One of a kind for the Tri-State area. We attended a benifit here last week and very unique and cool! Beatiful limestone and gorgeous bar with blues band -local artists. Very eclectic! Very Unique! Very relaxing! Bar is always packed!

Really amazing bar in the basement on Main Street. Handcut Iowa sandstone walls, darkly lit, candle lit alcoves and music. It's a great place to get a Guinness or check out some music.

It's in a basement, so the live sound varies from Really Loud to Jet Engine. The side rooms are a great spot for a private talk or a group of friends.

A fun bar to go to, but not my choice for regular hang out. The decor is very Irish pub, which is cool, and the bands are usually quite good. However, it tends to be one of the busier (hence louder) and pricier bars in Dubuque. If you want to hear a good band and visit a a displaced Irish bar in NE Iowa, then this is the place for you.
