It was a night full of laughter with good friends. The place is cozy, loved the atmosphere! The only kind of meh thing is that the food is expensive but it was a great experience. Preacher was hilarious!!!

Prices vary depending on the headliner. There is a group on $20 for four people or $15 for two, but it cannot be used for premium shows or Friday or Saturday. The website calendar is up to date.

Dinner before Improv (2 Replies)
Looking for a romantic dinner before going to the Improv comedy theatre on Bridge St. Any recommendations?
August 30, 2010|
Response fromNeedsavacation|
There are no romantic restaurants in the Waterfront shopping center where the Improv is. There are a lot of chain restaurants, some with OK food, but that's about as much as you can say for the place. But you bring your romance with you, and for price you can't beat the Costco $1.50 drink and hotdog deal! So assuming you do choose to leave the Waterfront area, there are many options available. Try the Casbah on Highland Avenue, or Soba on Ellsworth. Interesting places, great food.

Need advice for one of my nights! (4 Replies)
Hi, I'll be in your great city this time next week and I can't wait. It's been 20 years since I've been there! We have most of our days/nights outlined with either definite things we are going to do, or at least ideas. Out of the 4 nights, 2 will be shows/dinner, 1 will be a night tour (but will end about 9:30). We are trying to decide what to do with our other free night and maybe something after the bus tour. We don't want to go to nightclubs - we usually just have drinks with dinner. ...More

How do you feel about wearing lots of layers, and heading up to Central Park's Wollman Rink for a bit of ice skating? That (plus a rewarding hot cocoa) will keep you pretty warm.

Need hotel advice....going to improv and ikea! (7 Replies)
Ok, so every year my husband takes me to Ikea and Pittsburgh for my birthday. This year we will leave on Saturday, check out some shopping possibly at the Waterfront, and have dinner and a show at the Improv...then back for the night. The next day we will hit up Ikea before heading home. Looking for a hotel that is possibly near the Improv (or offers a shuttle) and that we can easily get to Ikea from the next morning. We have stayed downtown in the past but possibly want to try something else...More

There is only 1 hotel at the Waterfront: Courtyard Pittsburgh West Homestead/Waterfront Also, my advice is not to eat at the Improv. Eat at Rock Bottom, right across the street from the Improv. Food is really good! And, Waterfront and IKEA are not near each other. IKEA is about a 30 minute drive from the Waterfront. If you want any other questions answered, let me know.
