A family-owned business harkening back to the days of smooth, Rat Pack-style social clubs..
Sitting at the bar, you expect to see Peter Lawford burst out of the men's room, followed quickly by the fists and heels of Sammy, Dino and Frank--especially if you have one too many of the expertly made highballs. A seemingly 360-degree mural of Mardi Gras high jinks--courtesy of a Carnegie Tech professor's $800 bar tab in the '50s--and plenty of necklaces made from cheap plastic beads make every day feel like Fat Tuesday.
Starting life as a speakeasy, the tiny bar still has the look and feel of a private, after-hours social club. Its deep booths, low ceiling, haunting picture of the bar's founder and eclectic mix of clientele make you feel both at home and outside the familiar. Grapefruit and oranges are hand-squeezed on the bar for the freshest greyhounds and screwdrivers in the city.

many rounds for the house and you always missed me. I am alive and well in Houston.
Corlee, corla, corleone!!!! This one of the greatest bars in the world. Have a Rolling Rock on me anytime!!
The most relaxing bar in Pittsburgh. Everytime I enter the bar I am greeted and served quickly. The atomosphere is very relaxing and the people are very friendly. Best drinks in Pittsburgh.
Kicked in the head.. Le Mardi Gras...where stiff drinks flow like the waters of the Youghigheny and the conversation carries on till they kick you out. Hands down the best drinks in the 'burgh. Show up after a six-pack, and be prepared to let the LIT's push you over the edge. Keep on rockin' in the free world!
