Why We Love the South Side of Pittsburgh

Ask anyone who lives or has lived in Pittsburgh in the past and they will tell you that living on the South Side is living in a neighborhood where everyone knows and looks out for one another. They will tell you that no matter where you go, you will always find a familiar face when walking down the street.

Things to do on the South Side by Day

The South Side can be said to be the Greenwich Village of Pittsburgh. It is the city’s best walkable neighborhood. Things are pretty calm during the day, as those without 9 to 5 jobs wander the streets and go about their business.

They say the South Side is one of the few places where you regularly see both old ladies with blue hair and punk kids with blue hair. The working-class neighborhood turned into a popular destination many years back, as dive bars, record stores, funky coffee shops and lots of tattoo parlors began popping up.

One of our personal favorite spots on the South Side is the Beehive, one of the most awesome indie coffee shop we have found in any city.  You can also stop by the Milk Shake Factory for a variety of decadent shakes and sweets.

Best of all? The South Sider Riverfront Trail provides five miles of beautiful trail for hiking and cycling with stunning city views as well as a forest of trees. The trail connects with the Great Allegheny Passage, which goes all the way to Washington, D.C.

Things to do on the South Side by night

At night, the South Side turns into party central. The neighborhood has one of the highest concentrations of bars of any place in the country, ranging from sports bars to upscale clubs to dive bars for the hipsters and alternative types.

East Carson is Pittsburgh's Bourbon Street, with all manner of watering holes packed into every block.  Whether you're sipping elaborate cocktails at the speakeasy-style Acacia, throwing back a pint of Fatheads, award-winning beer, or hopping between the street's many dives, the neighborhood has all your needs covered. 

Live music is abundant on the South Side.  You can catch shows nearly every night of the week at venues like Club Cafe, Rex Theater and The Smiling Moose.  

The South Side Slopes

Years ago, Pittsburghers decided they weren’t going to let a little thing like a giant hillside get in the way of their neighborhood, so they built steep, winding roads up the hill, with houses the entire way up. Many of the houses have crazy-long staircases that lead all the way down to the Flats.

Some organizations will use the staircases as part of walking tours to tell the history of the city. Others use them as part of a fitness routine by running up and down the staircases. The charm of the Slopes is one more reason why the South Side is a cool place to be.

More about why we love Pittsburgh to come.
