Best Pub in USA

The country’s top drinking cities vary widely in their vibes and offerings, but there are some standout spots that are worth traveling to in order to raise a glass.

You may think of Pittsburgh as a cold, dreary place where Steelers fans and college students get drunk, but this Steel City is having a major renaissance.

And it’s got a serious history of drinking, including the first brewpub in America (City Tavern) and the birthplace of improvisational comedy (Second City).

It’s not all about beer in this Irish-American town, but the booze culture is strong here. O’Malley’s Pub is a local favorite for its cosy atmosphere, traditional pub food, and live music. But it’s the location that sets this pub apart: It’s 55 feet underground, making it a true experience to reach the door. You’ll need to walk down ramps, travel through limestone cellars that predate the Civil War, and be prepared for a little exercise if you want to visit this hidden gem.
