Thanks to the unusual logo (a stogie-smoking Castro surrounded by shamrocks) and congenial Irish wit and whimsy, you half expect to find Fidel and Gerry Adams harping on U.S. and U.K. policy over a Harp. The Edwardian decor of etched glass, hardwood, and brass is prefabricated (constructed in Ireland, disassembled, and shipped), but everything else is genuine, from the warm welcome to the ales and cider on tap to the proper Irish stew (the kitchen also turns out conch fritters and chicken tikka curry). Sunday and Monday host all-you-can-eat extravaganzas (fish-and-chips, carvery) at rock-bottom prices. Trivia nights and live music lure regulars through the week. Weekends welcome live televised Gaelic soccer, rugby, and hurling, followed by karaoke and craic (if you go, you'll learn the definition).
