It's difficult to think of Dogtown without the Pat Connolly Tavern coming to mind. Opened in 1942 by a recent immigrant from Galway County, Ireland, the pub is the canvas on which much of the neighborhood's green, white and orange history was painted. Over the decades, the venerable bar-and-grill has mastered the classic Irish pub formula: a down-to-earth atmosphere, friendly service and cold Guinness on tap. Under new owners Theresa Connolly Jovanovich and Joe Jovanovich, who are descendants of the eponymous Pat Connolly, the tavern also has a new-and-improved menu of classic pub food and a sleeker look that harkens back to its mid-century origins. The famous fried chicken, of course, hasn't changed -- and it's still some of the best in town.
