Pittsburgh boasts a history rich in steel and sports as well as a ghostly past. In fact, the city that’s been voted one of America’s most livable is also home to many of the nonliving. From east-end universities to north-side homes, ghosts abound in the city — some even patronizing area bars for one last round. If you’re ready to share some spirits with your spirits, have a drink at these five haunted Pittsburgh bars.

If great tips, a flexible work schedule and a fast-paced atmosphere sound like something you’d enjoy, sign up for one of these three bartending classes.
Pittsburgh is pretty well known for being a city where the booze flows as heavily as the three rivers, but not every bar in the city is right for every occasion. There are some that you would never take a date to, and some where you could never watch a football game, while there are others that are perfect for either of those occasions. Just like a date, or watching a football game, taking someone out for a business deal or going somewhere to schmooze with company directors can be all about finding the perfect setting. These are the city’s best places for professionals, young and old.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a bar that doesn’t have a Terrible Towel proudly on display, offering game-day drink specials, or a TV blaring at game time. In fact, if you’re out on game night and not watching the Steelers play, it’s basically blasphemy. If you’re new to the city, or visiting and don’t fully understand the black and gold pride, grab a drink without getting caught in the middle of a fight at the closest thing to anti-football bars this city offers. Granted, in Pittsburgh you may not be able to escape watching the game, but at least you won’t have someone chanting “Here we go, Steelers!” in your face.
