The best pub in USA offers more than just a drink, like delicious pub food and friendly atmosphere. Whether it’s for a quick pint and some sports on the big screen or an upscale dinner, there are plenty of great options out there.
When it comes to Irish bars, the Burren in Savannah ticks all the right boxes: it’s full of older Tufts students and Dublin expats, it’s got a bunch of Irish knickknacks (including a telephone booth for visiting leprechauns), and there are live traditional music sessions every night. It’s also home to a “Hall of Heroes” honoring the area’s servicemen, so it’s no surprise that it made the top of the second annual North America’s 50 Best Bars list.
While New York City claims the top spot again, there are a number of great bars all over the country that deserve a look. The Standard Tap in Philadelphia, for example, serves up an extensive range of great beers with classic pub fare. Think burgers, wings, and even a hearty meatloaf entree.
The Bee’s Knees in Idaho Falls, which was started by two sisters, is another top choice. It offers a long list of elevated pub foods, including the aptly named Bang the Dragon pizza with teriyaki peanut sauce, chicken, pineapple, and mozzarella cheese. Holy Grale in Brooklyn is a beer temple, but it’s not just about the liquid—an eclectic curated menu of European dishes and American farm-to-table choices like celery root and chive dumplings complements the amazing brew selection.
