Look Inside Our Shorts

A Little About Shorts

Geoff Harder and his family have owned and operated SHORTS Bar in Fairport, NY since 1976.  Long proclaimed as THE drinking establishment in Fairport, the location has been pouring drinks in the area longer than most visitors have been of drinking age.  

The inside has been transformed into what only can be described as organized chaos, as it is full of memorable stories, photos collages of members and events past, and glimpses into how large the family of SHORTS Bar Members has grown to over the years.  

That atmosphere can’t help but make you smile, which is probably why SHORTS is the place to unwind whether you are sitting at the bar stool with 14 taps of regional and craft beer, near the fireplace in the winter, playing pool, shooting darts or coming in to catch live entertainment.   
One of the largest and still growing karaoke bars around Rochester, SHORTS has a sound system that rivals most stadiums. Watch the schedules and Facebook for special karaoke nights.   


Everybody Looks BETTER in SHORTS

40 Years of Serving Up Sanity



There is a lot of drinking history to be found on this location. Back in 1926 this location was the site of the Prince Albert Hotel, server of fine whiskeys and frothy ales.

Before it was SHORTS it was Henry’s Turn Point Pub for 2 years.

Few will remember, but the day SHORTS opened in 1976 there was a fire that nearly took the building and shut down the place for the 30 days of it’s grand opening.
