The Fairmont Pittsburgh is a gracious blend of old and new. Inside this towering space—the only Gold LEED-certified hotel in Pittsburgh—is the chic Andys Wine Bar. Just in case you think we made an editing error and omitted the apostrophe, it’s intentional, since this bar pays homage to the city’s two favorite sons—Andy Warhol and Andrew Carnegie. Andys draws hotel guests and locals alike for its convivial atmosphere, prime location, and creative cocktails.
