“Not only is there always a bartender who will make you laugh in any circumstance, but it's just a comfortable place to be.”
“Where before there were widows with bars on them, now there is a huge window that opens up the front of the bar.”
“They have a bunch of TVs to watch your favorite game on and even a fish tank to keep you entertained if you don't like what's on the screens.”
“great place to meet new people or grab a few drinks with old friends.”
“There are always pleasant regulars as well as new faces, who become fixtures because of the friendly bartender.”
“You'll feel like you stepped back in time in this place--definitely a local's hang-out w/ cheap drinks and good people who all know each other and are loud and rowdy and fun!”
You'll find truth in advertising at the Upper West Side's humble hole-in-the-wall..
The management of this modest Irish pub may have changed over the years, but the decor and most of the clientele hasn't. A motley assortment of barflies, local codgers and low-key hipsters drink and mingle as the Cranberries or the Pogues play in the background. The heavy wooden furniture looks like it was stolen from a Catholic school, multiple TVs perpetually play sports, and in the back a lone dartboard hangs below a huge, model airplane. A snarling stuffed boar's head and a fish tank with actual live fish complete the scenery.
Habitués come for cheap drafts and laid-back conversation, although this isn't a good place to get picked up unless you want to flirt with men who look like your grandfather. In addition to alcohol, the bar sells a stunning assortment of Utz potato chips and T-shirts and thongs emblazoned with its name.
Neighborhood bar.. When I started going to this bar, I did not know anyone. Due to a busy schedule, I was only able to come in every few months, but amazingly the bartender remembered my name and drink preferences. Over the course of my visits I have gotten to know some of the regulars, and I see several of them each time I go in. This really is an old neighborhood bar with an incredible atmosphere. I highly recommend it.
