Lorelei is a true East Liberty gem. From the European-inspired beer to the natural light and greenery, everything about this newly opened cocktail bar/beer hall is just stunning!
When you walk through the front doors, you’ll first find yourself in the cocktail & wine bar. If you’re in the mood to sip on a fancy mixed drink, grab a table or take a seat at the bar. Lorelei’s signature drinks are truly unique and unlike anything you’ve experienced in Pittsburgh. I would definitely recommend the Friesling. (AKA frozen riesling) It’s a fun twist on Frozé and it’s light, refreshing, and absolutely delicious. If you’re really feeling adventurous, give the Bear’s Knees a go. Yes, egg white in a drink sounds super weird, but it’s oddly good!
If you’re more in the mood to sip on a beer, head back through the hallway, past the kitchen, and into the beer hall. Here you’ll find a beautiful open space with communal tables, a colorful mural, and of course a large bar with 14 different drafts. If you’re looking for something a little different, they also have a draft gin & tonic as well as a couple of cider options. Tip: Ask about Kolsch service at the bar! (It’s a pretty neat concept.)
To round out the experience, Lorelei also offers some light bites like breads + spreads, pies + tarts, salads, and desserts. In my opinion, you really can’t leave Lorelei without tasting the Pretzel. And if you’re craving something sweet, the Malted Chocolate Mousse is heaven in a cup. Treat yo’ self!
Lorelei is great for just a few people or a bigger group. There’s tons of seating. Luckily, Lorelei is also right next to some other really great restaurants if you’re looking to stop in for pre or post-dinner drinks.
