Before it was The Pearl Tavern, this Midtown Village space was just called Irish Pub, and it was Your Average Neighborhood Dive Bar for decades. But when it closed earlier in 2019, the people behind Townsend and Oloroso bought and reopened it without doing much work inside. The biggest difference is what they’re serving - they’ve got lots of craft beer, plus a small but diverse selection of wine and a few cocktails. In terms of food, you’ll see a mix of classic bar food like burgers and wings, along with a large seafood selection, including a raw bar.
