A large enough venue that you can bring a group, the food is unpretentious and tasty and not too expensive, but the real draw is the live music. I was there for an open jam blues night (Thursdays) with Jed Rached and they really rocked....More

A cozy spot with plenty of taps. We stopped in for a late night beer and this spot did not disappoint.

Well-known local venue for live music. Irene's has been in business since 1985. Fully accessible with accessible washroom on ground floor, just ask anyone in bar to help by positioning wheelchair ramp at entrance for access. We also have a secret patio out back open during warmer weather, car and bus exhaust free and private. Great food and kitchen open till midnight.
