Bartending Blog

I am really not personally a country western sports bar type of girl, but I know many in Steelers country that are. If you are one of those people that are into the country western bar scene or just really thirsty for a great drink, head down to the Double S Saloon on Evans Avenue across from McKeesport Hospital in downtown McKeesport.

There you will find two of the finest Elite Bartending School graduates; Melissa and Jennifer.Melissa has a full time position in McKeesport during the day and heads to the Double S Saloon to work the night bartender’s position.

Jennifer works weekends during the busy sports season as a bartender for the Double S and loves every minute of it. The Double S Saloon has a full service kitchen that is open during the lunch and dinner hours to sit, drink, eat and be merry while watching your favorite baseball, football or hockey sports game on six huge HD TV’s or if you are just into soaking up great country western astrosphere mossy on down.

For you non-smokers, just to let you know, the Double S Saloon is a smoke free bar. The Double S Saloon has a few really great pool tables to try out. Now that would get me down there to drink a few cold yuengling drafts with Melissa and Jennifer and to play a little pool, beware, I play really well.

It is always nice to have one graduate from Elite Bartending School in an establishment, but Elite Bartending School has two bartenders working at the Double S Saloon in McKeesport, just goes to show how Elite Bartending School is producing great employable bartenders.
