriors, playing up to 300 concerts a year around the country. In 2015, Jordan Walker met Luke Combs over beers at a bar in Nashville. The two budding artists went on to write what would become Combs’ second No. 1 hit, “When It Rains It Pours.” It was released in June 2017 as the second single from his 2017 debut album This One's for You. The song reached number one on both the US Billboard Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts respectively, giving Combs his second number-one hit.

Here is JORDAN WALKER singing "When It Rains It Pours," the Luke Combs hit which he co-wrote, at the South Florida Fair on January 31, 2019. Walker stopped b...

Our Story

In accordance with local and state health safety guidance, and to ensure the safety of our community, the 2020 Thursday & Main Happy Hour Series has been postponed. Thursday & Main, produced by Buffalo Place Inc. is a weekly happy hour series presented at Fountain Plaza. The recently re-named series, previously branded as Queen City Social, continues to pay homage to the venerable Buffalo Place-produced summer tradition, Thursday at the Square. Thursday & Main is presented by M&T Bank.

The free and open-to-the-public happy hour, presented on Thursday evenings in the heart of Downtown Buffalo at Fountain Plaza (Main at Chippewa Streets), continues the mission of Thursday at the Square: creating awareness and spin-off business for Downtown restaurants, bars, and retailers.

Thirty two years ago, in 1987, Fountain Plaza hosted the first Thursday at the Park season, produced and managed by Buffalo Place. One year later in 1988, crowds for the happy hour became too large for the space. The series was shifted to Lafayette Square and Thursday at the Square was born. Fountain Plaza was recently renovated by the City of Buffalo as part of the Cars Sharing Main Street Project and is a beautiful public space in Downtown.

Buffalo Place is the not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the economic health and quality of life in the Downtown Buffalo business improvement district. The organization strives to manage public and private sector resources to create the best possible environment in which to live, work and play.

This should be better publicized. It's a cool weekly thing with cool sounds. The thin crowds though says the word isn't out yet.
