A good Irish pub isn't just the perfect place to practice close-up magic on unsuspecting patrons; it's also a great spot to meet friends and share Burton Gilliam gossip. Crack open a can of authentic craic with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $25 worth of grub and drinks at Nanny O'Briens on Connecticut Avenue in Cleveland Park. Monday-night Irish jam sessions sprinkle the timbre of collective music upon steaming plates of comfort food and accompanying pints of comfort Guinness.
Nanny O'Briens is a Washington Post editors' pick for its commitment to Irish hospitality. Every Monday eve beginning at 9, traditional Irish seisiuns bring together the musical chops of local strummers and crooners who fill the air with social waves of sound, inviting everyone with a voice or a set of ears to feel the communal power of appetite-whetting tunes. Tuesday night is Trivia Night starting at 8:30, and every night after is content to be merry feasting and drinking night.
Cravings turn their gullets toward Nanny O'Briens menu of classic and local favorites. Fried pickles are beer battered in-house to inaugurate any meal ($4.95) alongside a pair of all-beef Harp-soaked hot dogs ($5.95) before entree bites enter the arena.
Nanny O'Briens is committed to constant improvement on its already stellar menu, so stop in to see what's being offered, as their online menu may contain items that aren't currently available.
- Nanny’s in Cleveland Park has long been the Irish anchor of D.C. It’s not dotted with shamrocks or trying too hard to be the second coming of James Joyce. Its simple pub menu features a fair fish and chips (batter includes Harp), a solid Guinness stew, and decent, if not-exactly-Irish, veggie burgers and perfectly seasoned chicken fingers. – Jule Banville, Washington City Paper
- Nanny's feels like a neighborhood pub, not a marketing gimmick. – Fritz Hahn, Washington Post
- Talk about going where everyone knows your name! It's great to go into your local and have a pint pulled before you ask! – Carla Pappalardo, CityVoter
- This place is laid back, everyone knows everyone else, the bartenders and waitress are super nice, the jukebox is great, and you can't go wrong with any of the beers offered. – A. T., Yelp
