Over bites of homemade pub classics drenched in house sauces, The Spirit Bar's guests follow athletic spectacles on six plasma TVs and a 10-foot big screen. Meet the round one bell with stuffed jumbo mushrooms ($8.95) or an order of hearty buffalo wings glazed with one of six sauces including chipotle and teriyaki ($8.95). Packing a half-pound of Angus beef more seasoned than an octogenarian mariner, the Spirit burger ($7.95) quells the rising tides of sandwich cravings; chefs are happy to switch out the Angus patty for a Garden burger ($7.95), as well as incorporate toppings such as bacon and caramelized onion ($0.75 each). In the grilled rustic chicken mozzarella, chicken breast can find a home on a bed of penne tossed with a house demi-glaze marinara sauce and fresh mozzarella cheese ($12.95). Diners can repay noses for that shortcut through the Industrial district with an aromatic gift of fire roasted ribs, a half-rack of St. Louis ribs marinated, grilled, and served with a hot mustard dipping sauce ($14.95).

The Spirit Bar

A 40-foot mahogany bar dominates the space at The Spirit Bar, allowing bartenders to slide any of the 50 available brews to patrons while they watch up to eight different games on 12 televisions, including seven 42-inch plasma screens. The bar's year-round premium sports packages keep the apple-red walls echoing with the sounds of professional baseball, hockey, or college football, and it hosts viewings of every college-basketball tournament game and pay-per-view ultimate-fighting event. Dartboards and weekly pub-trivia nights help keep patrons occupied in between athletic broadcasts.

Even the menu strives for an inclusive neighborhood feel, featuring an eclectic combination of international and regional comfort foods. The cooks slather wings with one of 17 different sauces—such as chipotle-bourbon barbecue, caribbean jerk, or garlic and parmesan—and they hand-form each Angus-beef burger patty. Fried fish 'n' chips evoke the menu of a transatlantic pub, and nachos with homemade salsa and guacamole recall flavors from south of the international date line.

Pleasant atmosphere. Excellent service. Name changed but they honored the Groupon.

Excellent server. Great burger, wings, and drafts

Love the place. Great food, very homey and friendly and awesome place to watch the game. Incidentally, the name of this place has changed to Dubliner Pub, but the owners/staff are the same and the food is just as great. I recommend the nachos and the salt and cracked pepper wings (dry rub)
