Foursquare Tips

  • It smells like a sewer.
  • St. Patty's Day is just around the corner, so expect higher traffic at "Irish" places as green beer flows and partying commences.
  • Drunken Irish fun all year round. Wait in line to climb the narrow wooden staircase to the top floor where popular Irish drinking songs have people singing, clapping and stomping their feet.
  • Girls with asses like mine don't talk to guys with faces like yours....sorry for partyinggggg
  • Lou is bartending the days on Friday.. He won War of the Pour this year.. He's a bad ass
  • If it is super crowded, the back patio is a nice spot to get some fresh air and relax.
  • Nice bar, is always crowded. If you hate crowds, not the spot to go to.
  • Best. Bar. Ever.

  • Don't throw bottles!

  • A must hit on your pub crawl
  • Have a blast here every St. Patrick's Day!
  • Main floor dance floor was packed. Rooftop packed. Always a good time here!!
