Right on the corner in the City of Fairfax, Auld Shabeen does a good job of meeting Americans most of the way towards and Irish pub. It's larger than most pubs and it has several traditional Irish favorites on the menu that are prepared reasonably well. The beverage selection is good and the staff are very attentive and friendly. They make a point to have live Music in pretty regularly. They are generally good but it can be a little loud if you also want to chat with your friends.
