It is one several places where the "locals" socialize in Mystic. It has a pool table and often musicians will often simply walk in to entertain. Everyone, first-timers or regulars, always seem to be welcome. It has a true pub atmosphere.

This is a small pub, a place for drinks, a game of pool, and some evenings entertainment. If the town gets snow and closes, you can always count on John's to be open and welcome you!

Great place during weekend days....The bartender will keep you laughing with Irish stories. Outdated with a pool table and music box on the wall but its part of the charm. Shots and Beers...nothing fancy. Well worth a visit after shopping and walking around the town.
