Just a few steps from the N train, a green shamrock protrudes out onto the sidewalk announcing this vaguely Irish pub. The bar's dimly lit interior is lined with flatscreen TVs tuned to assorted sporting events, but the real draw is in the back—that’s where you’ll find a large, airy enclosed patio, with retractable roof for year-round boozing. There's plenty of seating for casual outdoor dinners and drinks (the kitchen is open until 3 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays), as well as open space for weekend raucousness. There’s live music on a semi-regular basis and, a D.J. on Saturdays and karaoke on Fridays.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
