This place is owned by Matt McIntire, a native Irishman who also owns a couple other Irish-themed bars around town. Naturally, they all follow the same format so there's not a lot of difference from one to the next. This is a near-identical copy of the nearby Shamrock Pub.

Located below street level on the far side of downtown (took over the old Black Dog location), it's a nice, spacious and clean layout with a long bar, tables and chairs, and lots of natural wood. Pool table, darts, a big teevee, some video games and a stage area for a small band. It's been cleaned up quite a lot since the rather ragged Black Dog days. If anything, it looks a little *too* neat and clean (although it is new).

A long and comfortable bar also follows the same formula as Matt's other establishments: about 10 taps in the middle (good pours) and two standing refrigerator cases, one on either side, with probably 50-60 brands in bottles. While it's likely most of the clientele will be drinking Bud Lite, it's easy to find a well-poured Guinness or fresh bottles of craft beer. Full bar service, no food.

A good place, a comfortable place, but a little lacking in local flavor.

Went here a couple of weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised at the selection. For a Fort Worth bar I am sure it is among the best. All of the local offerings from Rahr were in place (including the semi-rare Iron Thistle) and lots of imports which is what I focused on. Chimay (white, blue, red), Duvel, many Unibroue offerings. Plenty of German, Belgian, and other imported beers in the bottle. Prices were very reasonable as well.

My main complaints were the amount of smoke was overwhelming even for a smoker, and I had to wash all of my clothes from the smoke.

They did have good music playing (Tool and other rock) though which made me enjoy it more. Service was responsive and adequate. One bartender knew to pour my Duvel into a Duvel glass, but the other bartender tried to give me a La Fin Du Monde in a pint glass. I had to ask for another Duvel tulip glass, but he obliged.

For Fort Worth I really liked this place. If it was in Dallas I would probably rate its selection slightly lower.

Located in downtown Fort Worth, this little bar tends to attract a wide variety of people and ages at all times of the night. I've seen older people and college aged students in here. Nothing special in terms of variety of beer they have, but I think the prices here are a little better than else where. Reasonably priced pitchers. Some televisions in the place as well as your standard bar game shuffle board and pool tables. I don't believe they serve food but I could be wrong. Nothing really special about this place, just your average bar.
