The Dead Horse Cantina & Music Hall offers the "BEST" in LIVE MUSIC, FOOD, and DRINK!  This is the place where three worlds collide...FOOD, DRINK and MUSIC.  Restaurant by day...music club by night, serving your favorite drinks all the time! 

The concept of The Dead Horse Cantina & Music Hall came with our love and passion for music and food.  We've developed our concept for YOU...the fan AND the band!  They told us we were crazy, they told us no one would care, they told us we were just beating a DEAD HORSE...maybe they were right, but we're to crazy to care.

The concept of our "Music Hall" came to years of playing in bands around town in places that offered sound on a stick or no sound system at all.  Worse were the places that had great sound, lights and staging that CHARGED the bands to use and then GOUGED the fans with overpriced drinks, shoddy food or worse, who came out to support them.  We designed our stage to offer enough room for a marching band (ok, THAT might be a bit of an exaggeration), we have enough stage monitors that could be used as a sound system in some other places in Pittsburgh, our front of house sound has enough wattage to knock down a brick wall (yeah that DID happen) and our digital soundboard is second to none.  And we NEVER charge for sound or lights to our local musicians!

 THIS is the hottest spot for your after show or partying on weekend nights!  FOOD and DRINK SPECIALS NIGHTLY!!
