===By public transit===
Pittsburgh's light rail system, "The T", runs from downtown into the South Side. Immediately after crossing the Monongahela River, the 42 and 47 trolley both lines stop at Station Square. Right after that they , then proceed into a transit-only tunnel under Mount Washington, and come out at the South Hills Junction station on the other side before the 42 and 47 lines they split apart, with the 42 traveling through Beechview and the 47 through Overbrook before heading into the suburbs south of Pittsburgh. A less-frequent light rail line, the 52, travels from downtown across the river and onto Arlington Avenue, going through the small neighborhood of Allentown before terminating at the South Hills Junction.
Alternatively, you can take any of the 51 bus routes to get from downtown down Carson Street right into the heart of the South Side neighborhood. The 51A and 51C will take you from downtown past Station Square down Carson Street. The 54C will get you from South Side to other popular destinations such as [[Pittsburgh/East End-South|Oakland]].

There are so many bars and restaurants along '''Carson Street''' that if you attempted to have one drink in each—-people ''have'' attempted—-you would not make it nearly from one end to the other before requiring assistance.

A few major ones have been listed but walk the area and you're bound to find a spot that suits your fancy.
