I have found just one short description of Shawn's, and that comes from a late 70s newspaper article on Pittsburgh's gay community.
From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, September 27, 1979:
The only lesbian bar in Pittsburgh is Shawn's, at 1209 Fifth Ave. It is frequented by many lesbians, who drink, dance, socialize or play pool with each other. Men are not welcome.
A passing reference to Shawn's is found in a comment attached to a blog post about Anita Bryant. "Peg" recalled Bryant's visit to Pittsburgh, which was apparently in the spring of 1978:
Seems that nobody did.
Today Shawn's former space is occupied by Consol Energy Center and Palumbo Center.
