Happy Hour at O'Shea's

Every town has at least one Irish pub. It's part of the global Irish-industrial complex. O'Shea's is the West Palm Beach outpost for wayward Irishmen and women and locals looking for an authentic Irish experience -- or at least something different from the usual Clematis Street vibe.

Sit down for some Irish fare, have a Guinness, play darts, or shoot some pool. Plenty of seating is available in the main or side game room. Or if you prefer the outdoors, there are seats on the sidewalk out front and a courtyard in the back. After-happy-hour activities include live music on the stage in the main room or bar games like poker or trivia in which the winner gets his or her tab comped.

O'Shea's is also the first bar in Florida to feature a Draft Master, which allows you to pour your own Guinness and/or Harp at a specially made circular table. The Draft Master is priced by the ounce, not the glass, but the discount is priced into the machine during happy hour.

It may not be the cheapest happy hour in the area. But in this town, it's pretty good. And if you're just here for lunch or dinner, a little discount on the drink side of the bill is welcome.
