Day or night, Casey's Irish Pub's underground location provides a dimly lit yet cheery escape from your everyday. Doors open around lunchtime on weekdays for professionals looking for a hearty Irish meal or a burger and a Guinness to wash it down. Night-owls come for "pickle back" shots and the sports pub vibe, or a good conversation with a friendly bartender.
On the daily, Casey provides a good old-fashioned pub vibe no matter what mood you are in. Walk down the steps to the underground establishment and you are welcomed with a string of dimly lit booths, games and a full bar. At night, locals play competitive ping-pong while out-of-towners try their hand at darts and billiards.
Because Casey’s is located in Downtown's corporate district (across from the One Wilshire Building), patrons visit for discreet business meetings or to socialize during happy hour. Go in any day of the week (or night) and you will find the crowd is mixed with locals, bikers, tourists, and everything in between. No matter what, the comfortable and authentic pub feel provide a feeling that washes down great with your Guinness.
Instead of the Los Angeles upscale feel, Casey's is more simplistic. Bartenders make simple yet traditional Irish drinks that are well-crafted and stiff. A pint of Guinness, in fact, is on the list under appetizers, connoting that idea that the fun is just getting started.
With Monday trivia, live bands on the weeks, televisions and a juke box in a venue saturated with History, getting bored is not an option.
While you can enjoy Casey's year 'round, St. Patrick's Day should motivate you to pay them a visit. Casey's 41st Annual St. Patrick's Day Festival includes the pub as one out of seven establishments with live bands and drink specials.
