Very packed--downstairs had live music upstairs is a night club atmosphere. I went for Irish music and got stuck with dance music upstairs. Food was really good and authentic. Prices were the same as every other Irish pub--$14 for fish and chips, etc.

This bar was joining in the festivities on New Years Eve. There was no cover (at least when we got there) and they were handing out party favors which was a cute touch. The place states or not that full but as the night went...More
