A Real ‘High Profile’ Brunch Spot

Around 40 people signed up to brunch on the 37th floor of One HSBC Center this morning. It had been a long time since I had visited the top of Buffalo’s largest tower, and must admit that I’ve often thought about the missed opportunity that was vanquished when a top-floor restaurant closed years ago. Fortunately for today’s brunch-goers, an available upper floor office is in the process of being converted into a space that should continue to lend itself to similar opportunities in the future (meetings, conferences, brunches, etc.).

Those lucky enough to attend the special brunch were also treated to a rooftop tour that turned out to be pretty spectacular… and windy! Our tour guide must have been a stand-up comedian in a previous life – he made the lap around the top of the tower both entertaining and informative. Between the Bloody Marys, the breakfast and the views, guests will be talking about this unforgettable excursion for a long, long time. What I was not aware of was that One HSBC Center is actively promoting the conferences and the tours via its website, for anyone interested in booking ‘high profile’ meetings and/or panoramic tours of the cityscape. Click here for the details, and stay tuned for (hopefully) another Roaming Buffaloes power brunch and rooftop tour.
