“The Abbey on Butler Street” is a new food, beverage and entertainment venue for the Lawrenceville and greater Pittsburgh communities. Led by owners Eric Kukura, Christopher McAleer, and Loughery Roberts, the project has renovated a property that has been a church hall, brass forge and funeral home – into a visually inviting and comfortable space for its coffee-house, restaurant, and entertainment lounge. “The Abbey” also features an expansive patio for those guests who enjoy an “outdoor” experience. A fire place, distinctive water fountain, gated wrought iron fence with great landscaping offer guests a unique & beautiful place under the sun or stars!
Coffee-goers will find a vaulted ceiling, great natural light and a carved-stone fireplace in a quieter room, where they might also enjoy Taboo doughnuts and lighter menu items. Chef Thomas Christakos will host guests in his restaurant & wine bar, offering cuisine that is fresh, hand-crafted, and infused with layers of flavor. Feel like a little Jazz and your favorite wine or spirits? The lounge in “The Abbey” will offer guests a great destination to round out the evening, and will also feature signature small plates offered by Chef Christakos, as well as a great selection of craft beers and cocktails.
“The Abbey on Butler Street” is located at 4635 Butler Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15201.
A full opening is currently targeted for March 2016.
