Puck Fair

Although there are 25 different beers on tap and 60 by the bottle at this airy trilevel pub, Guinness is the star: Thanks to the pricey Kilkenny cooling system, the black stuff tastes almost as good as it does on the Emerald Isle. Gaggles of Irish and other Euro expats take their pints at the enormous bar or small wooden tables. Retreat to the slightly quieter downstairs to tuck into pub grub like bangers and mash (available until 4am) in peace.

They have a large craft beer selection, are almost always bustling with a lively crowd, and have a selection of traditional pub fare. The bar is narrow and you will have to squeeze or push by, but it's generally not an issue, and everyone knows to either move out of the way or accept it. The restrooms, and overall cleanliness is at times questionable, but this may just be due to the high volume of traffic. The wait staff is kind enough, but it is easy to get ignored. Overall, I've tried to enjoy the place, but it's not for me, if you really want a traditional Irish pub, maybe come here, or maybe not.
