From a team that knows its way around an Irish bar (Amity Hall, Stout...Bowery Ballroom?), this tavern-of-yore's tile floors, globular lights, and photos of early 1900s neighborhood scenes set the mood in its double-barreled bar area, while an English muffin of a back area (it's got nooks!) is highlighted by an old potbelly stove.
