When you've had your fill of hipster groove, this place is a welcome respite. A classy, traditional Irish pub, the Guinness is heady and the food is hearty. In fact, the food is a far cry above the usual pub eats. Known as a writer's hang-out, it's a comfortable spot for a pint of ale and a hearty plate of bangers and mash.
