Each Auld Dubliner location must meet the stringent level of authenticity required by co-owner and Gaelic strongdrinker David Copley. A native of Limerick, Ireland, Copley might share a dirty poem if you ask nicely, but he's more likely to tell you that every part of his pub's polished wood, brass décor, and menu of toothsome Erin edibles was designed and crafted in Ireland and transported piece by piece to its new American home. Tuck right into pub classics such as shepherd's pie with ground beef and lamb ($12.95) or the for-more-than-St.-Patty's-Day corned beef and cabbage ($12.95). Other fare that comes with a shamrock stamp of approval includes the traditional boxty (a potato pancake), stuffed with delights such as Irish bacon and melted cheddar ($13.95) or Atlantic salmon with shallots and tarragon ($15.95). For a finish as sweet as a "yes" from Molly Bloom, the Irish-whiskey crème brûlée adds a twist to the traditional dessert.
Instead of the usual burger and fries, quick-serve restaurant Sinbad offers healthy Greek and Lebanese dishes. Traditional hummus and falafel mix with more exotic dishes such as arayes, which is ground lamb mixed with onion, cilantro, and spices. Guests can puff away at a hookah while they dine, mingling the savory smells of cooking kebabs with the plumes of smoke. Flavorful tobaccos span from spiced chai to strawberry margarita to mint.
At night, the causal space reinvents itself as a nighclub, laser lights darting across the dance floor as guests groove to the beat. On select nights, guests may belt out their favorite karaoke tunes or belly dancers may take the stage, entrancing onlookers with their artistic gyrations.
Stop by for a meal and a cold one in this fun-filled sports themed restaurant atmosphere. Bring together friends and family to enjoy watching sports, and sup on savory selections of pizza, pasta, sandwiches and salads. Try the “Blazing Chicken Pizza” or “Pepper Steak Pizza” from the specialty menu, or choose other toppings for custom-made pizza favorites. Not in the mood for pizza? Fill up on Italian food selections such as spaghetti with meatballs and lasagna, or enjoy a delicious sandwich, burger, salad or appetizer. Other menu items include Mexican food options such as fish tacos and quesadillas. Enjoy dining indoors or on the patio outdoors for good times, entertainment, fun and a place to make memories.
Across the 20 lanes at Universal Strike Bowling Center, the rolling thrum of bowling balls prefaces the clattering of pins. As guests hunt strikes and spares, automated scoring tallies each felled pin, and pours of beer and platters of pizza from the sports bar sate competitors' appetites.
Away from the lanes, Universal Strike Bowling Center houses other venues for friendly competition, including a large arcade, and pool tables. In three banquet halls that can host up to 500 guests, the sprawling facility puts on wedding receptions, corporate gatherings, quinceañeras, and other festive events.
At Naim's Lounge, the chatter of friendly conversation mingles with wisps of fragrant hookah smoke, melting away workday stresses in the midst of friendly company. Guests puff on Lebanese pipes, surrounded by burbling fountains, televisions, and cozy sectioned couches.
At Black Horse Tavern & Grill, the decor is not surprisingly centered around framed pictures of horses and horse head statues?all black, of course. The equine-heavy furnishings surround the eatery?s main star, the bar?also horseshoe shaped?which sits in the center of the room. There, bartenders pull from taps of Blue Moon, Stella Artois, and a handful of craft brews. Back in the kitchen, chefs celebrate all things American with large-portion entrees that include made-from-scratch fish and chips, potato croquettes, marinated hanger steak, and bacon wrapped meatloaf paired with mashed potatoes smothered in gravy. A number of flat-screen TVs are tuned to the day's big sporting events, and the bar supplies handheld electronic trivia games that can be played against strangers or your split personality.
