Why locals love it

Why you should visit it
This bar tends to attract a bit of an older crowd than other local dives - which attract the younger, college crowd - so you know you can enjoy your beer without interruption. The rustic feel (no TVs here, just music) gives this place a laid-back vibe on most days, while weekends tend to be livelier.
Go on Tuesday nights for live traditional Irish music.
