The square bar and staff’s logo-embroidered shirts might make you think you’ve entered some sort of local version of Houlihan’s. But the quality pour and, better yet, price of a Guinness pint, $6, ensures that the place has its priorities straight. (For some reason, though, everyone seems to drink Amstel Light.) The bar is flanked by a dining area and a quiet room with a fireplace where you can try to escape such inexplicable entertainment as hits by Kenny Rogers on the sound system. On Tuesday nights, sliders are just $2 and pints $4, while Friday and Saturday nights are reserved for live music beginning at 11 p.m.Kitchen Hours

Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
