Did you know Pittsburgh has a real 1920s style bar that serves up authentic pre-prohibition classic cocktails? It’s at the Firehouse Lounge in the Strip District and the name is Embury. All fresh ingredients and real Absinthe spirits that are up to 138 proof! These drinks are so strong you’re only permitted to drink two. The place is all class and the bartenders even dress the part – sounds like fun! Order food with your cocktail (menu here). Watch the TV above for the whole scoop from PghTrib.

It’s not a college bar. You know, we don’t do any vodka, we don’t do Red-Bull, we don’t do long-island iced teas… there’s no 25 cent drinks, no.
