    The live music was nice and it was nice to see the musicians sipping on Guinness as they performed. The Shepherd's pie was a little bit sweet but it was hearty.

    Try the Stoli Doli! Go during happy hour (there are two daily; one during normal happy hour times and one late night one) and they're half price.

    The hot Black Ginger Tea is better than you'd expect. I also adore the Hybernian Berry and, of course, any scotch or whiskey.
