    In celebration of Nightmare on Elm's Streets 35th anniversary we're treating PYP to a night of fright as we celebrate our October happy hour sponsored by Robert Morris University at the Nightmare on Forbes Street pop-up bar.

    Guests can expect signature cocktail like The Krueger, Satanico and the Pumpkin Head. Local artist, Jamie Apgar, watched hours of horror movies to gain inspiration while designing the space. 

    The local Halloween pop-up bar owned by MW Hospitality Group, will be raising funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh.

    Parking is available in the adjacent parking garage

    PYP will have the space reserved from 5:30-7:30, and then the event will be open to the public for the remainder of the evening. Come for happy hour specials and light bites.
