This is one of about half a dozen places in down town LA that is walkable from the 7th St metro stop. Itís also the one thatís open on a Sunday afternoon. Kind of irritating that some bars open at 7pm on a Sunday night but I guess I should have checked hours before paying $6 to park. Oh well. This place is exactly what Iíve come to expect from an American Irish bar. Itís dark, there are a lot of people in there drinking on a Sunday morning, they have a fair amount of taps (a good portion of which are the usual UK imports), and they have a lot of TVs. The difference is that these guys actually have a couple of good beers mixed into the lineup. I grabbed a Lagunitas IPA but there were some beers by some more local brewers in there like Angel City and Golden Road. The pint wasnít too expensive for being in LA. I didnít look to see if they even serve food. Over all kind of a forgettable experience.

Not surprisingly, an Irish pub themed bar. Tons of taps, but not necessarily anything all that exciting. Laid back atmosphere and not super crowded early on a Saturday evening. Decent enough service and pretty good prices on beers. Not a great beer destination, but a decent place to do some drinking.

Went Friday around 4, surprisingly un-crowded. They had runout or just didnít have my first two beer choices, but the menu was big enough that my third choice wasnít a bad alternative (Ballast Pt IPA). Four bucks a beer seems like a deal at this location. Tons of TVs, but a little run down.
