When you're downstairs at the Oliver Plunkett in the early evening, you'll hear the Irish music playing upstairs. It will get you foot stomping and make you want to go up there to check it out. Make sure you do!

Oliver Plunkett and Frisky Whiskey in the same place. Live band on both floors and the atmosphere was great. Music was amazing. Do not miss the chance to go here.

We stumbled onto this bar. What a great place. The live music, people and staff were very friendly. We went back two other nights for meals and dance lessons. It was awesome. Recommend going there for a fun time.

We came here for a bite to eat and to take in some great music and beer. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the beer was smooth. The entertainment topped off our evening. Came for one, stayed for many.
