Opened in 1936, Desmond's Tavern is a traditional New York Irish bar, featuring live music Thursday through Saturday and a well-priced menu (corned beef sandwich with fries, $7). Fun without pretension, and with nice bartenders to boot, this large bar is a great place to grab a Guinness ($5) alone or with 30 of your friends.
