A University City staple, Blarney Stone makes a good argument for why a dive bar is the best bar. Open 7 days a week, the Irish pub does what it does consistently and reliably. Expect a relaxed atmosphere, great prices, good food and drink, and (Thursday-Sunday) a story or two for tomorrow.
Neighborhood devotees gather to socialize as long as the door’s still open and there’s a place to set down a drink. Regulars return for the killer happy hour, inventive specials (changed daily), variety of beers on tap, easy access to ample flat screen TVs, rousing games of karaoke and trivia, and 10/10 odds of a good time. Whether you like to just people watch, or befriend the bartender, our bet’s on Blarney Stone.
