“Great Party Place. Best Nightlife.”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

Recently drove from the cpl hour drive from Ohio to visit here. So glad I did. It was just an over night trip to bar hop. Had the taxi take us and drop us off on the main street with all the bar. Lots to see. Most didn't charge a cover charge. Each had a fun/unique theme going on. Fast food was open late. Everything was walking distance then just needed to get a cab back to the hotel. We were here over St. Patty's day weekend and the lines were not long. Pleanty of cops out and about but they didn't seem to bother anyone, even the younger college age people who were obviously leaving bars. Would be a perfect place for girls night out, bachelor party, ect. Glad I found this little gem.

“Nice assortment of restaurants, shops and etc”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

Pretty cool place! Love the feel and vibe there during the day. Also love the assortment of mom and pop stores and not the franchise or chain stores that sometimes take over neighborhoods.

“Fun for the younger set.”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

The fun can get out of hand on the South Side, though, so be careful. We generally go in the daytime for the great restaurants and shopping. There are theaters there as well, and we've seen some fun plays there.

“Great Bar Crawl”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

You can't walk a whole block without passing at least watering hole. None are alike. parking can be a pain. Some shopping and oh yeah there is food there too. A good 'taste of Pittsburgh' destination. Can get rowdy at times avoid major holidays - the rookies are out....

“Historic!”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

This is a really pretty place to visit--so many cool little shops. There are parts of South Side that look shady, but parts that are equally upscale and well-kept. The Cheesecake Factory in South Side is ALWAYS super busy (expect to wait 2 hours at suppertime on a weekend), and SUPER good.
