Clarke's - Alys Tomlinson
An authentic Irish pub located in the swank South of Fifth (aka SoFi) area might seem like a mismatch, but it's not. The rich wood bar and warm interior separates Clarke's from the other, more down-at-heel Irish bars in the area. The food here rocks too, with everything from shepherd's pie to bangers and mash via fabulous, juicy burgers, succulent Maine scallops, and our personal fave, a big, salty New York-style pretzel with a side of mustard. Whatever you eat, it'll wash down nicely with a pint of Guinness - on draft, of course.
