Located in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh, the Allegheny HYP (Harvard Yale Princeton) Club is a hidden gem showcasing the rich history of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas.

The building itself was built in 1894, but didn’t become the home of the Allegheny HYP Club until 1929 when club members made a strong effort to make the beautiful location on William Penn Place their headquarters. The Club is registered as a National Historic Landmark and is the last remaining tenement housing structure from the 1890s in the area.

If you enjoy history, this is the place for you. Walking through the courtyard and entering the front door, you can almost feel the presence of the club’s predecessors. Black and white football roster photos of Ivy League schools of yesteryear cover the barroom wall along side an impressive fully-stocked bar. The names of famous alumni, club presidents and those U.S. Presidents who attended Harvard, Yale or Princeton are engraved into the walls coinciding with their school and graduation year. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind place.

The Club hosts many great events such as beer tastings, scotch tastings, music, lectures, etc. All events are very reasonably priced for the amount of entertainment, ambiance, gourmet food, and top-notch drinks the Club offers. Executive Chef, Shawn Slater, heads the dedicated kitchen staff and always creates innovative and delicious meals for events.
