First open to the public in the early 1900s, the Three Jolly Pigeons is a romantic combination of pub, saloon, and neighborhood institution.  That’s not to say there haven’t been some modern additions here and there—there’s a few digital distractions, like those new-fangled juke-boxes, touch-screen games, and flatscreens perched in the corners.  But the stained glass embedded in the partition (originally used to separate the men from the women-folk), the rich wood, the gothic molding, and the old-timers that have been coming here for decades all make the place so particular.  Named after an Irish pub, the music at The Three Jolly Pigeons tends to be safe, white-guy 70s rock, and although the Karaoke Fridays could conceivably feature any genre, the live bands on occasional Saturday evenings tend to revert to Aerosmith/Tom Petty/The Police.  There’s no happy hour—just cheap drinks—and maybe you won’t expand your musical palette, but there’s a decent amount of beer on tap, and the bar is just so darn adorable that it’s worth a visit.  Think of it as a field trip, if you must.
