The Curragh Irish Pub

This Irish pub, which takes its name from a famous horse-racing track in Kildare, Ireland, recently hauled its made-in-Ireland fixtures from the northwest suburbs to this cozier space in Edison Park. Catch all matter of Irish sports and European futbol (that's soccer) games on strategically placed TVs around this quaint, multi-roomed bar. The pub's attracted a wide range of bargoers--from just-turned-21 locals to seniors--to sip on all the imports you'd expect, including Guinness, Bass, Harp and Smithwick's. Snack on boxties (potato pancakes stuffed with veggies, chicken or seafood) and Irish stew, or more American fare such as burgers, wings and steaks. Bonus: There's also a surprisingly wide range of wines by the glass. When the weather's fair, a partially covered front patio seats 70.
