Beneath The Bank

The Hideout Beneath The Bank, coffee tables made from safes

Beneath the Bank is our one-of-a-kind lodging. The overall vibe of this little hideaway is what we like to call Prohibition Chic. hotel Buffalo
Each room is individually designed, and themed after notorious bank robbers of the era (think John Dillinger, Bonnie & Clyde). hotel east aurora ny


Guests can also gather in the cozy speakeasy-inspired common room for a game of shuffleboard. Or in the vault for a late-night toast to the happy couple.

Beneath the Bank is the perfect cocktail of carefully sourced vintage pieces and modern luxury! boutique hotel East Aurora NY

Speaking of cocktails ... take a step outside the door and you're in the heart of downtown East Aurora, a destination in itself. Bars, restaurants, shops, art galleries - it's all right there. Like The Bank, the village is an original. 

Bonnie & Clyde Room

This is the kind of intimate, romantic hideaway the iconic couple would have loved. Tucked away in a private corner, it features soft colors and curvaceous antique furnishings.  hotel buffalo ny

John Dillinger Room

The most notorious bank robber of them all was an unabashed ladies' man. He also loved attention. The Dillinger is reminiscent of a 1930's bachelor pad - sophisticated and bold.  hotel WNY

'Pretty Boy' Floyd Room

Seen as a modern-day Robin Hood in his own time, 'Pretty Boy' Floyd was celebrated for destroying mortgage papers and handing out sums of cash from the banks he robbed. He also liked to bake pies. It includes two bedrooms that are filled with playful patterns and pops of color. boutique hotel buffalo ny

Frank 'Jelly' Nash Room

Responsible for 200 bank robberies, the charming Nash specialized in blowing open safes with nitroglycerin, a jelly-like explosive. A cozy room, it's packed with personality. hotel East Aurora NY

'Slick' Willy Sutton Room

Nick-named 'Slick' for his talent at executing bank robberies in disguise, Willie Sutton was also admired for his gentlemanly manners. His namesake room is a handsome, masculine space complete with an Art Deco gentleman's wardrobe.


Once the Boardroom, the bridal suite's handsome oak paneling and fireplace provide a quiet, stress-free refuge for the bride. It's the perfect backdrop for 'getting ready' photos. 

The Bank is a sister property to The Carriage House at Rushing Waters, a three-bedroom carriage house just a short drive away. The Carriage House is available should an offsite bridal suite be desired.


The main floor Coatroom also houses an ADA compliant restroom. When events are not taking place, the Coatroom reverts to its alternate identity: an ADA compliant guestroom with adjoining bath.
