Belle Epoque landmark in downtown Pittsburgh with a swanky dining room and original 1920s speakeasy bar
If these walls could speak they’d be sure to gossip about the many celebrities, VIPs, and bold-faced names who’ve passed through since the doors opened in 1916. The hotel underwent a recent multi-million dollar renovation to bring things into the 21st century, but tradition still reigns supreme in public areas, like The Terrace Room, an award-winning restaurant with a molded plaster ceiling, grand mahogany arches, and a mural covering the back wall titled “The Taking of Fort Pitt.” The hotel wisely decided to revive its classic speakeasy space, a suave hideaway serving Old Fashioneds and Rob Roys in a noir atmosphere rife with vintage details like flocked wallpaper and scarlet tufted banquettes.
In the Area
Pay homage to Pittsburgh’s most famous son at the Andy Warhol Museum, which offers an incredible insight into the genre-defining artist’s life, along with a ton of interactive exhibits and spaces, including a room full of silver balloons. Check out what the new generation of provocateurs is up to at the Mattress Factory, a cutting-edge contemporary art space in which artists-in-residence create room-sized installations. Then tuck into some fancy pub grub at hip Meat and Potatoes, chef Richard Deshantz’s ode to approachable farm-to-table fare like lamb burgers with arugula and tomato jam.
