We had a great time at Tavern 245 last week, about thirty people showed up including the infamous Pittsburgh blogger Johnny Jakes from, "JK in the City." I've always been drawn to Tavern 245 for the great open space on the second floor, our group found it very accommodating (no one even said anything when we shuffled 10 tables around for our comfort). We enjoyed the quesadillas, guacamole, nachos and "two grill cheese," but "the farm," pictured above, is our favorite. The farm comes with three different sliders, chicken, pulled pork and a mini fillet. The pulled pork and mini fillet deserve more respect than the chicken, but no one respects a chicken.
The menu is interesting and the drinks are cheap enough to make you want to go back. They also have a small smoking room on the first floor, probably one of the only bars you can smoke in in downtown Pittsburgh now that Bar 110 has gone non-smoking. We are headed to 110 tonight, check back for updates.
Post a comment if you know of any other downtown bars that accommodate smokers, some of our members need their fix and are tired of going outside during happy hour.
