Right out of the 40’s, nice cushioned booths with round tables, dim lights, and excellent drinks made to perfection by Scotty and crew. Smoking is permitted and cigars for sale. Nice bar setup and juke box music. It is cash only, with ATM in back. A very nice night out, and the prices are right.

A hidden Shadyside gem of a dive. Come for the cocktails, stay for the jukebox and people watching. Keep an eye out for the old school cash register, too (it works!).

What a spot! I can’t believe I’ve lived in Shadyside for a year and only recently found this bar. Bring cash for drinks and the jukebox, and grab a pack of cigarettes. It’s such a great vibe with drinks that punch and service that’s friendly every time.

One of Pittsburgh’s best bars. Mardi Gras is everything a classic cocktail lounge is supposed to be.

Amazing. The space is a great balance of lively and open with private and busy. The employees all make eye contact and smile, greeting you and saying goodbye.

If you walked into a hole in the wall that was also a dimensional wormhole to a bar from the 70s, you would be somewhere close to Le Mardi Gras. It’s got New Orleans knick knacks, an old school jukebox, and a cash register that makes you say “wow, are they really going to use that?” And they do. It’s not super cheap but not super expensive. And it’s got comfortable booths to chill in. Highly recommend dropping by.

I love this place for many reasons. They use fresh squeezed juices to make their cocktails, and for only a dollar or so more, you can get good liquor in your drink. There’s an older style jukebox and there’s usually a trendy crowd on the weekends. The bartenders are friendly, and the patrons are pretty chill.

Bartender was so friendly and made us the best greyhounds! Beware as they are strong. My husband enjoyed his cigar and we absolutely loved the jukebox! Will definitely be coming back every time we are in town.
