An Old Style sign in front? That's a good omen. Mix that in with a bartender who not only seems to know the regulars but also knows their drinks, and you've got a level of comfort and goodwill that makes for an excellent outing. A nod to the Irish name comes in the form of green walls and a neon shamrock, and that's it. Still, we'll take hospitality over exaggerated brogues any day.
