Best modern Irish bar: Strandhill Public

Strandhill Public

We all know the tried and true Irish bar aesthetic, wooden walls, thatched roof, old vaguely British memorabilia. What Rory Martin has done here is truly special. Taking the Irish bar into the modern age is no easy feat. Staff it with great bartenders, a killer whiskey selection, and a draft list that puts lesser known Irish craft brews next to the heavy hitters makes for a great place to wind up or turn down every night of the week. With outposts in Brandon and at the Pearl next to Armature Works, you're never too far away from your next after work beer and a shot combo.
