Location Description:

A bit of Dublin in the Central Business District, Shay McElroy's is ripe for a business lunch or post-work drink - offering perhaps, as the pub crows, the "best pint of Guinness downtown." The fenced-off patio offers insulation from Main Street's stream of pedestrians, while two dozen barstools await those who'd rather sit at or near the bar. A few (silent) televisions keep sports fans up to date on the game, the in-house stereo doesn't overpower the conversation, and Shay's array of Scotch and Irish whiskeys will politely see that workday out the door.
