Gooski’s Bar in Pittsburgh
John Altdorfer Photography

People call Gooski’s a dive bar, but it’s anything but. People call it a lot of things actually: punk, libertarian, hipster, rock and roll. Call it what you will, it’s one of Pittsburgh’s beloved sud houses and a Polish Hill institution. The front room is dark with a long, black bar to the left and a bank of red pleather–upholstered booths to the right. The wings and pierogies are legendary. The room is lit with red lights and the bartenders screen movies and sports games from open until close. The back room has a ping pong table and a stage where local bands perform on weekends when there’s a $5 cover to get in.
