Many a lively Irish seisiún has encouraged dancing on the worn wooden floors in this dark and cozy bar, where people often find themselves putting down their phones to join in the fun. With 22 beers on draft and a food selection that includes classics like Guinness Beef Stew alongside fare like Irish Curry or Tater Tots smothered in pulled pork, good food and “craic”—Irish for good times—are always on offer.
