An Irish pub on a block brimming with of Irish pubs (seriously, there are two directly across the street ), there’s nothing particularly surprising about Irish Exit. That said, the constantly changing drink specials are generously affordable for the neighborhood, and there’s a large dining room in the back with a full bill of Irish fare, including some notably creative heart-attack-inducing bar snacks like Potato Skins (with bacon and melted cheese) and “Techno Fries” (mozzarella, bacon, and, oh boy, Guinness- infused gravy).
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
