I've been here a couple of times and have enjoyed it every time! There are tons of restaurants and some shopping too. There are chains and local places, both for the restaurants and stores. There are a lot of young people around but I think older people would enjoy this area too. Come check it out!

South Side is one of those place that many shops have come and gone. It once was a place that had as many Churches as it had bars. Though the sad thing now is that churches there have bebyeen replaced by other businesses. South Side has a college town feel to it on weekends, since Pittsburgh has about 15 colleges... More

I ate at a restaurant in this area and have driven through it a number of times. It was described as a "college kid" area by a local, and I could see that once I was there. It's not far from the downtown area and has plenty to offer in terms of restaurants and shopping. I believe the casino is... More

Another nice neighbourhood in the city of Pittsburgh. Clearly, I'd live there if I was to be transferred to Pittsburgh by my employer. Lots of bars and restaurants, a must go for any tourist in town... I personally went a dozen times in a month.

South Side is a great place to spent the day. Lots of cool shops offering just about anything you'd like. A nice selection of eateries, both chain (Cheesecake Factory) and local, all of which offer good choices for just about any like wallet. Hofbrauhaus itself is worth the drive. Such Fun! The area is nicely laid out, so it's easy... More

This is Pittsburgh's version of New Orleans' Bourbon Street. Plenty of good bars and restaurants, and a hangout for young partiers. Great nightlife, good music, and a lot happening -- especially after dark. If that's what you're looking for, then this is the place in Pittsburgh for you.

This is a great place for shopping or bar hopping. Just depends on your mood. Be prepared to walk though.

Back in the 80's the south side was written off as a dead man walking. The huge Jones and Laughlin steel mill closed and the economic heart of the area up and down the slopes just died. Now 30 years later its back as a happening Bar scene and students from Pitt and Carnegie Mellon renting apartments. Its great to... More
