The menu is basic pub grub with chicken wings, burgers, and fish fry. The tavern is right in the center of the Theater District action with Shea's Performing Arts Center and Irish Classical Theatre Company a mere two blocks to the west. The early 20th-century mix of an old copper ceiling, interior brick walls and dark wood add to the feeling that you're back in Ireland.

Locals keep coming back for the Dublin City Fish-n-Chips, and D'arcy's Famous Corned Beef & Cabbage is a favorite of regular and new patrons. Cap off the night with a brew and live performance.

Best of all, no lippy DJs or cover charge.
