Devastating Fire at Old Pink

A multi-alarm fire has caused significant damage to the Old Pink at 223 Allen Street.  The fire that broke out was reported just before 6 am this morning.  The beloved dive bar has been an Allen Street institution known for cheap drinks, awful restrooms, and steak sandwiches.

This is certainly a sad day for Allentown, and all of Buffalo for that matter. The Old Pink has been a legend and an institution. Old dive bars such as this are fewer and fewer. One thing is for sure – without The Pink, Allentown would never be quite the same. A bar like this a rarity.
