Irish Pub / Sports Bar
Party Earth Review Formerly known as Fiddler’s Elbow, The Irish Pub’s new owners have gone out of their way to freshen up the décor and modernize the technology to better serve the same sports-loving clientele the bar has always attracted. Four extra-wide flat-screen TVs now hang high at various points throughout the three quaint rooms and, coupled with the addition of bar-height tables and ledges, offer rowdy football fans better viewing and more space to rest their pints when they throw up their arms and shout “Gooooaaal!” Much of the rustic tavern furniture and combination nautical/sports décor remains the same, though the service bar has been expanded to include ... more

If screaming over a bit of soccer doesn’t sound satisfying, you can always find mellower joints like the Inishark pub, which promise a more staid atmosphere while still carrying all the major games.
Nonetheless, Irish pubs in Venice don’t abound, and those truly homesick or dying for some bangers & mash and shepherd’s pie will certainly not be feeling the luck of the Irish. Then again, if you only went to Venice to hang out in an Irish pub, you’re kind of missing the point, aren’t you?
