Great Irish Pub – If you want an authentic Irish pub, then look no further. Great Guinness and the bartenders are classic -- good luck striking up a conversation with any of them, but that's to their credit because they are all about getting the job done. Love this place.
A secret REALLY old school bar – I found this place in the great book, Best Bars of New York, by Jef Klein and Cary Hazlegrove. It's an unobtrusive spot that almost resents your knowing about it.
The food system is one of the weirdest I've seen. On each table is a bar menu with standard appetizers: Potato Skins, calamari, chicken fingers and a few burgers. Under the menu is a phone number. Once you decide on your order, you call the number and a quarter of an hour later, the food arrives. A lot of bars have a book of near-by deliver menus, but this bar has the system build in! Ah well, it works.
Mike, the bar-tender has a wry sense of humor and the customers... wow! They make the place. We were there during some complete stranger's birthday party. Suddenly, we were IN the party. No tourists here. Just a wild collection of local characters: barstool philosophers, alkies, neighborhood locals, young partiers. I almost hate writing about it, because a tourist influx would spoil the place... but after all... it's in the book.
Dublin sign – I found myself what I think is an original bar sign. It says Dublin House on it. Then on the bottom. it has prop Tom Kelly with 1920 just above that. Just wondering if anyone knew who the founder was or some of the earlier owners were.
A welcoming Upper West Side institution with old-time distinction. – In Short
This generations-old, family-run bar has one of the most pleasant facades around--an elegant townhouse front with neon blinking "bar" and "tap room" signage above double doors. Inside the long, narrow old-style barroom, the original 1920s wood-grain veneer and round mirrors remain intact. The quieter back room is a good option for groups. Popular with the area's 30-plus crowd, Dublin House also attracts some younger residents with its warm mix of jukebox tunes and hearty pints.
A Real Bar – I was bought here by a freind oh no not another Pretentious NY bar ...But No I finally found a bar I felt comfortable in without having to look like a stiff , which I feel is the case for most NY bars.
Very freindly staff , and a good crowd .
Great Local Bar – Great prices, great service, good music .... what else does one need in an Irish Bar?
Great bar! – If Cheers were a real bar, it would be the Dublin House. Always friendly and inviting, it's a great place for a night or a weekend. It can be scary during the day, but at night it is a blast!
