​Thank you for your interest in hosting a private party at The Pines Tavern.  Since 1914, The Pines Tavern has been located on Bakerstown  Road.  The Pines was originally the gathering place for the workers of the three great estates of Pittsburgh’s industrial captains, Pittsburgh Mayor Babcock, Oil and Natural Gas Baron Joseph Trees (Treesdale) and Eden Hall home of Sebastian Mueller and his wife Sarah Heinz.    Today The Pines is known for its commitment to serving local, seasonal and sustainable foods.  Our cuisine is prepared from only the freshest ingredients from our own farm, local sustainable farms and vendors we trust.  Our wines are carefully selected from the top vineyards.  Each event is personally planned with the guest in mind.    Give us a call, we will be happy to work with you to create your memorable event.



Planning Your Event:


A private room fee guarantees your room reservation and the room will be dedicated to your guests only.  It also provides for the set up and tear down time for your party, furniture moving, and time for you to decorate, place flowers, cakes, cookies, AV equipment, and any preparations by you or our staff to meet your guests’ needs.
