For the largest drinking and dining venue in town, refer to Bykjeller'n.
The well-attended Irishman Pub, Strandgata 31 (tel. 62-52-33-92), draws a lively crowd, usually in the 30- to 50-year-old bracket, to its 1930s-era precincts. The decor? Classic Irish pub, down to the pictures of famous Irishmen lining the walls. Recorded music plays in the background except on Friday, when live music is heard. On one night, the singers owed massive inspiration to The Beatles and Bob Dylan. Of course, Guinness and Irish whiskeys rule the night. Open Sunday and Monday noon to 8pm, Tuesday to Thursday noon to 12:30am, and Friday and Saturday noon to 2:30am.
