We had just eaten dinner upstairs and North Peak Brewing Co, and decided to head down here for a drink. We sat at a sofa and it was a very cozy atmosphere. I had an amaretto sour and it was perfectly balanced. Would return.

We were directed to Kilkenny’s while waiting for a table at North Peak. Sat at the bar and was greeted right away. I ordered a craft beer, Northern Light, off the short menu and my wife had them make Moscoe Mule without the rosemary. The...More

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

We were actually upstairs at a brewery and decided to swing by on our way out. As luck would have it this place is absolutely wonderful. I loved the decor, it was very unique and cozy. There are a couple of fireplace seating areas as...More

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.
