    This is an awesome Irish Whiskey/Absinthe bar with a rich speakeasy history. They play soft Gaelic ballads and only carry Irish beers. The creeps also look (and smell!) really solid!

    Absinthe here is properly done. Amazing idea for 1st/ early in the game date. Quite different + impressive. Discover impressive drinks like this at Hooch.co. Get your 1st mo. for $1 w code "fromfouad"

    They're very proud of their "authentic absinthe" and their selection is indeed good. What you should really come for, though, is the live Irish music on Monday nights.

    Hot buttered cider with some whiskey is amazing. Great spot for some drinks and conversations. I love coming here on dates.

    Ask nicely, and the owner will give you a tour of the prohibition tunnels in the basement... and a really cool lesson in neighborhood history.

    Bar/museum/theater/creperie - I recommend getting a hot buttered cider with whiskey and a butter + sugar crepe. Also butter.

    Fun little spot to grab a drink before a show at Theater 80. They specialize in Absinthe

    Fantastic little place with a great history. Go when it's quiet & the owner will tell you all about it.

    For me, this place is creepy in that way that you feel out of place and welcomed at the same time.

    It’s one of the oldest speakeasies in the city. The dapper-dressed owner is known to regale customers with tales of the Prohibition Era and Irish mythology.
