This unassuming Squirrel Hill eatery serves low-priced comfort food in a subtly modern environment. Salads here are robust, topped with anything from salmon to chicken or even steak. The sandwich menu is extensive (featuring everything from a veggie wrap to a barbecued beef brisket hoagie). When you order one of their gourmet burgers, you get to spice it up with items from a long list of toppings (including smoked gouda, portabella mushrooms, and hot banana peppers). Other belly-warming comfort foods on offer include crab cakes, a penne sausage bake, and home-style pot roast. Steaks here are aged and hickory grilled. Sunday Brunch sees the menu augmented with omelettes, "Hobo Hash," and even a breakfast Reuben. It may be unassuming, but anyone who says there's nothing fancy about this place is off their rocker. See website for menu and calendar.
Patrons don't mind making the trip to Blawnox if the evening ends at Moondog's. Live music is the heart and soul of the place. The music ranges from jazz and blues to rock and pop. The bar is famous for bringing national acts to the stage on weekends. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are open stage nights where anything goes. The menu features American dishes. See the website for the events calendar and more.
Located in Shadyside, Buffalo Blues was recently voted as having the best wings in Pittsburgh. You'll understand the vote after tasting some of the 13 special sauces, ranging from sweet to "Hotter 'n Hell." In addition, the menu features a variety of sandwiches, ribs and salads. Swordfish and catfish are also favorites. On the weekends, either a DJ or a band performs. Music ranges from blues to reggae to classic rock and roll. There are also some pool tables for those who need more than wings and a beer to occupy their night.
Club Havana was into swing bands and Latin music before they ever became the "in" thing. Their DJs play Latin and salsa music every night from 10p-2a. Merengue dancing lessons are available Sundays from 8p-10p. The club has a full martini bar and a humidor, so the place is usually filled with cigar smoke, albeit not from real Cuban cigars.
This club has a dance floor and a variety of drink specials. There are also themed nights occasionally.
Pittsburgh may not be the center of gay nightlife as seen on "Queer as Folk" but Studio 54 comes close to it. Named after the legendary club in New York, this nightclub is home to hip-hop, dance and techno. The club is very popular on the gay scene but straight aficionados of disco and pop go there as well. The party really gets going on weekends!
Paparrazi is the kind of place where you will find twenty-somethings mingling with senior citizens. The two-story club serves delicious Italian and American dishes. Thursday through Sunday, live jazz bands get the place hopping. The theme is art deco, which makes the mirror-lined spiral staircase to the second-floor dining area a challenge after a few glasses of wine. When the weather is nice, patrons can dine outdoors. The restaurant also hosts private parties.
Blues Cafe provides just what the name says: the blues. Most nights feature a band playing blues music in the dark, smoky bar. Happy hour is held Fridays through Mondays. Patrons enjoy the mellow atmosphere, the cool sounds, and the award-winning burgers and sandwiches. There is some outdoor seating available.
Patrons will feel like they stepped into an English pub when they go to Piper's Pub. The wood paneling provides the perfect atmosphere for the English music and brews. Occasionally, bands perform here. Typical pub sandwiches and snacks are served throughout the day. The best thing about this pub is that it provides a quiet place to chat with friends. See website for menu, scotch and beer lists, brunch details, and soccer fan info.
The Club Cafe has created a unique mixture of coffee shop and nightclub in one small room, and features live music every night. Music ranges from rock to jazz to blues to funk. With art deco booths and translucent bars the decor comes together to create a 1940s-50s feel. The food is a bit different than what is found in the average bar. Patrons love the roasted red potatoes with Gorgonzola dip and the prosciutto and goat cheese. All shows are 21 and up only.
