Beyond the popular “Irish Mile” pubs along Western Avenue is this Beverly rarity, featuring a sleek, backlit bar and hand-drawn martini menu. Stake claim to the ringed couches, or take a seat at the bar to chat up friendly bartenders who can help you pick your poison (try the Key Lime Pie and Swedish Fish martinis). Lest you forget which neighborhood you’re in, there’s plenty of sports on TV and prayer requests are accepted via the bar’s website. Free food on game days supplements a $20 all-you-can-drink beer deal.
