We would love to tell you that the success of Mario’s South Side Saloon was born of the blood, sweat, and tears of three hard-working professionals who possessed unparalleled vision, but that would be stretching it…In truth, Mario’s was created by a local Pittsburgh legend named Bob Pessolano in 1982. After 25 years of devotion to his South Side patrons, he retired in 2007 and left his establishment to 3 young professional drinkers who had the foresight to not fix which was not broken…
In 2011, Mario’s undertook its first expansion with its sights on Shadyside. After consultation with 2 close friends, Mario’s East Side was born.
In 2018, Mario’s was approached by the owners of the iconic Peter’s Pub in the heart of Oakland. After 44 years, George and Peter Leventis decided they want to get out of the game and pass the torch to a group they knew would respect their vision. We were honored that they thought of us. In May of 2019, Mario’s Oakland Saloon opened its doors.
Today we are a unique blend of Neighborhood, College, and Sport’s Bar all rolled into one. We offer our customers a welcoming and relaxed environment where friends both old and new can hang out, where you can test your wits at Team Trivia, enjoy Karaoke, and catch your favorite Sport’s team.
Every Wednesday night @ 8:00 PM. Make sure you get there early to get a seat.
