    I will miss this place! Altar Bar got sold and the building will be used as a church once again. (BOOO!) I've worked tons of shows here and will never forget all the bands and this unique music venue.

    Love how they converted the church into a concert venue. The shows I have seen here have been awesome!

    This used to be my favorite venue, they totally clamped down with all kinds of rules now...walled off smoking section, no re entry, pat downs, I feel like I'm at stage ae!

    Used to be good back in the day. (05-07) Altar Bar was a church that has been transformed into a club. It used to be pretty cool. Good for Freshman and sophomore kids only.

    Always a good time here. Drinks are over-priced though

    Security doesn't molest you on your way in so you can bring your own alcohol

    Bring a flask. The drinks are way overpriced and under poured. I wished I would have brought pennies for a tip...learned my lesson.

    Horrible acoustics, crowded. There's better venues in Pittsburgh to showcase musicians.
