the bt mission
Where your friends gather to eat, drink and be family.
the bt vision
As Mount Washington’s local watering hole, we continue to provide way more than just drinks, stellar food, and great conversation—we pride ourselves on being the welcoming extension of home that people yearn for in their neighborhood bar. To our community, we’re their place to unwind, sit back, and enjoy the times. We aim to consistently serve up top-notch grub and drinks, a tradition that has taken place in this location for over a century. We welcome all families, neighbors, and friends alike to come hang, chow down on some of our award-winning fare, throw back a cold one, and watch a game. We’ve got a drink for every bother and, with over 30 flavor options, you're sure to find a favorite for the crowned "Best Wings" in town. We invite you to come find out why the locals say "Go Bigham or Go Home" today!

321 Bigham Street was built.
Several restaurants came and went, the most important part of which is that they left to make room for something much bigger and better—us!
Co-founders Amelia and Jess met at their job as event coordinators at a downtown hotel and became fast friends.
Amelia and Jess decide they want to do something bigger with their lives, like open a small coffee shop together perhaps?
Then they realized there were even bigger things in store for us while looking at property in our neighborhood (Mt. Washington, of course). When we ran into our friend Terry standing outside this giant building on a corner lot and he told us the building was on the market, we said what the hell and jumped in feet first.
LATER IN 2010
Amelia and Jess and their now husbands joined as business partners and shortly there after, we opened our doors—as, once again, Bigham Tavern.
In less than 2 years, we were voted the best Wing Night in the city by Pittsburgh Magazine and Best Wings by the Pittsburgh City Paper!
2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
We’ve continued to slay. Each year, without fail, we’ve received awards for our wings, happy hour, burgers, and even the title of “best bar for lingering” (whatever that means…?)
