Featuring an interior that recently emigrated from the Emerald Isle, Dublin Square Irish Pub embodies a genuine Gaelic oasis with two full-service bars, cozy private tables, and a rich menu of traditional pub favorites. Appetizers include the Dublin hush puppies, where Guinness-battered corned beef and potatoes slip into a business-casual shoe of horseradish sauce to perform a lively Riverdance with other starters, such as the parmesan-crusted baked blue crab and brie. The Belfast fillet tips, rich with the flavors of garlic and plum sauce, perch atop a mound of jasmine rice and leeks, and the chicken Ramona—stuffed with spinach, herbs, and cream cheese—luxuriates in mustard cream. Much like a lavish garden wedding, turnips, celery, carrots, and onions revel in a rich sherry sauce within the golden brown crust of the Lanebourough shepherd's pie, officiated by succulent lamb. Nineteen craft beers lurk behind the two full-service bars, and a UN of wines resolve their petty differences with a hearty toast.
Owner and licensed massage therapist Juan Medina's commitment to comfort adds a personal touch to MiStar Massage, which he named after his daughters, Miya and Starla.

The private treatment room at MiStar exudes a vibrant personality, with bold crimson walls bedecked with a Spanish guitar, Russian nesting dolls, and other multicultural artwork. To personalize each treatment, Medina encourages guests to bring their own iPod or organ grinder monkey along to play their preferred music.

Professional shutterbug Jen Carlynn calls upon eight years of professional experience to capture love in bloom with two-hour engagement photo sessions and snaps shots of smiling duos during 30-minute in-studio shoots. During outdoor, on-location engagement shoots, Jen fosters a comfortable, welcoming environment for pre-newlyweds as they gaze adoringly into each other's eyes, hold hands, or finish each other's sneezes on film. Black-and-white photo shoots for couples celebrate paired-up patrons of all stripes, from young sweethearts to partners celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Parents may also partake in the in-studio shoot with a child, provided their progeny is older than the age of 12, can sit through a 30-minute session, and isn't a wooden puppet brought to life by energy drinks.
