About Us


Meet Brian

Cocktails Bar & Grill became a realized dream in June of 2003. Brian Curneal, original owner and proprietor, bought the property to make a place that wasn't just a means to build a business, but an establishment to build a neighborhood and a family with his wife Kristy. Cocktails became a household name among the service industry employees in Hamburg, as well as patrons from surrounding neighborhoods and beyond. Brian passed away in 2010, and Cocktails has been taken on by Sam Holmes, friend of Brian and now current owner.


Meet Sam

Sam took ownership of Cocktails in August 2011 and his mission has been to make this bar the place to be for our signature best pour - best price in town. "I began my career as an engineer but innovating Cocktails and being a part of the Cocktails family is one of my favorite accomplishments. I am truly proud of what Cocktails is and what it is becoming. I give all the credit to Brian for starting this place and the entire staff since they are the face, body, and heart of this bar." -Sam Holmes, Owner

As Cocktails grows, so does it's family, both employees and patrons alike. We encourage you to take the time to visit us and become a part our family too!
