Gooski's is the gold standard for Pittsburgh dive bars. The spot's true character is revealed by mottos scrawled onto the wall behind the bar like: “We decide who has a good time,” “If you needed Yelp to find this place, you don't belong here,” and “The Rules: Know what you want; have your money ready; don’t make us kill you. P.S. No making out at the bar. Crying at the bar is also forbidden.” With a dozen drafts and plenty of bottled beers to choose from don't forget to also order Gooski’s beloved pierogies and wings.
This unassuming family-owned bar may not look like much, but try their famous deep-fried mac & cheese and you'll see why we love Nadine's.
This bar is so brightly lit up at night, that they can be pretty hard to miss. Also, they have great cocktails.
You'll have found Sonny's Tavern when you see the mural of cats drinking PBR on the outside. And on the inside, you’ll find plenty of humans drinking 24oz cans of PBR (no cats, though).
Let our your inner Adele at this super fun Pittsburgh establishment. With over 1500 songs to choose from, there's something for everyone at KBOX, plus a substantial drinks menu.
This underrated dive boasts a wide beer selection and a relaxed vibe, perfect for happy hour, or really any hour.
Dee's maintains a diner aesthetic with a hipster vibe, dubbing itself, "The Adult Playground." PBR is always on special -- $1.75 every day. Head upstairs to “The Attic” for seven pool tables and karaoke night.
In addition to creative bar food and snacks (such as three chesee grilled cheese and polenta fritters), The Smiling Moose also offers a variety of drafts and live music and comedy several nights a week.
This classic Irish pub serves up a number of beers on tap plus weekly specials like $1 off Fireball shots on Fridays. Count us in.
