Best Downtown Bar


Staff Pick

The quintessential Irish pub, since 1997. The owners of Ri-Ra now operate seven such bars up and down the East Coast, since the Charlotte location — the original — remains a raving success. In addition to live music and tasty eats (including quite a few authentic Irish entrees), Ri-Ra is home of the perfect Guinness pint. Oh yeah — and this year, World Cup soccer (we hear that’s big in Europe, where Irish people are from).
