Chateau is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's north city area. It has a zip code of 15233, and has representation on Pittsburgh City Council by the council member for District 6 (North Shore/Downtown Neighborhoods).[2] It is on the banks of the Ohio River and is separated from the neighborhood of Manchester by PA Route 65.

As of the 2000 U.S. Census, Chateau has a population of 39. A 2006 investigation by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette found the neighborhood virtually uninhabited.[3] This may be because the neighborhood mostly consists of warehouses and places of business along the Ohio River.

In August 2009, the Rivers Casino opened along the Ohio River in the Chateau neighborhood. The Carnegie Science Center and the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild are also located in Chateau.
