The Pub is one of the best places in the city to see a good, old school rock and roll show. The drinks are relatively inexpensive and the atmosphere actually feels like a rock club. There's tons of old rock and roll memorabilia hanging on the walls and ceiling: Hellacopters, Supersuckers, all kinds of great stuff. It's like a rock and roll museum right there at the end of the 31st Street Bridge.
I love this place -- kind of seedy, great live acts, and cheap beer -- highly recommended.
Worthy – I saw a really good band there called Cultivator. I think they are from Pittsburgh. The owner seemed like an unhappy dick. I'd still go back though
Good Music.Owner is a hothead – i like this place for the music, but the owner joel is an unfriendly, angry dweeb. i went to a reunion show with shape of rage, battered citizens, and some of the guys from half life....it ROCKED! joel the owner is always bitter though. he scowled at me and critiqued my motorcycle..because it wasnt up to his "caliber". while i think this place is just OK, it's NO electric bananna! now Johnny & Judy knew what they were doin'!!!!
Despite reinventing itself, this pub still wears the shadows and scars of its previous life as badges of honor. – The Scene
The former biker bar no longer has rooms dedicated to panties and human heads; but the large collection of grinning skulls and mirrors painted with beer names (enough to stock a drunken fun house) still shock and amaze. A recently renovated bar allows even more of the music- and drink-hungry to pack in and listen to local and out-of-town bands while sipping drafts of Iron City poured from a vintage '50s gas pump behind the bar.
From punkers to indie kids to tattooed bikers, the diverse crowd is usually between 21 and 45, and it comes to hear the banging music. Don't dress to impress. Though it's one of the very few clubs still dedicated to rock music, showcasing punk, indie pop and hardcore, be prepared to hear just about anything when you walk through the door.
This place is dope – The bands freaking rock, I was stoked all throughout the night. The beer specials got me faded super quick and cheap.
