When to Go: Sundays are popular for the live Irish music session from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. Wednesdays feature an open mic with performers who span musical genres.

Parking: If there's no street parking, bring your keys inside and tell the barkeeps your woes. They'll arrange to have your car parked by the valet service the bar shares with nearby restaurant Emilio's.
