On North Side, plans for city’s first music listening room

By Diana Nelson Jones, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Among the many cool happenings in and around Nova Place — the old Allegheny Center Mall — a budding entity called The Bridge Music Hall aspires to find a niche.

The Bridge so far is a group of musicians, music lovers, business people and community activists who are planning a music scene the likes of which Pittsburgh hasn’t had for some time, if it ever did. If it comes off as expected next summer, The Bridge will be a 240-seat cabaret-style listening room nestled somewhere in the increasingly vibrant mixed-use village on the North Side.
