    Almost impossible to see a TV if you're watching the soccer due to the layout of the bar & the weird places they put them. The moody bar staff make you feel like you're in a central London pub!

    Do512 just nowA seriously great Irish pub. Great for game watching or patio-sitting during summers. This year for SXSW, there's an awesome free party on 3/12! Deets at www.do512.com

    It's a cool pub, but you better be a Rugby fan if you're here during a game. Beers are mid range price, but they have all your Irish standards

    A true Irish Pub, they frequently have live music (usually a cover on such nights), excellent beers on tap and a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The food is good too; try the curry or fish & chips.
