“Famous Irish pub as it has been in many TV shows (Chicago PD, Fire) and movies (like Ocean's 11). On weeknight, the place is quiet and lowkey. They have decent appetizers too. On weeknight, just like many Irish pub, this place can be very lively and jam-packed.”

The coffee bar features house-made pastries, suitable for dining in or grab-and-go. There is also a great outdoor patio. Try the fresh-squeezed juices and poke bowls.”
