Amid the high-end shops of McLean lies this rough-around-the-edges Irish gem. Dark paneling, stuffed stag heads, and vintage signs all hark back to the Green Isle, as do expertly poured pints of Guinness (note the thick, creamy heads). Post up at the bar and try a black-and-tan or a stiff serving of whiskey, best taken down with a plump beef frank smothered in house-made chili. Insider tip: The unpretentious scene means you’ll forget the nearby McMansions—until the tab arrives: Two pints and a generous platter of nachos run close to $25. Open daily.
