This place is pretty fantastic. My husband, friend, and I stumbled in on a Saturday evening for a few drinks and we weren't disappointed. It was on the emptier side when we arrived, but nearly every stool and table was full by the time we left.
It's a very minimalist atmosphere, with clean, modern lighting. It's not one of those over-decorated, tacky "faux Irish" pubs that spring up all over the country, and I appreciate that they went with simplicity and cleanliness.
We'd just eaten before coming but I regretted that once I saw the menu. It's upscale but casual, with lots of twists on Irish classics that sounded fresh and appealing. Next time I definitely want to have a meal here.
The whiskey menu is incredible. They've got whiskeys and blends from all over the country (including some great local stuff), plus lots of international and hard-to-find whiskeys. My husband sampled four or five different kinds and he was very satisfied. I mostly stuck to beer (they have a great beer list, too) but I did have a shot of local moonshine (Monadnock Moonshine) and it was awesome. The bartender was even kind enough to let me be a total tourist and snap a photo of the bottle. She was a very attentive bartender, but not in the annoying way. All of our orders were correct, and splitting the bill between my group wasn't a problem.
The only downside was that it was very warm inside, on a fairly warm day. My husband had to go out for some air at one point, and I was feeling pretty sleepy and warm by the time we left, even though I wasn't drunk. It was also a little on the pricey side, but we got some great beer and whiskey and everything was definitely worth it.
We will definitely be back!
