We went twice in one week. It's a throw back to 70's. We went to several bars. Every one was different and great. Plenty of parking. It's such a great area!

We headed over to Station Square during the Steelers game and found a bar and grill to share a beer and finish out the game. Great fun interacting with all the fans! Sorry for the loss -- they're coming back!

As part of a city tour, we enjoyed seeing this historic neighborhood. The way that the vintage structures have been preserved and adapted to modern uses is an encouraging use of our historic architecture.

Parking is a challenge. But if you manage to find a place, you are for a treat. Old a architecture and old style buildings. Plenty things to do and see. Bars go face the restaurants will surround you and entice you to visit them. Either way you choose you will have fun.

Southside is noted for its bars and restaurants. A lots of students and young professionals visit the bars and restaurants especially in the evening. There are many good restaurants in this area and different shops.

Beautiful area for walking and biking, with a great choice of high-end and mid-range restaurants, bike trails, and you might even catch a glimpse of the Steelers football team practicing!

One of my all time favorite places to eat in Pittsburgh is Fatheads on E. Carson St. A MUST!! And as a musician, in the same neighborhood is by far one of the best guitar shops I have ever been too.
