The Oldest Bar Near Pittsburgh Has A Fascinating History

History’s just about everywhere you look in the Burgh. Stroll around downtown when you’ve got some spare time. You’ll encounter plenty of historical landmarks, restaurants, and other attractions that have their own tales to tell. Even Pittsburgh’s bars have their own storied histories. We’ve already journeyed to The Original Oyster House (the city’s oldest restaurant) and Park Tavern (Pittsburgh’s oldest bar). Today, let’s go to Jean Bonnet Tavern, perhaps the oldest bar near Pittsburgh.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
