Fun place to visit

South Side is the place to be for the young millennial crowd. Plenty of bars and restaurants within the 28 blocks of Carson Street.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Southside and walked along Carson Street and had dinner in a couple of the restaurants along the way. Very eclectic neighbourhood with lots of tatoo parlours. A bit seedy at night.

This is one of the Hot areas. Bars, Clubs etc all on One street or strip. I say stop and ask local what place to go. I am sure you will get many answers as I did. The Best part is you can try most as you are bar hoping. great way to discover the City and learn new things.

Definitely experienced local flavor on the way. His shop had so much music related stuff, hubby could have stayed and perused forever. Dave was... More

If you like bar hopping this is the place. Start at jack's bar and work your way down the street. Too many bars to name.

Nice example if old Pittsburgh. Lots of local places to eat and shop. Later in evening undesirables come out. Go when it's light

I visit the South Side every year for a conference in the downtown area. We stay in the South Side because it's a cool place to hang out after the meetings and there are some great places for food and entertainment. It's easy to blend in and the people are rather nice. You still get some people asking for handouts... More

When I lived in Pittsburgh, South Side was mills, bars, houses and some businesses (stores, doctors, etc.). Now it is diverse and busy. Go there, spend some time. Before you go, if you drive , figure out a plan for parking.
