Where to Sit: Cozy up to the dark mahogany bar and marvel at the impressive collection of whiskey and rye, or head to the quieter, more fancy rear dining room.
When to Go: For discounted cocktails and snacks, such as beer battered onion rings or pulled pork quesadillas, head in during happy hour, which occurs Monday–Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m..
Inside Tip: The kitchen stays open to 1 a.m. every night, so feel free to head in for a snack after a second shift or late-night jewelry heist.
While You’re Waiting: Scan the very top shelf of the bar for Guinness-related memorabilia, including vintage posters and an actual antique harp.
While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Feed your cultural appetite while working up an actual food-related one during a trip to Little Tree Gallery (3412 22nd Street), where contemporary artists of all mediums show off their stuff.
After: Check out a theatrical one-man show at The Marsh (1062 Valencia Street)
