Have you ever been some place for the first time and you can tell when you walk in that everyone else there is a regular? They're all giving you that "What are you doing here?" look. That's Hoople's. If you can tolerate that, and a less than pleasant staff, it's not a completely bad place to stop and have a few drinks. The prices are very reasonable. The bar is small and definitely not a place I would go on a night out with friends. Over all, it is pretty much your typical Pittsburgh local hang out.
