New Venue: O'Riley's Irish Pub Opens Downtown

O'Riley's Irish Pub recently opened in downtown Pensacola giving local craft beer lovers yet another venue to visit when out on the town.

Located just down from World of Beer, O'Riley's aims to be an "authentic Irish Pub with the traditional old world Irish Pub feel". Along with a decent craft beer list (including several selections from Pensacola Bay Brewery), the pub offers mixed drinks and other Irish staples such as Irish Coffee.

O'Riley's is two stories, with a beautiful bar bathed in green light. There's plenty of pool tables, a dart board, juke box, 10 HDTVs, and even a photo booth. No food is cooked on site, but outside food is allowed, and in the future they may have others cater at certain times. Popcorn with cajun seasoning is provided for a snack.

Of course, if you call yourself an authentic Irish Pub, you need to pour a Guinness correctly. Sadly, on both occasions we bought a Guinness at O'Riley's, they failed to do so. But that's a minor complaint in the big picture.

O'Riley's is a beautiful (non-smoking) addition to downtown Pensacola. We've added O'Riley's to our Pensacola Beer Location page. Make sure you visit when you get a chance.
