    Book details


Pittsburgh's drinking culture is a story of its people: vibrant, hardworking and innovative. During Prohibition, the Hill District became a center of jazz, speakeasies and creative cocktails. In the following decades, a group of Cuban bartenders brought the nightlife of Havana to a robust cafe culture along Diamond Street. Disco clubs gripped the city in the 1970s, and a music-centered nightlife began to grow in Oakland with such clubs as the Electric Banana. Today, pioneering mixologists are forging a new and exciting bar revival in the South Side and throughout the city. Pull up a stool and join Cody McDevitt and Sean Enright as they trace the history of Steel City drinking, along with a host of delicious cocktail recipes.

"'Pittsburgh Drinks'? Does it ever." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"Enright and McDevitt walk us through the booming age of jazz clubs, through the fight to include women and people of color in bartenders unions, from heady times full of joy, verve, and drinking with celebrities to the more somber eras of World War II and how war abroad changed the way bars and clubs ran at home. We see how those changes in turn molded Pittsburgh into the beautiful and lively city that it is today." BevSpot
