Although this small neighborhood bar is located near University of Pittsburgh, this is not a rowdy college bar. Some regulars sit quietly reading books, some click away on their laptops complaining about writer’s block, and others throw back darts and 22oz Old German beers -- which explains why these many regulars refer to the dive bar as their living room.
