Carlow East is a standard food-and frill-free Irish bar a few blocks off the Upper East Side's well-beaten path. It rests on the time-tested standards of pub-dom (continuous ESPN, a well-groomed pool table, a jukebox stocked with eighties rock) while avoiding unnecessary flourishes like hardwood floors, table service, or a discernible design motif. Not quite an endearing neighborhood relic, it’s more a modest, blank-slate bar with a heavily male, blue-collar crowd.
