This warm, old-timey space has exposed brick walls, a pressed-tin ceiling and glass-windowed bar cabinets. The back room holds the bulk of the tables and hosts poetry readings every other Monday night. Wherever you sip your Guinness, it won’t be long before a relaxed, easy feeling kicks in—not necessarily booze-induced.

If you're looking for a chill neighborhood pub, this is the spot. The bartenders are friendly and will remember your name and drink after a few visits. The elegant tap is fantastic, with quality options to suit both mainstreamers and beer nerds. You can often find live tunes performed by local musicians, from string instruments to a plugged-in rock band. It's a popular spot for those in the music biz but also for longtime residents and, of course, younger folks on weekends. You can guarantee a packed crowd for certain soccer games, but on a regular night, you won't find the TVs playing a game to be oppressive or obnoxious.
