With tasty Irish cuisine and a full selection of whiskeys, the Auld Irisher
lives up to its emerald-encrusted name. Located in the shopping complex just
east of the Honda Center, the bar has large windows and doors to draw
in the breeze and lend an open-air feel to the space. The beige walls
bristle with knickknacks, including vintage cigarette and Guinness
signs, as well as instruments such as accordions and violins. The
bar features 18 beers on tap; the alcoholically adventurous can try
this location's signature drink, the Luck of the Leprechaun. A
green cauldron of booze soup consisting of gin, vodka and schnapps, it's not
for those with a low tolerance, but its sweet citrus flavors are
surprisingly restrained and strike a synergistic balance of flavor.
