About

After each game, the players of the Pittsburgh Rugby Club used to gather for postgame grub and drinks. As they mulled over how much money they spent at these feasts, they proposed, half-jokingly, that they might as well own their own bar. The idea lingered for several years until, in the spring of 1999, one of the club's beloved members, Eddie Short, passed away. Eddie's enthusiasm for opening the bar rivaled that of his comrades, and, with the memory of their teammate firmly etched in their minds, the Pittsburgh Rugby Club raised enough funds to purchase a storefront.

Since opening in the fall of 2000, the gang's pub has appeased palates with an abundance of wraps, burgers, cheesesteaks, and sandwiches. Indoor dining quarters and an outdoor patio accommodate clientele, who can surf on WiFi throughout their meals or watch any Steelers, Penguins, or Pirates games. Music fans can tap their toes to occasional live bands or the sound waves emanating from the jukebox, and music haters can cup their hands over their ears in protest.
