Rembrandtplein, Amsterdam –
Perfectly situated on the river Amstel just around the corner from Rembrandtplein, Mulligan's is a typical Irish pub with plenty of Guinness on tap, large TVs to keep the sports fans happy, and pictures of the green countryside of Ireland to keep the expats from feeling homesick.
A large smoking room in back gives tobacco hounds a dedicated spot to satiate their cravings, while a graffiti-laden outdoor terrace in the back – called Oscar Wilde's Courtyard thanks to a pensive portrait of the famous scribe along one wall – provides pleasant afternoon hangouts whenever the weather allows.
An additional long bar downstairs and a smaller lounge area upstairs really get hopping when musicians take the stage from Wednesday to Sunday, banging out everything from traditional and contemporary Irish gigs to bumping bluegrass.
The amicable staff and jovial regulars enhance the comforting and friendly vibe, so patrons should plan on settling in for the night with a few pints and a bit of live entertainment.
The Irish are known for their penchant for drink and love of spirited music, and though that’s certainly a stereotype, both clichés are alive and well at Mulligan’s.
Lively, sociable people of all ages.
Traditional Irish tunes and bluegrass are the norm. Pick up a program in the bar or check the website to see who’s playing. Free Wi-Fi.
No food, but an impressive menu of over twenty Irish whiskeys.
Beer €3+, mixed drinks €6.
Wednesdays through Sundays when there’s live music. The Sunday show is an open session known to pull in a twenty-musician jam crew.
