Mario’s East Side Saloon
If you’ve been living in the Steel City for long enough, you probably heard a few tall tales that originated within the confines of this famed watering hole. While the original Mario’s located definitely worth crossing the bridge for, we enjoy its younger counterpart located in our part of this community.
Offering a cozy parlor on the first floor with an open-air bar upstairs, Mario’s East Side manages to keep its neighborhood vibe while fitting in with its more bougie surroundings. Providing a full menu that outperforms even the best tailgate, you’ll be finding lots of excuses to hang out long after the season ends.
Stinky’s Bar and Grill
To find the best spot to catch the game requires you to sometimes venture deep into the heart of Yinzer country. Stinky’s is a neighborhood joint that’s provides mouthwatering food, so you can get in a filling meal while watching the game on one of their 26 HDTVs.
Non-descript from the outside, once you step through the door, you’ll be greeted by a classic U-shaped bar that provides an unrestricted view of the game. Their upstairs room offers a much cozier setting, perfect for a small watch party. The menu is simple yet extensive and their famous burgers are not to be missed.
The Urban Tap
If you enjoy watching the big game surrounded by a couple hundred of your closest friends, this modern gastropub located might be your best bet. Supplying a clean, modern vibe along with one of the largest selections of draft beers in the city, by the end of the night, you probably won’t even care about the final score.
Everything on their menu is prepared from scratch and will satisfy nearly all diets and tastes. You’ll also enjoy their Southside location that offers the same menu and great service but with a slightly more laidback ambience.
