The Liberties is a contemporary Irish pub that feels much more modern than your typical Irish pub, but in the best kind of way. The walls are sage green and there’s a long leather, chocolate brown banquette that runs the length of the bar, along with tufted black leather chairs and chestnut wooden tables. Liberties has a superb happy hour, every weekday from 4 to 7pm, with deals on pitchers, margaritas, fries, pizza and quesadillas. The menu at the Liberties is quite complex, with a mixture of the aforementioned bar food along with a variety of grown up bar bites like scotch eggs that come in a nest of arugula, hickory bacon and fontina croquettes or cumberland sausages with mashed potatoes, grilled onions and pan gravy. Brunch lovers should note that The Liberties hosts a popular weekend brunch from 10am to 2:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. There are killer spicy bloody Marys with all the fixings, buckets of mimosas with fresh-squeezed orange juice and lots of hangover-curing egg dishes like a breakfast pizza with bacon and marinated tomatoes, a jam-packed breakfast burrito with chorizo, ranchero sauce, black beans and avocado, and an amazing traditional Irish breakfast with baked beans, home fries and black and white pudding.
