Yes. Yes. Yes. The Wheelhouse and Bar is located in the Rivers Casino and probably isn’t the first place you think of as a sports bar. However, it is one of the better places to catch a game in the city. With a super posh interior and a wall full of high def televisions, The Wheelhouse attracts a variety of people from industry professionals to weekend gamblers. The TV’s are all sports oriented, 100% of the time, with all college or pro games you want on the weekend. While it doesn’t provide a great diversity of beer, it does have a full liquor menu. The service is unbeatable. There is also an outdoor amphitheater next to the river where you can escape for a great view or catch a local band. It claims to house the largest television in Pittsburgh, but who knows if that is true. If your favorite team is losing, travel 20 feet and you can change your luck by gambling at the poker tables.

Gibsonia, PA 15044
(724) 449-9090
Hours: Daily 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Reviews, Directions & More Info

Located off Route 8 the North Park Club House is a bar that is more regionally known. In the North Hills it’s one of the more family oriented bars where parents can bring their kids and enjoy a relaxing Saturday or Sunday. With TV’s all around the bar and restaurant you can catch any game that is available. If you have kids this is the place to keep them occupied. There is skeet ball, air hockey and even bowling. The facility provides entertainment that children of all ages enjoy. The Club House also provides something that you normally don’t see. At any given time they conduct a “Fire Drill” in the restaurant. The staff comes around with whistles and hats and proceeds to put a table’s tab on fire giving the meal and drinks free.

Beer Nutz

1335 Freeport Rd.
Pittsburgh, PA 15238
(412) 963-6882
Daily: 11a – 12a
Website: www.beerpgh.com

Located in the Fox Chapel area, Beer Nutz busted on to the scene two years ago. The building has one side as a bar/grille and the other as a beer distributor. Beer Nutz is one of those unique places that allow you to sample and go. The bar features a recently renovated expansion with more tables and high definition televisions. Featuring one of the best beer selections in town, Beer Nutz offers a wide selection of micro brews plus six packs in the city. With a plethora of fridges, you can pick and choose as many differing beers as you wish. The televisions feature any and all sporting events daily. The menu is your typical pub food and pretty average. But, the beer selection is bar none and most can be found on the distributor side if you like what you are drinking.
