Here's a shot of the neon sign for Kelly's Bar after renovation. This is one of the best signs in Pittsburgh and the food here is as good as advertised. The interior of Kelly's is classic art deco as well, with the original 40's deco bar and bar back. They have a cool little tiki patio in the rear. Very original looking. Great Juke box too!
