It's Thursday, in the great city of Pittsburgh. You maybe asking yourself, what's one to do on a Thursday night that's for the Grown and Sexy. Cioppino, located at 2350 Railroad St, Pittsburgh, PA 15289, Neighborhood: Strip District, (412) 281-6593 Here's their cyber address, www.cioppinoofpittsburgh.com.
Cioppino, on a Thursday has everything from, good music, food and drink specials 5-7pm that include $5.00 house wine by the glass, 1/2 off draft beer and a specialty food menu. I must say the bartenders were very knowledgeable, cool and easy on the eyes. I did not know this, you can bring a bottle of wine to an establishment in the Pittsburgh/Allegheny County area, whatever you fancy, and you will be charged an open bottle fee. Only wine, Mr. Jack Daniels can't make an appearance he's already there.
Please check with your local laws, I don't want to hear about any of my readers being escorted out of an establishment because they brought their own bottle.
When you walk in from the 23rd street entrance, you have 2 ways to go; to the right the Cigar Bar or to the left, the smaller restaurant with bar and live entertainment. Let's take a tour before we sit down with Mr. Jack Daniels.
If you keep heading to the back you'll get to a wall with a lovely sofa, if you go to the left, into the back you have the fine dining area and if you look all the way in the back you'll see a big archway, with decorative doors. That's for the bigwigs, the really special people.
Let's go back by the beautiful sofa, go the right and keeping walking you will enter the Cigar Bar. I give Cioppino great credit, first you don't smell the smoke in any other part of their establishment and even when your back there the smoke is not bothersome. Smoking permitted but they do frown up the lower class of cigarette smokers.
In the Cigar bar, there is a bar and with a couple seats. There's sitting all around with tables, sofas and very big comfortable chairs. It's very chill back there. The decor has a Ralph and Mortimer feel, remember their office at Duke and Duke from the movie Trading Places. But it's very comfortable and laid back in the Cigar Bar. Now if you're there to hear the band it will be very hard so head back the smaller dinning area and bar.
Whoops the most important part of the tour the bathrooms. If you come out of the Cigar Bar make a right then another right and voilà, the beautiful bathrooms. Really very nice, classy and clean bathrooms.
Now you've taken the tour, head on out grab a sit, a drink and listen to the smooth sounds of The Terrence Vaughn Band. The band plays from 7pm-11pm. If you get there late around 10:30 and you obviously missed the show tip the guys they may do another half for you. Try and get there early, they are very good and it does get crowded. So you want to get a good spot and enjoy yourself. And you will.
The crowd is mixed more non-urban but a great place for the grown and sexy. And you can smoke the legal stuff in the Cigar Bar.
Thursday night Cioppino is killing it great entertainment, food and music. So mark this place in your planner for next Thursday. Until next time, stay fabulous! And who knows I may see you down there next week.
