Overall - April 2015:
Our first attempt at checking out Kully’s was thwarted by a Niagara IceDogs playoff game at the nearby Meridian Centre and the ensuing chaos associated with hockey night in downtown St. Catharines. We decided to try again after the Dog’s OHL season came to a close a few weeks later and weren’t disappointed. The downtown core has been undergoing a renaissance lately, first with the arrival of the aforementioned hockey arena, and building on that momentum with the new performing arts centre taking shape across the street. Plenty of new shops and pubs have popped up over the past year, giving us a few new prospective BHON establishments to try out.
When we arrived at Kully’s the place was packed, which is a good sign considering there weren’t any noteworthy events going on downtown that night. We ended up sitting right up front next to the roll-up doors giving us a streetstide view that got a bit chilly after the sun went down. Fortunately, the bartender closed them shortly thereafter as we were too lazy to do it ourselves. (And didn’t want to look like pussies either ;)
No Guinness on tap, but they had over a dozen Ontario craft beers available, including Niagara’s own Silversmiths & Oast House. We sampled a few at the bar and ended up ordering several pitchers of various brews. Much like our Strange-Brew nights, some were more enjoyable than others but that’s subjective based on personal preference.
As for the wings, we ordered a couple pounds of hot, stupid hot and suicide. They were above average size with textbook Buffalo flavour. The stupid hot jumped out on the menu as a challenge to us and had a smokey, chipotle flavour which we quite liked as well.
Price-wise, the bill came in around average for a BHON night. Not the cheapest place, but decently sized, above average wings and plenty of beer selections on tap to make Kully’s a new favourite, definitely worthy of a place in the BHON rotation for the next downtown pub crawl!
