Game Day in the Burgh

ShareTweet about this on Twitter

You’re not getting the full Burgh experience until you watched a Steelers game in Steel City. Whether at Heinz Field or in a sports bar full of black and yellow, here are some of the best ways to cheer on Pittsburgh’s favorite team:


Where to tailgate?


Stage AE hosts a free tailgate before every Steeler’s home game. Complete with radio broadcasts and your favorite tailgate games, Stage AE’s tailgate is perfect for pre-game family fun. The best part? The lot is adjacent to Heinz Field, so you’re just steps away from the start of the game.


Looking for something beyond the parking lot? Check out Sailgate. Spend up to 3 hours before each regular season game to celebrate on the water. Your ticket to enter the Fantasy Yacht includes an all you can eat buffet, meet and greets with a different Steeler’s legend each game, and access to the yacht and its on board bar before and during the game in cases of bad weather.


Need somewhere to park? As a tenant at Nova Place, you are eligible for $30 parking (cash or credit) just one mile from Heinz Field!


During the Game


Locals call these spots their favorites for the food, the drinks, and the amount of big screens airing the game. From North Shore to Southside, if you’re not at the game, or the Steeler’s are away for the weekend, here are some of the best spots to watch the game:


Jerome Bettis’ Grille 36 North Shore


McFaddens North Shore


Mullen’s Bar & Grill North Shore


The South Paw Southside


Carson City Saloon Southside


Redbeard’s on Sixth Downtown

After the game, if you’re looking for a bite to eat, or maybe a place to stay, check out these spots where you can utilize your Nova Place’s Perks Partners discounts:


Steel Cactus


Claddagh Irish Pub


Bill’s Bar & Burger


Homewood Suites by Hilton


Game day is no joke in the Burgh, so whether you’re headed to the 50-yard line, or to celebrate with some beers, grab your friends, get out there, and Let’s Go Steelers!
