The difference between visiting this bar on a weekday and weekend is drastically different. On the weekdays, it is slow and quiet, and fun, live, irish music can be seen/heard. Even the workers are mostly irish, contributing to the bar's authentic irish vibe. The weekends though are another story. I visited once on a weekend and was charged $5 to get into a very, crowded bar filled with un-somerville-type bostonians. All in all though, this bar is a fun time. .
