Counterfeit Irish pubs can be detected by their poorly concealed sake taps, five-leaf clovers, and bartenders who cast no reflection in mirrors. Experience the real deal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of beer, drinks, pizza, and more at Paddy Reilly's Music Bar in Gramercy.
Launched by Paddy Reilly, one of Ireland's leading balladeers, Paddy Reilly's Music Bar supplies a smorgasbord of malty delights, pub fodder, and auditory amusements. Behind the bar, hearty 20-ounce Guinness draughts ($7) are flanked by thrifty Pabst tall boys ($4) and a full selection of liquors ($7–$12). Edibles imported from the neighboring Fire House Pizza cement an Irish-Italian union as magical as a leprechaun's marinara-filled hat. Delectable beer-sponging delights include golden-battered calamari served with pesto mayo or marinara ($8.95), a heaping sausage-and-pepper hero ($6.45), and specialty pizzas, such as the buffalo chicken, an appetizing assemblage of spicy poultry, red onion, mozzarella, and blue cheese ($11.95).
Featured on the show Ghost Hunters, Paddy Reilly’s also boasts an exhilarating calendar populated with a wide range of acts, including such Celtic-rock drink hoisters as Black 47 and The Mickey Finns. The pub’s timeless interior features vast expanses of polished wood bedecked with memorabilia, photos of the many celebrities who have frequented the cheery watering hole, and a collection of stuffed trophy beers.
