New Amsterdam is the latest addition to Lawrenceville's burgeoning nightlife scene. Housed in the former space of AJ's Tavern, Amsterdam seems to be a great fit with the neighborhood, going with warm red walls covered with local art. For how small the building is, the place is spacious. The bar is along the right side of the room, with the rest being left wide open. Tables are scattered around that can be pushed out of the way to make room for different types of events, and the glass block wall that used to take up the whole front of the building has been replaced with a huge garage door that will open during warmer weather. That's not the only open air that the Amsterdam will have. There are also plans for a rooftop deck as well, which will surely plant this place firmly onto Pittsburgh's bar destination map during warmer weather.
