Open since 1974 and housed in a turn-of-the-century townhouse that once belonged to actress Maud Adams, this Irish pub attracts a banker/lawyer crowd at lunch and for early happy hour. The dinner menu includes classics like chicken pot pie. Private event space is available upstairs and downstairs; corporate parties are a common occurrence.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
