What to expect?
Once you walk in you’ll see a lively pub-style bar + beer garden (think: grabbing a drink or two after work). Take a seat at thebar, admire the custom glass work, and enjoy a drink with over 60 premium whiskeys to sample and a bar staff that boasts the “perfect pour” of Guinness.
If you’re looking to sit down for a meal, there is a more reserved dining room that features vaulted ceilings, a rock facade, cozy leather booths, and full-length windows that open to the plaza.
Looking for a more private dining experience?Check out Arthur’s Lounge — which was named after Arthur Guinness, the Irish entrepreneur and brewer of Guinness beer — located off the bar area and perfect for large dinner parties.
Pro tip: don’t miss the bright green phone booth to really step into a European experience.

What to order?
Take a bite out of fresh in-house Irish soda bread, the Irish arancini, or the spread at the traditional Sunday roasts. Plus, don’t skip on the cold smoked salmon or the scotch egg. Expect the menu to change with the seasons.
Of course, there are New England staples on the menu, including Chef Aidan McGee’s take on a lobster roll, served on the Irish soda bread with lemon mayonnaise and scallions + a seafood chowder.
Sip on one of the signature cocktails, including a Dubliner, which is an Irish take on a Manhattan, or an espresso martini.
What’s an Irish pub without live music? The Dubliner will feature live music on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The team is currentlyaccepting booking requests, so if you are a musician or know of a band that would be a good fit, email the team.
Head over to 2 Center Plaza to sip a brew or two for yourself.

Editor’s pick:If you’re ready for an adventure and a bite, take a road trip to Ludlow(about an hour and 20 minute drive from Boston) for a slice from Casa Pizzeria, just like Barstool’s Dave Portnoy did when he was in town for the NBA finals. He stopped by the popular pizza spot for his YouTube channel “One Bite” that gives viewers the cheesy details on pizza reviews and the local restaurant earned a 7.9 out of 10.
If you’re hungry for a multiple stop road trip, Portnoy has also rated Springfield’s Red Rose Pizzeria (7.9) + Worcester’s I Love Frankie’s (7.7). 🍕
