This cool, rooftop bar comes without the sweat-inducing price tag. Sip on a top-shelf drink while spotting some landmarks across the city. Happily enough, the bar is adjacent to the stadium and many of the hotels near Consol Energy Center.

Giovanni's Pizza

Spinning dough for over three decades, Giovanni's knows a thing or two about getting that crust right. The family-owned Italian restaurant gives a big appetite a run for its money with generous portions of pizza, calzone and hoagies. Open until 1am most nights.

Reflect Restaurant

This casual bistro is based in Cambria Suites hotel, a few minutes' walk from the stadium. Grab a quick bite before the game like a club sandwich with fries or a classic Caesar salad.

The Carlton

If it's something a bit classy you're after, flex the credit card at this award-winning restaurant. Over 550 selections fuel the wine list which includes many top vintages worthy of a headache the next morning. The menu changes daily but sample offerings are the tender barbecue-glazed shrimp over crisp tortillas and guacamole.
