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.

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 an assortment of panini, snacks, and espresso. And of course the shiny brass taps still pour Guinness and a selection of other fine draft beers.

The Irish Pub might not qualify as “authentic,” but its welcoming ambiance, fair prices, and exuberant, down-to-earth patrons definitely create a true pub vibe.

Tip from Lucas:

Possibly the only sports bar in Venice, this place is worth checking out if you don’t want to miss a particular game. The so-called Look Out room tucked away in the back is like a ‘man-cave’ complete with a flat-screen TV and plenty of space to kick back with friends and keep up with the latest scores.

  • Crowd

    Locals, sports fans, and many easygoing English-speaking travelers, all ages.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Continuous TV coverage of sporting events and tournaments. Occasional musical sing-a-longs.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Fresh panini and snacks. Great selection of European draft beers.

  • Prices

    Panini €1–€3.50. Beer €2.50–€6, wine €2–€3, mixed drinks and shots €5–€7, Venetian spritz €2.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Weekends after 10pm, but busy any night, especially when there’s a good game on.

  • Close By

    The late-night disco bar Dogado (Cannaregio 3662) is just a minute’s walk down Strada Nova.
