Why locals love it
Although just a short walk from Temple Bar, locals love this place because it's tourist free. Great live music and lots of beer on draft, and open almost every night. You'll be sure to meet some interesting and friendly people and check their Facebook for events because the place often holds club nights past 11pm.
Why you should visit it
You can expect a huge covered and heated outdoor smoking area upstairs. Three bars, one downstairs, one in the loft and one in the smoking area. It's best to head here from Thursday to Saturday, but if you are looking for a quite drink earlier in the week it's still a great spot.
