Downtown, Los Angeles –
It’s all about whiskey, beer, and hanging out at Casey’s Irish Pub, a welcoming, subterranean, 10,000-square-foot watering hole popular with a diverse clientele of young professionals, USC students, and creative types.
A roomy outdoor patio at the foot of the stairs gives way to the sprawling rustic interior, where friendly ex-frat boys and college types gather at the mahogany bar or hole up in one of the many wooden booths to chat loudly over pints of Guinness and shepherd’s pie.
Darts, pool, and foosball draw gamers off to the side room, while several TVs over the bar keep the sports fans happy.
Truly a place for everyone, the venue accommodates a unique mix of people, from cheering football fanatics and flirty coeds looking to meet and mingle, to sullen drinkers hunching over their whiskey in the corners and hipper artsy types who show up on weekends when indie rockers and singer/songwriters take to the stage in back.
Although Casey’s is always buzzing with a boisterous crowd, it rarely devolves into a drunken mess, making it perfect for anyone looking to unwind with a lively bunch of beer and whiskey lovers who know how to hold their liquor.
Young professionals, college students, average Joes, and hip downtown creative types, 20s to mid-30s.
Live music featuring mostly indie pop and singer/songwriters Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Jukebox selections include modern indie favorites, 80s, 90s college rock, and standards.
Events include Trivia Night Mondays at 6pm and Drink and Draw Social Club Thursdays starting at 8pm. TVs tuned to sports. Pool table, ping pong table, foosball, and dartboards.
Traditional bar fare including appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, pasta, salads, and Irish favorites like Guinness stew. Kitchen open until 10pm M–W and midnight Th–Sa. Happy Hour daily 3–7pm and all day Monday.
Appetizers $4+, sandwiches and burgers $10+, pasta $12+, Irish dishes $12+. Beer $4–$6, mixed drinks $6+, whiskey $7+.
Nice casual: button-downs and nice jeans for guys, t-shirts or dressed-down blouses and jeans for women.
Thursdays for Drink and Draw and a good-sized crowd, or Friday and Saturday nights for the live music.
Seven Grand (515 West 7th Street) ditches the Irish theme but still brings the whiskey by the barrel.
