"There's no illuminated shamrocks, there's no leprechauns on the walls," he explains. "I wanted to get away from that. It's more about the Irish hospitality, the Irish way of comfort."The comfort extends to the food and drink, whether that's a little Jameson, Guinness or some good, old-fashioned pub food.
"We've got shepherd's pie, corned beef Abbey rolls, corned beef Rueben, Guinness beef stew, fish and chips, as well as your standard American staples, quesadillas, chicken wings, that kind of thing," Eastwood says. "So hopefully, it's a nice balance between the two."Since Denver already has so many Irish pubs, Eastwood and his partner, Andrew Cudden, really wanted to focus on the "neighborly" aspect of things, and provide the area between Colorado and Monaco with a bring-your-family-and-friends local hangout.
"I wanted to build a neighborhood pub. A pub that I would be proud of, proud to own, a place where I would feel comfortable drinking." says Eastwood. "And, ultimately, I hope I've achieved that."
