Pittsburgh bars/restaurants with "get close" seating i.e. sofas, couches, benches?

Yes, eager to share info with another person in the same boat.

(Not sure how to send a private message here, but if you do, message me to talk more freely. I don't so much like that it's mining my messages and popping up links to every establishment I mention.)

Hi Kelly,

Not much. I got lots of $$$ recommendations...fine for not-a-first-date. I thought The Firehouse Lounge might be good. The upstairs is a nightmare of "playas," but Embury, downstairs, is a cool place. Not so good for getting close, though.

Casbah is good for getting close over drinks (though not for dinner).

Abay (Ethiopian) could be good if you're adventurous.

Shiloh Grill on Mt. Washington - not great for getting close, but it has outdoor seating and is seconds away from the overlooks.

Happy to continue trading ideas!

Hi,
I'm trying to find restaurants and bars with seating that allows me and my date to sit close to each other. Could be a lounge-y atmosphere with sofas or couches. Could be a restaurant with benches on one side (but no chairs on the other, so that it's natural to sit together on the same side). Fireside Lounge comes to mind, but I'm wondering what others there are. Downscale/casual is fine too.
Thanks!
Eric
