Well I'm including bar areas in restaurants as well, and in fact that would be my preference over just a bar. There are many in other cities downtowns that I can think of, especially DC, but maybe the restricted building heights there make it a lot easier to have a sunny restaurant/bar. see my reference to Fogo de Chao above as the best example I've found, even though it faces north, haha. If it were on a southwest corner it would be great for me! not just me though, I think most people would prefer it. Maybe I am unusual for having this preference, or people just don't think about it. but my guess is most people prefer natural lighted places even if just subconscious

Honestly, heavy drinking isn't good for your skin tone. The dark isn't a good idea.

IDK, I've seen a lot of girls with great skin tone on carson st who can't even walk straight. man that place is crazy. was there recently for first time in a while, and expected it to be toned down based on what I read about other hoods becoming more popular, and universities being out for the summer.. it was wilder than I've ever seen it, and that is saying something. I can't think of another street in the US so crazy, although never been to NO. once they hit their 30s their skin tone is going to be a much different situation I think

People obviously arenít living in Pittsburgh if they desire a lot of sunshine.

If it was a factor, there would be many bars/restaurants capitalizing on it.

Maybe. Seattle has plenty of them though.

If there was enough $$$$ to be made, it would be prioritized.

Seattle has 2.5x the population of Pittsburgh. Obviously more bars/restaurants.

The metro area is what matters though, not the city limits which are arbitrary. Seattle metro is a lot larger now, but its not 2x the size of Pittsburgh's metro. Although they obviously have a lot more money. Thinking about it, Baltimore does not have many of these either DT, if you leave out the inner harbor. so maybe Pittsburgh is not a complete oddball.

What’s the population of Seattle?

What’s the population of Pittsburgh?

It’s really simple. There’s more bars/restaurants so there’s going to be more sunny bars/restaurants.

Seattle metro is about 3.9 mil, Pgh metro about 2.35 mil. Its not really simple, there are plenty of restaurants/bars in DT Pgh but they almost all happen to be in places which do not get sun on a sunny day.. It is a statistical anomaly, but I'm wondering if its by chance or there is a good reason for it.

Ok, Lol

Most everything about owning a bar/restaurant revolves around making money. If it was a priority in Pittsburgh there would be many of them.
