The Adrian in Oakland (Lobos Management) is conveniently located between
two major throughways: Centre Avenue and Fifth Avenue. This prime location
offers quick access to public transit and to the many cultural attractions
available in Oakland.
Just a few blocks from The Adrian are the lively campuses of Pittsburgh’s two
largest universities: the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon
University. Both offer immediate access to countless cultural events: concerts,
museums, and playhouses, most of which are open to the general public.
The Carnegie Museum of Natural History houses an outstanding collection of
ancient relics including dinosaurs, insects, fossils, gems and rare botanical
samples. The Carnegie Museum of Art – a world class institution – is a
stone’s throw from the front doors of The Adrian. Pitt’s Peterson Events
Center, in addition to serving as home to the University’s basketball team,
hosts many large musical events including (in recent years) Bob Dylan, Elvis
Costello, and Neil Young. The Events Center is also the site of the Ringling
Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice, and Champions on
Ice – some great family-friendly activities.
Oakland is also home to some of the city’s most exciting dining and nightlife.
Dining options range from traditional pub fare at student favorites like Joe
Mama’s or Fuel and Fuddle to the more exotic Middle Eastern flavors of Ali
Baba on South Craig Street. Also located on Craig Street is Tamarind,
heralded by urbanspoon.com as “the best Indian food in Pittsburgh.” The
vibrant nightlife in Oakland runs along several blocks of Forbes Avenue which
is studded with many unique options for gathering with friends and
family. Hemingway’s Café – a favorite for many Oakland residents – was
recently voted the Best College Bar in Pittsburgh by the City Paper and
23rd Best College Bar in the entire country.
In addition to the many dining options, Oakland also offers access to shopping
and services: specialty grocers, record stores, book shops, clothing
stores…nearly anything a person could need.
This Lobos Management property offers the best of the city, and it’s all just
blocks from The Adrian.
