My friends and I were walking around Gaslamp when we found Maloney's. The 1st floor was dead... maybe 6 people. It was easy to get a drink at that bar. Downstairs has the dance floor and pool tables. They play great music. A lot more...More

More like a dorm rec room with a bar attached. Irish in name only. If you want the Irish experience and great food and drinks with the Irish flavor go to 'The Field" or "Dublin Square Irish Pub & Grill" this place is not up...More

The door guy said it was a $10 cover charge per person but that all drinks were $1. He lied. The dollar drinks were of the cheap stuff and didn't include red wine, scotch or Crown. When I mentioned it to him, he snapped at...More

This place is in a great location. Located on a lower level, It's perfect if you're looking for a quiet place to drink, relax, and escape the outside world for a bit. The drink list is extensive, and the bartenders friendly. The atmosphere is fun,...More

We stopped here for drinks and their overall selection was on the small side. It seems like mostly a college aged bar although it was dead in the early evening when we were there. Our bartender was an extremely nice young lady who answered all...More

My friend & I were visiting from Australia & we were very impressed with the bar man. The place itself was a dive- but ended up being fun. We had "around the World" drinks- DEEEELICIOUS & super cheap!!!

Went here to be at an Irish Pub for Bloomsday. Chose Maloney's at random from the 5 Irish Pubs in the Gaslamp. A mistake. At 6:30 PM the place was empty. We two were the only customers. We left at 8 PM and they were...More

Ok, sure, I can see how this is a college bar and a nice hangout because of the billiards and the dance floor. However, that doesn't excuse the fact that EVERYTHING seemed to be sticky (seats, floor) and that drinks were unreasonably expensive ($25 for...More

This place made me feel old! Dollar drinks on a Thursday night were pretty awesome, but I didn't appreciate seeing barely 21-year-olds grinding on each other like they just discovered the opposite sex. I had a fun time with my friends - this is a...More
