Finn McCool's Irish Pub is more than a popular neighborhood watering hole; it's also an authentic Irish pub by the beach, complete with a bar shipped from Dublin, Ireland! Found on Main Street in Santa Monica just around the corner from the ocean, Finn McCool's boasts an Irish gastropub menu, Irish decor, Irish murals and even Irish waitstaff. Award-winning chef Geraldine Gilliland painstakingly transported and reconstructed her father's pub from Ireland, and the result is a truly authentic experience. Like most Irish pubs, Finn McCool's features live music, with weekly open mics and traditional Irish music every Sunday. Get comfortable in one of the dark leather booths and dine on menu favorites like Irish Nachos or Blarney Bacon Finn Skins. Head to the bar to try out the large selection of whiskeys and draught beers that has made Finn McCool's Irish Pub a local favorite. Order an imperial pint of Irish brews like Guinness, Boddingtons or Bass or sip from a selection of spirits, single malt scotches and whiskeys. Enjoy great happy hour deals every day of the week at Finn McCool's or join the wild crowd on Saint Patrick's Day for a party that will make your friends green with envy!
