O'Brian's Irish Pub
Boca Raton, FL 33432
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Dimly lit and smoky, O'Brians Irish Pub is a quaint watering hole among the upscale Boca Raton hangouts. The wooden bar mimics that of an Irish pub that has just been picked up from a Dublin street corner and brought to America. The walls are made of wood paneling and exposed brick, with various retro neon beer signs adorning them. A long leather booth lines the mirrored back wall, and a moosehead named "Melvin" greets patrons as they enter the bar. Dartboards and a poker table are available for some friendly competition among friends. Rum barrels have been transformed into tabletops, and there is a vintage cigarette machine available for smokers. O'Brians adds a bit of old neighborhood charm to the newer restaurants and bars amid the Mizner strip.
