With a great selection of beer and bacon cheese fries, this is another hotspot for live music and a nice bar scene. You don’t have to be Irish to get in, which is great, because you want to be there on Saint Patrick’s Day. Everyone goes to toast life, love and above all, a good scotch.

Tommy's on Thomas:

Tommy’s offer Paninis, po’boys and pasta, but you go for the pizza. Calzone, Greek, Vegetarian, Mexican, BLT, the list is endless, but the results are the same: amazing pizza made stone baked for your taste buds.

The name is patriotic and the drinks make you want to pledge allegiance to Todd Delaune for opening it in the first place.
