    This pub is absolutely underrated. All of my friends have their power hours here because the service is great, it's lacking in the fist-pump scene, and the patio is perfect year-round.

    "It takes 119.53 seconds for a pint of Guiness to settle." This allows the nitrogen to collect at the top. So wait 2 minutes after they serve you the drink.

    If doing a pub crawl, make this an early stop...the people at the door don't tolerate drunk shenanigans. It's not a rare occurrence to get kicked out of here for tomfoolery.
