Con Alma Closes Shadyside Location

Ellsworth Avenue just became a little quieter. Restaurant and jazz bar Con Alma recently announced the ceasing of all normal operations at its Shadyside location.

The sounds of jazz will still be heard floating from business occasionally, however, as the space will still be open for special music events. Details concerning these happenings can be found on Con Alma’s social media pages and website.

The last day for regular business hours was July 29 with local performance group John Shannon Trio. Since then, the Shadyside location has already hosted a listening event with trumpeter and composer John D’Earth.

These changes will have no effect on the ongoings at Con Alma’s Downtown location, which opened in 2020, a year after the Ellsworth Avenue space debuted. Food — with a menu led by Chef Josh Ross — jazz, and cocktails will continue to flow aplenty seven days a week. Cuban fare, and plentiful vegan options, are hallmarks of the Con Alma menu.
