“Blending in with the locals”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

This is a small, but tastefully designed area to sit and relax after a long day of sightseeing. I was impressed that the person at the end of the bar was actually the architect that had designed the interior. He was Irish, and loved to tell Irish jokes. We talked to several locals who worked in the food industry and they gave us the “insider” reviews on several of the restaurants.
The bartender was excellent. Drinks fairly priced and not watered down like in the other "tourist traps".
I would caution about the size of the bathrooms, a "healthy" person could have some difficulties. I have seen larger bathrooms in an Recreational Vehicle.LOL
It was still worth every minute. The music was good, and the environment could put you more at ease.
The great location puts you right in the heart of some great places to eat. You are located right at Little Italy (Pinocchio’s is a must do on your dining list), and just a brisk walk on to the piers.
We found this place to be equally pleasant either late afternoon or late evening, I do not think that you can pick a wrong time.
