    Night Life



    Boasting acclaimed DJ sets and live performances, Perlé is the perfect downtown destination.  Enjoy evening refreshments or savour exquisitely prepared tápas over a relaxed chat with friends.




    Once the lights go down, say goodbye to long-lines or waits at the door and kick-off nighttime excitement by adding a sophisticated edge to your evening with private bottle service – the upper echelon where you can see and be seen from the only exclusive VIP lounge in the house.  Expedite the fun with a dedicated wait staff, and create personalized cocktails with your own private supply of hand-picked alcohol and mixers.




    VIP reservations are taken a maximum of two weeks in advance, as we often have private buy-out rentals of the entire Perlé facility.


    VIP reservations are extremely limited and are taken contingent upon bottle service.


    VIP Bottle service pricing starts at $150 per bottle, with one bottle purchased for every 5 guests.


     Please email for VIP Reservations and availability inquiries


    If you are looking to host a private event wherein our facility would be closed to the public, our banquet coordinator will be happy to assist you, although for private buy-out rentals, a minimum of a two week advance notice is required.


    Visit out our Corporate & Private Event page for all private parties.


    Perlé offers private groups multiple types of Food & Beverage Banquet options, including unique Champagne and Entertainment Packages to be hosted any time of the day, any day of the week.


    No matter how large or small, bring your event ideas to Perlé, and let us transform them into reality. From menu planning to décor, flowers to entertainment, parking to music – we will transform your function into a cherished memory. Overlooking the gorgeous treetop views of historic Market Square, the event space at Perlé can accommodate large corporate functions or intimate holiday gatherings with ease, and the welcoming balcony and lounge offer the perfect ambiance for mingling and merriment.

Yves Carreau

 Restaurateur Yves Carreau, owner and proprietor of the Big Y Group, hails from Lyon, France, where he attended and graduated from the highly acclaimed Thonon Les Bains Culinary Institute in 1978. Yves took his apprenticeship in the French West Indies, known for vibrant Caribbean cooking with a strong French influence. Ever the adventurer, Yves came to the United States and established himself in Los Angeles, California, where he worked at the famed “La Serre” restaurant in Studio City.


In 1984, Yves moved to Pittsburgh and was hired to manage the kitchen at the Churchill Valley Country Club. A few years later, he opened his first solo venture, Asiago, a French and Italian restaurant, located in One Oxford Centre downtown.


Today, Yves brings his diverse culinary palate and business savvy to the Pittsburgh and Baltimore restaurant scenes with all of his Big Y Group restaurants. Following the immense critical success of his flagship restaurant Sonoma (a west coast kitchen and wine bar) and its Penn Avenue sister Seviche, he took Seviche’s Nuevo Latino tapas concept east to debut Talara in Baltimore’s bustling inner harbor. Yves opened New Orleans jazz brasserie Nola On The Square in March 2011, and shortly punctuated his Market Square presence with the premiere of Pittsburgh’s sexiest new bar and champagne lounge, Perlé, in the summer of 2012.


After the evident success of Sonoma and Seviche, Yves was named 2007 Restaurateur of the Year by the Western Chapter of the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association. Yves also received the Wilmer S. Lapp Keystone Award in 2012.


Yves was honored as a 2015 recipient for the Downtown Experience Award by the Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corporation. The Downtown Experience Awards is the night for corporate, elected, entrepreneurial and community leaders to celebrate their collective efforts in creating the dynamic rebirth of Downtown.
