Location Description:

Formerly known as Brian O'Neill's, this Rice Village Irish bar got a makeover in 2014 and a new name in the Gorgeous Gael; its new namesake is Jack Doyle, an Irish immigrant who became famous as a British heavyweight boxer, Hollywood actor and tenor. The makeover included removing walls to provide more space, adding a new back bar and kitchen, and removing the old trellis from the patio to open it up and provide more space. The owners also put in lighter wood and made the place brighter than the average Irish pub, making it more modern while retaining the Irish friendliness and charm. Gorgeous Gael has an impressive collection of Irish whiskeys and domestic/craft beers, and plans on expanding their new menu which includes burgers and slow-cooked wings. Come check out the live music here on Friday nights, and don't miss the big annual St. Patrick's Day party held here.
