The Best Pub in USA

Whether you’re looking for a pub that serves up a solid selection of beers or one that offers cozy ambiance and delicious food, we’ve got your back. These top pubs in the USA all deliver a little something extra to the table.

This Irish pub checks all the right boxes for an authentic experience (hearty Irish eats, proper pours of Guinness), but the real draw here is the fact that it’s actually in the heart of downtown Nashville. Its location, burgers, and live music make it the go-to spot for older Tufts students and Nashville locals alike.

The Burren is a beloved Tufts bar with the kind of neighborhood charm that you don’t see in most college towns. Its karaoke nights, free live music on weekends, and Guinness-battered onion rings make it the pick of the pack. And if you’re wondering how this place makes it in a college town, just look at the crowd: it’s made up of older students, Irish expats, and dudes who moved to Cuse to save money on rent.

Though it’s regarded as the smallest pub in San Francisco, the Black Horse still packs a punch. The snug tavern can only fit 22 people at a time due to fire code restrictions, but it’s become an intimate gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. The bar itself features leather furnishings and dark wood decor that give the pub a classic appearance. The pub also offers a number of different beers, both draft and canned, including some exclusives.
