Barley Republic’s large alfresco patio is always filled with happy patrons. The fantastic beer list features 60 carefully picked brews from all over the world. If you can’t decide on just one, try one of the beer cocktails, which pairs two beers that have complementary flavors. This public house also has a full menu filled with delicious dishes like the amazing shepherd’s pie, which is made with whole chunks of roasted lamb.
This modest but cozy little bar takes full advantage of the adjoining courtyard as a venue for local performers. Most evenings and even afternoons feature local rock bands or individual musicians livening up the joint. The atmosphere her is one of local patronage despite its location in the tourist district and coming here may afford a chance to mingle with the natives.
As the name implies, this jazz bar specializes in one indulgence above all others: cigars. The cigars are as close to Cuban delights as one can find in the US (though the offerings are mostly Honduran or Dominican). The atmosphere is relaxed and mellow but can be lively depending on the weather, the time, and the act on stage. Again, as the name states, Jazz is the main musical course here, but other local talents can also be seen demonstrating their chops.

You may want to try Mammy's Homemade Chilli or Tara's Garden Salad. There is also a good selection of sandwiches.
