    Great bars to visit for a first time visit to Pittsburgh?

    Planning on visiting Pittsburgh for the first time next season. Any bars/areas to recommend.

    Welcome to the board!

    I don't drink, so I don't know anything about specific bars, but Station Square seems to be a popular destination for nightlife in Pittsburgh (my wife likes some of the restaurants and shopping down there when we visit the city, and there appears to be a decent number of bars and clubs down there too). You can take one of the Gateway Clipper boats from Heinz Field to Station Square after a Steeler game. There are some nice restaurants up on Mt. Washington (take the Duquesne Incline from Station Square...awesome views overlooking the city), and I would assume that there would be some nice bars up there as well.

    Kid friendly when I was there two years ago.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    Any area inside Heinz Field is highly recommended!

    When I brought my daughter there last summer, our server brought us back to see Jerome's private room (unfortunately, Jerome wasn't there that day, but just seeing the private room itself was cool). Comfy leather couches, multiple flat screen TV's, a bunch of his old memorabilia (his cleats, a bowling pin from when he bowled his 300 game, etc.), autographed jerseys and pictures from his friends in the sports world, a bunch of Steeler books (the ones written by Dan Rooney, Myron Cope, Andy Russell, etc.)...very cool.

    Took my niece there on a game day this past year and it was crowded beyond belief. Good food and great waiter--who got us our seat BTW. Have to go early.

    According to my nieces, the bars are on the Southside but I do not know any specifics.

    Of course, there is Hard Rock at Station Square as well.

    GO STEELERS!

    Station square is nice, but I like the Bettis Grille, it has that Steeler football feel and its a nice place to visit. If you can handle it they have a 36 oz. steak, and the Mens Room is unique.
    When you use the latrine, facing the outside you can see eveything happening while your relieving yourself, but the patrons can't see in...cool.
    There'a a park near by and its a place the whole family can enjoy.
    If your not into steak, they serve some great hamburgers and a variety of good stuff.
    If your a visitor for the first time or if you never been to Jerome's you won't be disappointed its a great grille and bar.

    There are tons of bars in the Burgh, South Side has plenty of them but its more for the younger crowd and they can get out of control at times, I would recommend Station square and the Bettis grill when you visit.

    This is a great City and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else, but if I had to make a second choice, get ready Cal people, it would be San Diego if I could afford the housing down there.

    Station square in sonic unleashed. Not sure if there is one. At lease on the wii version there isn't. If your talking about sonic adventure 1/ sonic adventure directors cut you start off in station square when you play sonic.

    If you are in the forested area however you just go up the stairs and go inside the train and you end up in station square.
