If you spent a lot of time sipping on Old Style at the former Cork Lounge, you’ll think this rehabbed version retains few vestiges of its former self. More natural light, hi-def TVs replacing touch-screen video games, a long mahogany bar, a slate pool table and more than a dozen taps mixing in Guinness and Hennepin with standards—looks as if the neighborhood-tavern ante’s been upped.
