John D. McGurk's Irish Pub and Garden (1200 Russell Boulevard; 314-776-8309) McGurk's has been a St. Louis Irish fixture since 1978, when it was a one-room pub house. Since then, it has expanded into nearly 20,000 feet of Irish good times. It was named one of the "Best Bars in America" by Esquire magazine in 2012 (the only one in St. Louis!), and it has gen-yew-ine Irish musicians every night of the week, ranging from rowdy sing-alongs to traditional reels and jigs played by master folk musicians.

Molly Darcys (26 North Meramec Avenue, Clayton; 314-863-8400) Part of the historic, Tudor revival-styled Seven Gables Inn in downtown Clayton and with roots in the Irish city of Killarney, Molly Darcys is an Irish-themed pub serving up drinks and food in the fashion of the isles. The fare found in this cozy pub blends familiar pub food with a few modern, and even local, touches and flavors. Molly Darcys features live Irish music on Friday nights and a list of beers and whiskeys to go with each tune.
