“It's a Captain Morgan Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Great atmosphere an right across the street from the hotel. Each night they have specials and last night it was $4 beers and tonight it was $4 Captain Morgan drinks. Great bar tenders and plenty of people coming in and out . You will enjoy this place.

“Large Martini Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

This is a great bar with a long menu of martinis. It gets very crowded and loud especially after Pirates games. We had a good time.

“Not friendly service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

This is a pretty cool looking bar. Long and narrow on inside, but has an old school feel and is kind of charming. We might have just caught it on a bad night, but the two people serving us were not very friendly and just seemed to not enjoy being there. Drinks were reasonably priced and they had some specialty concoctions that were interesting.

Hello! I am glad to hear you enjoyed the atmosphere and drinks at Olive or Twist, but sincerely apologize for the unsatisfactory service you received. If you would please share a few details with us so we can take correct measures. In what area of the restaurant/bar where you seated, and what time did you visit, on which day? If you know the names of the staff mentioned that would be helpful.

Thank you and I hope you will visit again and have a more enjoyable experience!

“Fun place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Great location - located across the street from my hotel. Very close to PNC Park, so it was a fun place to stop after the Pirates game.
Drinks were very reasonable priced.
