Enjoy traditional Irish music at a truly authentic Irish pub in Utica, NY.
Imagine sipping a pint and savoring a bowl of Irish stew while the lilting tunes of a traditional Irish band play in the background. You may think only a plane ticket to the Emerald Isle would give you an experience like this. But you don’t have to go that far.
On the first Thursday of each month starting at 7:30pm, you can spend an evening in Utica, NY, that’s pretty close to one you’d enjoy at a pub in Ireland.
Musicians from Craobh Dugan, a Utica-Rome-based session band, play set after set of the old traditional tunes. They even break out in song from time to time.
In the warm mahogany and stained glass furnishings of Five Points Public House, which was hand-hewn in Dublin, you’ll be transported to old Éireann in no time.
