To be deserving of the designation, an Irish pub must have Guinness and Bass on tap, and three or four varieties of Irish whiskey on the shelf. Beyond that, however, the variations are almost endless. For the record, though, here's what else we expect when we're in an Irish state o' mind: comfortable surroundings that evoke the Auld Sod, well-prepared Irish cuisine, a properly drawn pint of Guinness, at least occasional live entertainment, and a kickin' celebration come St. Pat's Day. From those simple criteria, we believe The Harp earns top honors. Furthermore, we believe we'll have ourselves another pint. Slainte!
