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.

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.
