Love it here! It's nice, dark, and cozy inside with a fireplace. They have a pool table in the back and people aren't scummy about the rules and play a good game. Many different types of whiskey available and a good selection of bottled beers. It's a relaxing bar, not like one of those other Murray Hill joints around the area (Bar XII, Joshua Tree, etc.)

This is the place

Don't know that I had a typical experience here, but the ambience was terrific, even though the power was out and I couldn't get a Guinness. I made do with Jameson and had a nice chat with the Irish tourist seated next to me and with his friend the barman, himself an Irish immigrant. Just a great memory of the last night of my first trip to New York City and one I wouldn't mind repeating. As with any Irish pub, I suppose I'd take a date only if it was a steady girlfriend, not a lass I was trying to impress.

Lily Flanigan's in Rockville Center is a waste of time compared to this place. So get off pooper and come to the city you lazy bastards!!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
