Despite its name, an Irish pub this ain't. Emblematic of the current vogue for neo-lounge bars, it attracts the nouveau-riche, mobile-phone-wielding, martini-clinking crowd, as well as grown-up rockers and junior foodies. The atmosphere is serene, and the food a little classier than your usual pub grub (lobster bisque, artichoke pizza).
