Modest specials draw a local, mid-age crowd who couldn’t care less about the routine décor (wood paneling, wall fans, Grandma’s stained-glass lamps), and that overwhelming toilet smell at this midtown Irish pub. Sports and news programs drone in the background on nine flat-screens, and a small dining area offers up overpriced burgers and chicken sandwiches. A modern jukebox offers a little entertainment, although the bar’s lone-wolf customers tend to be more interested in what’s at the bottom of their mugs. For their part, the staff is less than enthused about serving patrons prone to getting booted out of the bar at 6pm.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
