Having a club is great, right up until you're dragging a body of a raver who aspirated a glowstick to the dumpster wrapped in a carpet. Going old-fashioned, the owners of Lansdowne Pub
The result of the grown-up idea to "offer something more traditional", LP's the newest piece from a group who brought you Lansdowne clubs like the old Avalon, Axis, and more: an Irish pub/old-timey saloon hybrid created by stripping the Jake Ivory's piano bar down to its exposed brick walls and installing a 64-foot imported Irish wood bar, working fireplaces, faux candle chandeliers, vintage whiskey posters, a stage, covered outdoor seating, and more bar mirrors per capita than any spot in Boston. Hearty Gaelic fare includes traditional homemade pot pies (chicken, fish, or Guinness-marinated-beef), a cider-pork-sauce-slathered double cut pork chop w/ blue cheese potato cakes, and an eggs, bacon, black pudding, bangers 'n' beans breakfast that's fueled many an Irishman for a grueling day of rock tossin'. Other winners include the turkey, roast beef, and cheddar-topped ploughman's lunch salad; fresh oysters on the half-shell and skillet-seared mussels dunked in salted olive oil; and the battered sausage supper with fries and batchelor's beans, which sound good in theory, but get oh so lonely on Sunday nights
Because it is a pub, they're stocking top-shelf whiskeys (Bushmills 21, Middleton Rare, etc) and an impressive 44 brews (12 draft/32 bottles, all served in the appropriate glassware), including Belhaven, Carlsberg, and Duvel -- all meaning the happy owners will be content to only have to drag patrons to the gutter.
