Kelly's is a fun place located on the Penn Circle in the rapidly revitalizing area of East Liberty near Shadyside. Go through the port-holed door and enter a bar that's like a 50s diner meets dive bar, but with good results.
Beer selection focuses on quality, with 12 taps that rotate frequently and no macros. You can always find East End beers on tap, and usually more than one. Bottle selection again focuses on quality, not a lot, but its mostly all good.
Apparently most of the service staff was turned over several months ago. The current staff in my experience has been friendly and attentive.
The clientèle is a mix of hipster, punk rock, and yuppie, with an eclectic selection of music being played (you're equally likely to hear The Smiths, Stevie Wonder, The Carter Family, or Slayer). Its a fun vibe but I usually end up feeling old and unhip. It can also get loud and smoky at times, so be warned. If I were 10 years younger and single, Id probably hang out here all the time. Evenso, its still a fun place to stop by for some great beer and atmosphere.
