Best Bars For Networking In Pittsburgh

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.

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.

Pittsburgh’s Buzz Worthy Bar: Burgatory

Rather than offer a cute, but probably overdone, analogy tying Burgatory’s name to its heavenly menu selections, I’ll just say this. Burgatory Bar is awesome. But really, it’s where all other burgers go to die. I couldn’t resist.

Pittsburgh’s Up-and-Coming Artists: New Victorians

Ben Hardt is not a pretentious rock star. He might play a handful of instruments and have his own band that began releasing music from the first of three albums this past November, with the last of them being released between May and June, but he is in no way pretentious.

Style In The ‘Burgh: Lawrenceville

Usually when people think of Pittsburgh, style isn’t something that first comes to mind. Much of the time, Steeler jerseys and Penguins T-shirts are an outsider’s definition of fashion.
