• Tequila Cowboy Brings Southern Charm to Pittsburgh


    FROM THE Fall 2017 ISSUE

Since opening on Pittsburgh’s North Shore in September 2016, Tequila Cowboy has been packed every weekend with people enjoying good music and a good time. The 20,000-square-foot Nashville-inspired venue can be your group’s very own hot spot day or night featuring three themed areas, each with its own musical styling. As many as 1,000 guests can kick up their boots with a full buyout, and groups of all sizes can find a space to suit their tastes. “People always say that this place just keeps going and going,” says Event Coordinator Brittney Mikus. 

Little Red Corvette is an ’80s and ’90s throwback room with a gleaming cross section of its namesake mounted on the wall. Garage doors open to a patio bar that can host 30-60 guests, bringing the total capacity of the space to 120. Wanna B’s karaoke bar welcomes groups of 60-100 for receptions, meetings and presentations. It’s also a great space for team-building activities like the Build Your Own BBQ Sauce Challenge and the Flatbread Faceoff. Tequila Cowboy’s main floor turns up the honky-tonk and can host more than 500 guests. The semiprivate Tequila Bar is an ideal VIP lounge for 40-50 people, with prime views of the main stage and mechanical bull

While the size of the venue is vast, Tequila Cowboy’s creativity is also endless. There are customized menus, signature cocktails, live music, DJs, line dancing lessons, T-shirt guns, three video walls and dozens of brandable television screens. “With the pure amount of space that we have, I haven’t found anything so far that we can’t do,” says Mikus. 

The 37th edition of the IACC Americas Connect conference took place on April 16-18 at Chubb Hotel & Conference Center and The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. The three-day conference, hosted by former White House Director of Events Laura Schwartz, included educational sessions, panel discussions in the form of campfires, workshops, culinary tours and tastings, as well as the annual Global Copper Skillet competition.
