Empire on Liberty is conveniently located at the intersection of Bloomfield and Lawrenceville, minutes from Downtown and several universities, and in the center of several world class medical facilities including West Penn Hospital, UPMC Shadyside Hospital, Children’s Hospital and the Hillman Cancer Center.
The colorful mix of shops and restaurants along Liberty Avenue and Butler Street attract thousands of visitors from across the Pittsburgh region.
The business district along Liberty Avenue, as well as its many quaint side streets, has emerged as a top-notch dining destination for both city dwellers and residents of the region. And unlike many Pittsburgh neighborhoods, food and drink can be come by at all hours, from classic diner breakfasts served ’round the clock and easy-on-the-wallet lunch buffets, to outdoor dining and late-night tapas.
Boasting authentic eats from all around Europe and Asia — as well as nouveau American fare and hometown culinary favorites — Bloomfield has earned and surpassed its status as Pittsburgh’s Little Italy.
On the side streets of Bloomfield, tree-lined avenues complement lovely, restored Edwardian and Victorian homes built in the late 1800s. The Bloomfield Bridge, which was built in 1914, links the community to Oakland, with its medical complex, universities and cultural centers.
The Butler Street business district in Lawrenceville has become a regional destination – boasting a single screen movie theatre, pinball café, and bowling alley all within two blocks. Forbes magazine dubbed Lawrenceville The Brooklyn of Pittsburgh due to its cultural amenities, creative residents, and vibrant food scene.
