Fodor's Review

This genuine Irish pub has doubled as a bohemian oasis for 40 steady years. Drink Guinness and Bass on tap and many Irish whiskeys; hear light rock, Irish, or country music nightly, usually by 10:30. Narrow and cozy, the Plough is a comfy, noisy den for locals and students, yet a fine place to have lunch alone. The cover charge varies. Fun fact: literary magazine Ploughshares was founded here.
