Newly renovated, this place looks nothing like its former self. The Old: dirty, dark, etc.. beer was cheap, outdoor deck.
The New: Very nice interior. Everything in the place is clean and new. It is small inside, but the outside deck remains and people can go out there and chill as well. On opening night they had a band there which I enjoyed b/c it was sort of a bluesy sound and I happen to love that kinda music while sippin on the brew. They have an upstairs which at this point is not open. It is still being renovated and supposedly they will be having their live music up there when it is completed. That will be nice b/c the downstairs is so small. The beer is no longer as cheap as it was. I can't remember how much it is to be honest. It is nothing over exorbitant. The atmosphere unlike any other Oakland bar that I can think of mostly because of the decor and slightly higher beer prices. Less people who are just going out to get trashed for cheap will come here. If this place starts to have some quality live music fairly frequently I will definitely start going there more often. I liked what I saw so far. It has potential.
Note This bar has changed ownership/re-opened since this review was written.
This was a review for when this establishment was known as "Pittsburgh Cafe - Newly Renovated".
