A dark-wood bar and furnishings, milky glass lights, and French windows that open to the street make this airy spot one of the city's handsomer Irish pubs, even as it retains a tinge of seediness. While the staff boasts a strong Celtic heritage, the customers hail from all over the map: Some talk of artwork in progress; others cheer for the home team (wherever they may be from) on the rear projection screen. Lively groups of men and women often congregate in large banquettes in back, downing Black Velvets and jamming out to U2 on the jukebox, as well as to DJs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Dart players have five boards from which to choose and compete in league tournaments every week.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
