"Loon", as it's called by frequents, is the closest thing to your average college bar that Shadyside has to offer. Smoking is allowed, there's an outdoor patio area, and there are several electric darts boards. The girls are average and it's shy of classy, but it's a decent bar.

Be extremely cautious of your bar tab. Be smart and use cash. The bartenders always try to slip extra items on your bill and there's a lot of shady collusion going on behind the scenes. Having multiple servers only exacerbates the situation. Any disputes will generally result in a bartender's refusal to produce an itemized bill, telling you to call the manager during the week, and until then "get the fcuk out" because they "don't like your attitude." You are well advised to leave because there's no use in carrying on an argument. A sober and belligerent bartender who thought he was a wise guy by slipping additional items on your bill isn't going to lose an argument to someone who has been drinking. And he will enjoy the commotion of demonstrating his control over the situation by kicking you out.

Ahhh, Rest in Peace, 2006. This bar may have been nice back then, I wouldn't know, but its a horrible place now!!! The owner is a pervert who not only condones sexual harassment of female guests, but bans them for "interfering with business" when they hadn't done anything wrong, but fell victim to inhuman conduct. The management is equally cruel, and its not a good idea to mess with them: otherwise, they start cruel rumors, and call the police for no reason, making up any lie they can in hopes of getting you arrested. They're also complete strangers to the Good Samaritan laws. I personally saw a passerby forcefully dismissed from the premises for helping an unconscious victim on the lawn. If you're feeling faint or worried about falling victim to a medical emergency, stay away from that place! Buy drinks at Spin, Harris's Grill, 5801, but not this heckhouse!!! And, for your own safety, cooperate with the bouncers' every whim, should you choose to drink at the bar. If they don't like you, they'll do everything they can to wreck your life.

Journalists, this is your chance! Expose this all in a scandalous article!!!

Pros: None, if you think about it.

Cons: Everything. Slanderous bouncers in particular.

I have been going to the Shadyside Saloon for 6 years. I think I have my own reserved seat. It is very much like a "Cheers" if you go there frequently enough. I like having a place where everyone knows my name. Very friendly, a bit chilly, but great place to meet up with friends!

Great bar-very chill--excellent dart boards, nice selection of booze. Service is h_t or miss. (h_i_t is an inappropriate word???) Some of the bartenders are really on the ball and some just stand around starring at their own clevage.
