From the owner of Celtic Swell, a college crowd sort of bar on the shores of West Seattle, this is another Irish pub with all the standard American Irish pub accoutrements -- the Guiness ads, the exposed brick and wood, the framed photos of the old country, the Pogues playing on the sound system, and some authentically bland Irish food. They only unique thing I noticed was the wildly neck craning angles of the televisions for people at the bar. Then again, it might be seen as a refreshing change to get a bar in Belltown that people go to because it is their neighborhood place, not because it has any unique attractions or a particular crowd.
