Redbeard's Sports Bar and Grill

Redbeard's - where everyone knows your name. Similar to the iconic bar in the late 80’s sitcom Cheers, that’s the atmosphere that Redbeard's owner Lenny Simoline aims to achieve in both locations of his sports bar restaurant. Decorated with oil canvas paintings, all done by Dino Digerino, featuring iconic names in Pittsburgh sports, the minute you walk into the Downtown Redbeard's, you know you are in a true upscale sports bar.

Redbeard's started out on Mt. Washington 24 years ago on Shallow street. Six years ago, Simoline decided to branch out and expand the brand and he knew Downtown was just the place to do it. He chose 6th street because that was his favorite block with so much going on. He grew up in the Brookline area and lived in Downtown for 12 years and noticed the growth in Downtown with more and more people working and living in the area. He also noticed that despite being right across the river from PNC park and Heinz field and right around the corner from now PPG Paint arena, that Downtown did not have a true Sports bar. He himself was a true sports fan, having coached hockey in Europe, Canada and several local high school teams.

What Mr. Simoline takes most pride in his businesses is the reputation, his name and the amount of detail he puts into making Redbeard's a quality dining experience. “If I notice a spot on the wall, I will be there in a minute with a toothbrush scrubbing it out. My places are spotless. I want to ensure a clean space with fine quality food.”

He also focuses on consistency between the two stores, something that was a bit of a challenge when they first opened the Downtown location and still is because the menu is constantly changing, new items being added twice a year.

What a lot of people may not realize about a sports bar is that business is pretty dependant on what kind of season the local teams are having. “I noticed a small drop in business when the Pens got cut from the playoffs this year. Even when the teams are away, locals want to be out with their friends watching the game. Now the Bucs are doing well so we get people a lot crossing over the bridge after or before a Pirates game.” Mr. Simoline himself has season tickets to Steelers, Penguins and Pirates.
