We happened upon this place walking back to our hotel after diner. We were instantly drawn in by the rockin music. There was no cover charge, drinks were reasonably priced and the band ("Shaky Stage) was awesome. Super nice people and vibe.

Great if somewhat grungy bar in the heart of Allentown. Friendly folks, good music 365 days a year, good variety of beers.

A less than no frills bar with cheap drinks, good music, and friendly staff. We don't end up here too often, but it's usually a pretty good time when we do!

My boyfriend and I visited Nietzsche’s for a few drinks on Saturday night. The main draw was the live music, and the location is great, too. We had to walk from a parking spot quite a distance away, but luckily the weather was cooperative so...More

Good selection of beers, good prices and excellent live music. We went on a Sunday and enjoyed Dr.Jazz and the Jazz Bugs and the surprise performance of Megan, the bartender. A gem. Ecclectic atmosphere, you feel welcome. We recommended to everybody in Buffalo!

Live Music Every night, not always great live music, but live music none the less. This is a great bar, with an across the board crowd. I was in town for Wines in the Wild at the Zoo and we had an afterparty at Nietzsche's,...More

We had a great night out at Nietzsche's-- there was some kind of music festival going on, and the bands were nonstop all night. I particularly loved a bluesy duo that played right in the bar. Very friendly and a great place to hang out....More
