Our community of luxury apartments in Pittsburgh provides residents with quite a few options when it comes to dining out. As you work your way through the Strip District, you’ll find a selection of restaurants and bars you’ll want to be sure not to miss. One of our recent favorite finds has been Bar Marco, a cozy spot with top-notch ambiance, fine wine, expertly-crafted cocktails, and farm-to-table style tapas.
If you’re coming for date night, a birthday dinner with friends, or simply a relaxing Saturday evening on the town, you’ll want to start with a cocktail. The menu offers a selection of custom drinks, as well as the option to collaborate with the highly-skilled bartenders to make your own. Simply choose a spirit and let the experts know about your ideal flavor profile. Within minutes, you’ll be sipping a house made concoction tailored just for you.
For dinner, choose a few different dishes that peak your interest, and share amongst the table family-style. Their charcuterie board is an excellent place to start, and be sure look out for rotating seasonal selections including their delicious arancini, or their smoked veal brisket with zucchini and farro verde. Ask your server about the perfect wine pairing, and order a bottle or two for the table to enjoy. On the weekends, Bar Marco also offers brunch from 10am-3PM, serving up everything from lemon buttermilk pancakes to their famous fried zucchini eggs benedict.
Downstairs, you’ll find the wine cellar, which offers an intimate setting for a table of ten. Seats at the wine cellar come with five courses and a natural wine pairing for just $120. This is the perfect spot for a milestone birthday or other special occasion with friends and family.
For larger events, check out Union Hall, a gorgeous space with tons of natural light located above the main dining room. Union Hall is the perfect spot for company happy hours, rehearsal dinners, or anniversary celebrations. The space can comfortably fit 65 guests for a sit-down meal, and over 100 for more free-form, mingling parties.
