Counterfeit Irish pubs can be detected by their five-leaf clovers, poorly concealed sake taps, and suspicious number of Blarney Stones. Avoid bars that are merely Irish-ish with this Groupon.
$12 for $25 Worth of Pub Fare and Drinks
A menu of hearty pub fare and Irish eats serenades taste buds with treats such as mac 'n' cheese bites ($8.99), a goat-cheese salad with a verdant spring mix, crunchy walnuts, and tangy raspberry vinaigrette ($8.99), and a satisfying shepherd's pie of beef and veggies topped with mashed potatoes and melted cheese ($12.99).
An arm of a multi-city pub empire, McFadden's entertains multitudes inside an expansive 10,000-square-foot space, provisioning revelers with frosty beers, potent whiskeys, and a menu of contemporary snacks and salads alongside traditional pub fare. Patrons belly up to the 100-foot mahogany bar for libations, or they can munch on fish 'n' chips while watching sports on one of the 40 high-definition TVs. Upstairs, staff members entertain private parties on a 2,200-square-foot patio with outdoor TVs, a private bar, lounge seating, bottle service, and teaching of secret handshakes, and live DJs supply downstairs gatherings with danceable music every Thursday–Saturday.
