Harrington’s has been around since 1933, and it (understandably) feels older than a lot of the surrounding bars. It’s dark inside, with old-timey cash registers and a back wall with a marlin hanging above the kitchen window (we would love to know the story behind that one). Come here with a few friends and split a pitcher outside on a nice day, or drink a pint in silence at the bar and watch a game while you wait for rush hour to pass.
