Playful New Cocktails to Drink at Pittsburgh’s Smallman Galley

Smallman Galley, located in Pittsburgh’s revitalized Strip District, is a restaurant, full bar and coffee bar housed in a 6,000-square foot historical space.  The concept for Smallman Galley was envisioned at sea by two U.S. Navy Lieutenants, who experienced grand food halls by traveling the world.

Super creative menu themes and packaging are a staple of Smallman’s beverage program.  Now, the bar has a recently launched cocktail menu that explores “flashback flavors,” along with Twister boards – with actual spinners – on communal tables, an example of their dedication to nostalgic fun.


Tim Garso, who manages the bar program, had this to say about the new menu: “The hook for this menu is flavors and themes reminiscent of younger years. So be it Froot Loops with cartoons on a Saturday morning in your PJs, or when you discovered curry in college freshman year, or all night computer game sessions with pizza rolls and Mt. Dew, these flavors will take you back, and what better way to look back then through an old-school viewfinder”

Here, a sampling of Smallman’s playful new “flashback” cocktail menu:
