From Steel To Stethoscopes: Nied’s Third Shift Bar Patrons Change With The City

From NPR Pittsburgh:

Jim Nied, owner of Nied’s Hotel, makes breakfast for his early-morning patrons on Friday, Dec. 9, 2016. Nied, an Air Force veteran, says he’s changed little about the bar restaurant since he took over in the 1970s, including when it opens. CREDIT KATIE BLACKLEY / 90.5 WESA

Nied’s Hotel in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood is one of a handful of bars where workers who clock out while most hit the alarm clock can still meet for coffee or a beer. Taverns that cater to third-shift workers aren’t a new concept to Pittsburgh, but over the years, their clientele has evolved.

Owner Jim Nied, 65, said he remembers when the men on the bar stool were blue collar laborers employed by the many nearby industrial plants.

“The mills were big business for us,” Nied said. “They were all going three shifts. My dad used to have a lunch hour at four in the morning.”
