Where: Teinfaltstraße 6, 1010
A wee little man wearing a paddy cap and smoking a pipe told us that the entire interior of this very popular Irish pub in the 1st district was shipped over from Ireland. Ok, it may have been the owner that told us that, nevertheless, the place is clad in dark wooden panelling and is dimly lit like any good Irish pub away from home should be. Their Guinness is rated one of the best in the city, and their pub food has made dramatic improvements in recent years.
While through the week it’s a good local pub for quiet drinks or some typical pub food (burgers, cottage pie, steak sandwiches etc.), passing through the pub on a Friday or Saturday night when live music draws a crowd is like squeezing through somebody’s intestines. The staff are a friendly bunch, and largely responsible for the regulars that line the bar most nights, and are pros at making the place seem like a fun and familiar place to anybody who walks through the door.
Highlight on the drinks menu: O’Hara Irish Pale Ale
Pub quiz: yes (every Monday night)
We also recommend you try… one of the regularly changing guest craft beers.
