Named after an ill-fated County Mayo native who boarded the Titanic en route to America, Peggy O'Neills carries on its namesake's quest to intermingle Irish and American cultures. Nestled in the wood-paneled pub, guests can nurse pints of Guinness amid Celtic-style filigree, vintage irish posters, and old-timey tankards lining the walls. An eclectic menu of pub fare spans the globe with hand-pressed burgers, cuban sandwiches, and fish tacos. Spirits make their way into many of the dishes, including bangers and mash and shepherd's pie—both flavored with Guinness stout—as well as Southern Comfort pork loin and Feckin steak infused with irish whiskey. Drinks speak for themselves at the full bar, where bartenders mix up Mama O'Neill’s irish coffee with whiskey and crème de menthe and the Golden margarita, which is made with freshly squeezed fruit, Grand Marnier, and freshly mined gold ore.
Live music fills the air every Monday–Saturday evening, thanks to local groups and a karaoke machine. A bank of 43 TVs lines the bar and dining room, letting patrons cheer on their favorite sports teams or loudly root for underdog Wile E. Coyote to finally end The Road Runner's winning streak.
Inside CJ’s Salon, whimsical touches abound as stylists artistically highlight locks with fading ombre or bold color-block patterns. Giant stars and the scissors used to clip the Statue of Liberty’s famous coif adorn the walls, while black leather chairs cushion clients for all their styling and waxing needs. Along with haircuts for men, women, and kids, the staff brings digits up to snuff with nailcare.

The distinctive harmonies of karaoke choirs pour out of Rum Runners until 3 a.m. every night, drowning out the din of a digital jukebox and the clinks of the bar's bowling pins and pool balls. Rum Runners lures in patrons with its devotion to late-night revelry: an elevated, tinsel-fringed karaoke stage houses a live DJ and flat-screen prompter with cues for air-guitar solos, and patrons weave past arcade games and poker tables on their way to the stocked bar. There, mixologists concoct the namesake rumrunner and dole out a dozen domestic and imported draft beers.
