Think Irish pub meets architect dating an interior designer. Fun atmosphere with excellent service and choices. Pool tables were heard, fireplaces and live music.

This is probably the best place for a little bit of night life in Traverse city. However, It does get extremely packed and the alcohol quality is pretty bad. Music is alright.

So dark and dimly lit, we were not even sure the place was open. Only 1 person in the place at 500p. Didn't even bother to sit down. We bailed. NIOT what one expects from an Irish pub.
