Ironworks books some pretty good shows. They serve bar food and have a good size bar. They also have a side patio.

We didn't eat anything. We only came for a pre game beer (or 3). The beer was delicious and the atmosphere for pre-game was outstanding. It got busy fast and it was standing room only when we left.
