The Pittsburgh Pub Guide - Oakland

Cumpie's Picture This large friendly place has a small rectangular isalnd bar at the front, a restaurant area behind and a pool room further back which has another bar, unstaffed when I visited. They serve the usual domestic brews on draught, plus Bass and Guinness. The barman informed us that the unusual name is derived from the Italian American word for 'friend'. While we were there they held a "frozen tee-shirt competition" which was something of a disappointment for those of us more familiar with wet tee-shirt contests! Karaoke night Sunday.

Panther Hollow Inn A plain friendly corridor bar with a half-timbered interior. The local team have an impressive selection of darts trophies on display. Four pint pitchers cost only $5. Later in the evening, very busy and smokey.

Peter's Pub They serve the usual draught beers plus Guinness in this large pub apparently made of three properties knocked through. One part has a rectangular island bar, and the other two parts are mainly aimed at diners, although there was no-one eating when I was there.
