Thady Con's, named for the owner's uncle in County Cork, Ireland, is a salve for the nostalgic and an agreeable after-work destination. The bar draws exuberant singles as well as middle-aged neighborhood regulars. The small back room recreates a homey, turn-of-the-century Irish cottage with a few black pots in the fireplace, planked tables, and a highboy stocked with bric-à-brac. Those not interested in rustic life can retreat to the restaurant's main room, which has a long, accommodating bar, or head upstairs to the restaurant's enormous, low-key lounge. There's a dozen beers on tap, including Guinness, Harp, and Smithwicks, and a range of bottled offerings. The food is also several notches above ordinary pub fare. The Irish cocktail sausages are imported and the kitchen makes its own bread and Irish soda scones. The hamburger is reliably good. Traditionalists can indulge in a satisfying shepherd's pie, or chow down bangers and mash, fish and chips, or Dublin broil. Tuesday through Saturday evenings, usually after 9pm, the pub gets cracking with live pop and folk music (sometimes just a single, leather-lunged troubadour). Wednesdays are reserved for traditional Irish tunes and Saturdays for Irish-oriented pop music. On weekends the place gets rowdy but not unruly as the evening wears on.


Happy hour: Daily, 4pm-7:30pm

Tuesday through Saturday evenings, groups of 40-70 can rent the comfy, spacious upstairs lounge, which has two working fireplaces.
