This East Village spot basically takes the traditional Irish pub formula and adds a modern, minimalist sheen to it. Its name roughly translates from Gaelic to "August," which refers both to month the bar was born and to an ancient harvest festival. August is also a great time to enjoy its quaint backyard, where ivy-covered walls surround a handful of wooden benches. During colder months, you can settle in at the bar and watch the game on one of several HDTVs. The owners regularly hang exhibitions from artists they like up on the red brick walls. The bar serves pub fare like bangers and mash, fish and chips, and burgers along with more upscale entrees such as pan-seared salmon and wild mushroom ravioli to go with the 11 beers on tap. Come in during the week (Mon-Fri, 4pm-7pm) for happy hour, where a variety of drinks and appetizers are half-off.—Keith Wagstaff
