What You'll Get
The Irish have long been procurers of hearty, robustly named cuisine, dubbing their beers "stouts," their mashed potatoes "champ," and everything else "Seamus." Irish up your meal with today's Groupon to The Parlour. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and pours at The Parlour on the Upper West Side.
- For $20, you get $40 worth of pub fare and pours at The Parlour in Midtown.
Boasting two unique settings, The Parlour poaches plates from the verdant hills of the Emerald Isle, updating them to sate city-dwelling palates and fuel merrymaking. Although prices vary between locations, flowing libations and dishes such as beef stew, fish 'n' chips, and shepherd's pie anchor both the Midtown menu and the Upper West Side menu firmly to Ireland, inspiring patrons to loiter outside in hope of catching a wayward beer-battered sole. Revelers reach over the Midtown location's sleek bar for glasses of wine selected from a carefully curated list, while delicately snacking upon garlicky, buttered prawns on toast ($13) and corned beef and cabbage-stuffed irish spring rolls ($7) amid the leather and wood dining room. Across town, knots of Celtic Football Club fans weave into the sporty and festive social fabric at the Upper West Side outpost. A more rustic, laid-back version of its sister pub, this Parlour's flat-screen TVs, exposed brick, and 12 beer-pong tables provide a cozy atmosphere for friendly competition, or downing a plate of buffalo wings ($7.95) or bangers and mash ($13.95) between rousing verses of "The Rose of Queensboro Hill."

About The Parlour NYC
Ireland is famous for its hospitality, thanks to an old Brehon law stating that every village must have a parlor to welcome passing travelers. Though it's not on the Emerald Isle, The Parlour aims to uphold this age-old principle in its cozy eatery decked with exposed-brick walls and rustic, wood accents. To acquaint diners with Irish flavors, more than 10 draft beers join a pub-style menu that includes such classics as bangers and mash, corned beef and cabbage, and beer-battered fish 'n' chips. The staff keeps the atmosphere lively with weekly specials and events such as karaoke, beer pong, and "Danny Boy" crying contests.
