Carson Street is an absolute blast to hang out with family and friends. There must be 100 places to eat and drink here. It's an eclectic neighborhood with bars and restaurants for everyone. Even though we are too old for this kind of place, we ended up getting back to the hotel at about 4AM because we were having so much fun. The party so much at the South Side that even designated drivers drink red bull's with a SINGLE shot of vodka.

While having drinks in Market Square our bartender suggested that we see South Side. South side is really for the young drunk kids. What I seen in south side was a bunch of girls dressed in skimpy outfits and very large women drunk and dancing in the bar and shaking the ground. I did not revisit south side, nor do I have plans to.

I love going to Southside in Pittsburgh. During the day there are tons of places to shop and eat and during the night it bustles with young professionals spending their hard earned entry level monies.

Every so often you get the bad apples who like to fight and cause general havok, but I have personally never experienced it, just heard about it via word of mouth or on the news.

As such I give it four stars because it is a lot of fun by day or by night.

We stayed on the south side after reading the reviews. The neighborhood was a bit rundown and Carson St. Was littered with garbage. We stopped by a few bars and had dinner at the Pittsburgh Steakhouse. We went on a Sunday so a lot of the stores were closed. Was ok. We had a better time visiting the strip and university park.

On the 4th of July it looked like plenty of hippy looking students walking around with old geezers and sleezers with alcohol in brown paper bags or openly guzzling down a beer. Not the usual normal sight. Glad I was wearing my firearm! Ha ha ha!
