Took some shots of the South Side's exploding nightlife scene last night... two new major clubs have opened up recently... with Diesel slated to open next weekend

when the sun goes down... Pittsburgh gets ready to party

first a couple shots from the South Side Works... it seems nighttime concerts there are becoming common

Carson St. probably has more neon beer logos than any other street in America

Carson St. is illuminating more and more historic facades at night

the thing I love about Carson St.... is that it's not just the best nightlife district ever... but it's also a very functional and practical neighborhood... grocery stores, clothing stores, music stores, dentists, hardware stores, gyro places, gyms, everything you need is here

Carson St. was PACKED with people having fun

There was a show at the Rex, but for some reason the marquee wasn't on (it was on earlier in the evening)

Esquire Magazine rated this one of the best bars in the Northeast

61315298.100_6429.jpg

Club Cafe is a GREAT place to catch a band

Pittsburgh: always finding new uses for old churches

61315302.100_6433.jpg

Carson St. even has an artistic side

The coffeehouse that started it all 15 years ago

61315404.100_6437.jpg

This old bank is now a chic club... City Saloon I think it's called

61315405.100_6438.jpg

another example of Carson St.'s diverse retail component

Diesel (formerly Nick's Fat City) is opening next weekend... billing itself as a "sophisticated live music venue"

The Town Tavern is a highly publicized mega-club that just opened... passersby thought I was a member of the "paparazzi"

Very cool Evergrey, one of the more dynamic areas of Pittsburgh. Great to capture all that growth on film finally. This should change many misconceptions about the 'burgh in some parts of the country!

Great pics, as always. There seems to always be something new on the South Side!

I am reminded of a "discussion" I once had with someone online about Pittsburgh. At one point he said "East Carson St. does not a nightlife make." Even ignoring the fact that he evidently forgot about the Strip and some other areas, it was a dumb comment. Carson is obviously a great nighlife spot. Maybe the guy hadn't been here since 1990 or something, LOL.

I was in town this weekend and spent some time on the Southside. I always wondered if someone had the $$$ to take over the properties by 10th (even though occupied and put up a really nice complex of apartments overlooking the river and downtown).

I suppose it would be a fortune to buy out the company that operates there and level that old brick building though.

I am pretty sure the Dee's they are talking about for getting a good beer is the one in Regent Sq. I may be wrong and the one on Carson is run by the same guy but I am pretty confident the one in Regent Sq is what Esquire was talking about.

Great pics!

I've never heard of a Dee's in Regent Square.

Anyways... here's a link.

I believe the one in Regent Square is called Dee's (or maybe just D's) Six Pack and Dogs. Or something like that. I have heard people talk about it and say it's great. Good selection of beers apparently.

ah yes... that Six Pack and Dogs place was recently named as one of the best places to get a beer by a different publication... which might lead to the confusion

Thanks for clarifying Evergrey. I knew I wasn't hallucinating.

PghUsa, there ain't nothing like D's on a Sunday with a gret dog and some great beer.

You know we are quite lucky to have two out of the top ten places in the country to get a beer. They are teh Sharp Edge and D's in regent sq. Incredible selections!

Oh man, Sharp Edge is one of my favorite places. Those buffalo bites are soooo good. Nothing like some honey bbq buffalo bites and a glass of raspberry beer (the only kind of beer I like) :)

Raspberry beer reveals quite a bit. Personally, I love Scotch DeSilly on draft at the SE. Belgian Brows are the best!

What does it reveal? That I'm a girl? I knew that already :P

Actually I wish I liked regular beer. Everyone seems to enjoy it so much and I feel like I'm missing out on something, heheh.

Everytime I go to the sharp edge, my wife orders the rasberry beer and many of my male friends just can't stand it....

Seriously, try Scotch DeSilly. My wife likes it.

It's a nice Belgian Brown with a taste you may like. High alcohol content for a beer.
