#1 Pgh. bar in my opinion – Firstly it is my opinion from visiting there as often as I can make time that the bad reviews were all written by those people that just could not behave themselves and or act in a civilized manner and were asked to leave. The staff and managment make every effort to make each and every person to come thru the door feel 100% welcome and know they have a friend in the Real Luck Cafe. An absolute must visit place in the Pittsburgh gay scene. If you like the quiet corner bar atmosphere stay in the ground level bar for drinks and quiet conversation, prefer the louder club scene to dance and watch the go go boys on the bar head upstairs for a great time. Very mixed crowd and a great place all around. I am happy to have found Lucky's and now have a gay bar that i actually enjoy.

best wings – The REAL LUCK CAFE is great. Everybody is down to earth. You can go in alone, and not, feel like an outcast. Drink's, food, music & dance's are all good. TRUE SAVINO YOUR JUST MAD BECAUSE YOU ARE BARRED. AND I YOUR EX AM NOT. J.B. GONE 4-EVER.

The place to be! – How can you not go here? The people are friendly and the crowd, mixed. There are no cliques. Everyone is welcome.

You can hang out at the upstairs bar and watch the people on the dance floor (and the handsome go-go dancers!) under the laser lights, and request songs from the DJs.

Or, you can go downstairs, play the Juke Box and enjoy some awesome wings and pizza in large booths or at the bar with the cheapest drinks in town. (Definitely more quantity for the buck when it comes to drinks!)

The staff is extremely friendly, the bar is clean, and there is an adjacent parking lot and street parking, both of which are FREE!

I highly recommend it.

PISSED! – Yeah, don't waiste your time. I drove an hour to meet friends here. Got there, they declined my ID because I lost weight. I then showed them 3 major CC's, my social security card, and they would not even look at them! Place is a dive anyways, don't waite your time! They will never see me there, or any of my friends. Their loss!

A comfortable place welcoming both men and women. – The Scene
The Real Luck Cafe is a mixer in the truest sense: all ages, both sexes come here. A younger crowd relaxes downstairs around the large bar; upstairs, most patrons are older. The glory days of disco still reign at the dance bar on the upper floor: '80s music plays, a glittering mirrored ball hangs over a small dance floor, even a Ms. Pac Man machine stands nearby.

Who's There?
Friendly bartenders and the Real Luck(y) Cafe host go-go boys for a packed house on Fridays and Sundays.
