“This is not a pub as most expect-No food...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

Now that that is out of the way...a great place to hang out. Be kind to the staff and they will be kind to you. Get too big for your britches and they will put you in your place-Exactly as it should be. If you are in when it's slow the staff chats and if they are busy, well there are other patrons to be served. Use your manners and you will love this wonderful place!

“The Standard for Bars in Downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Connolly's is still the best place to grab a pint in downtown Charlotte. Ronin is probably the best bartender in town and the staff goes out of their way to ensure you have a great time. Unlike other bars that have come and gone, Connolly's has survived the test of time and for obvious reasons.

“One of the best Pubs in Charlotte”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2012

Only problem with Connolly's is its always crowded! This is one of the better stops in Charlotte as they have a nice outdoor seating area and a bar area upstairs that is usually far less crowded than downstairs. Drink prices are on par with the neighbor hood. Definitely worth a stop if bar hopping in Charlotte.

First time in Charlotte, and looking for something outside the Epic Center. This was fun, great music, good beer selection, Irish staff.

“A great, truely Irish pub!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

No food here but a great friendly Irish pub (where everyone knows your name ;-}), with lots of cold beer, a big outside deck, and great atmosphere. In center city Charlotte on 5th, between Tryon and College streets.
