Since 1990, McGonigel's has specialized in music, but unlike most Irish pubs the bar isn't beholden to the styles of the Emerald Isle. The open mic night on Mondays finds up-n-coming country artists competing for the spotlight, while the other evenings are packed with shows from industry greats. Whether you want a simple Guinness or a micro brew, the pub has an extensive draught list for even the most picky drinker. And, like we said, even if you're picky about your twangy accents and strummed six-strings, you'll still be satisfied.
