Shay McElroy's Irish Pub
Houston, TX 77002
- Patio/Sidewalk Dining
Houston Press' Description
A bit of Dublin in the Central Business District, Shay McElroy's is ripe for a business lunch or post-work drink - offering perhaps, as the pub crows, the "best pint of Guinness downtown." The fenced-off patio offers insulation from Main Street's stream of pedestrians, while two dozen barstools await those who'd rather sit at or near the bar. A few (silent) televisions keep sports fans up to date on the game, the in-house stereo doesn't overpower the conversation, and Shay's array of Scotch and Irish whiskeys will politely see that workday out the door.
Tips from foursquare
The light rail stop is just a few feet away, so you don't have to worry about a designated driver.
Best Guinness in Houston
Kevin was born in Philly, lived there until he was 2 and came to Houston from Dublin in 2005... He looks Irish, sounds Irish and can pour a Guinness with the best.
Te Guinness is tasty, too bad it's in the small glass instead of a proper 20oz.
