I like this area. It's nice just to walk around and visit the myriad of shops and just spend the afternoon if you have nothing better to do. We had taken a tour bus for this area about a year ago and lots of history pointed out to us. So this was actually our second or third visit to this... More

My review is essentially an affirmation of many you will read about this area. It is extremely interesting and can be fun but as you age (over 30?) it probably isn't a place you'd want to frequent on Friday/Saturday nights (Southside Works excluded). I've seen a couple of people compare this to Bourbon Street, which is a very solid comparison... More

If you are looking for a great day or evening place to visit then the Southside will give you all that you need. Was there in July 2016 and simply walked the streets. Stopped at many places to have a beer and grab some food. Weekends bands are playing and the place is rocking with music. Great place to simply... More

Loved spending time in this neighbourhood. We watching the Penguins in the playoffs at a couple of different bars here. Good for young and old.

I used to live on the South side when I went to college. I've noticed some of the local places I used to love are gone. What is happening?

South side was really awesome! So many bars and restaurants and seriously there was something for everyone! Even clubs and a saloon or two! For a Thursday night, it was pretty lively too! Younger crowd and very fun :)

Whether you are a native of Pittsburgh or a traveler passing through, there is soooo much to do on the City's Southside! From stores and shops and boutiques to clubs and city theaters to tons of restaurants for foodies, you can never get bored! Daytime or night time there is a forceful energy that exists as you walk through the... More

This is one of the most updated yet quaint area of Pittsburgh. Not only does it have all the conveniences but also some great neighborhood bars.

went on a Sunday and most stores were closed. Lots of good restaurants were open, but many places were empty and up for rent or sale.
