The local Irish-pub minichain—first opened in Inwood in 1969—took over the old Patrick Kavanagh's space for its fifth location. Owned by Ireland natives John Mahon and Ken McCoy, the spot dishes out Celtic staples like shepherd's pie, bangers and mash, and fish-and-chips, along with requisite pub grub such as buffalo wings and potato skins. Craft brews on tap include Blue Point Toasted Lager, Brooklyn IPA and the chain's own Pig 'n' Whistle Ale. The wood-laden watering hole—decked out with antique mirrors, stained glass and waist-high swinging doors—hosts karaoke on Mondays and traditional Irish music on Sunday nights.
