"I would go to a bar like this, yeah,” Saoirse Ronan told us with a smile during her photo shoot at Alphabet City’s charmingly divey Ace Bar. The Academy Award-nominated Brooklyn star made her way around the pool table and darts boards like an after-work regular. Ronan recently put down roots in NYC, securing an apartment in the West Village. She’ll make her Broadway debut in April with Ivo van Hove’s The Crucible. Playful and carefree, Ronan seemed to be enjoying the moment. Don’t be surprised if you see her in the coming months at Ace Bar hogging the cue stick for her big break.
