Friendly, laid-back and dripping with whiskey, the many Irish pubs of Los Angeles reflect the diversity and history of the city's Irish population. In Los Angeles Irish bars you will find traditional cuisine such as hearty stews and cabbage dishes, live Irish music and plenty of friendly faces. Santa Monica favorite Finn McCool's features an original bar brought from Dublin, Irish musicians, a house band and numerous Irish staff members. Cozy Sonny McLean's has a cult following for its great vibes and animated crowd, while McG's Pub in the Valley is known for top-rated Irish dishes like bangers and mash. Local mainstay Molly Malone's has been serving LA's best Irish coffee for 43 years to regulars (whose pictures hang on the wall), while Dillon's in Hollywood is loved for its pub food with a California twist (and the waitresses in short kilts). Hennessey's Tavern in Redondo Beach boasts the best view for sipping Irish beers and liquors; their ocean-side outdoor deck is the perfect location to toast the sunset. Perhaps the most popular Irish pub in LA, Casey's Pub downtown is known for its Saint Patrick's Day street festival, its history (the building once housed a Turkish bath) and its all-day happy hour.
The very oldest Irish pub in Los Angeles is Tom Bergin's Tavern in Beverly Hills, a quaint Irish-style cottage that opened in 1936 and whose heavy horseshoe-shaped bar was the inspiration for the popular television show Cheers.
