Irish pub

Would you like to enjoy a night of great food and unforgettable fun? Then head to one of these local Irish pubs near Fairlane Woods Apartments, where you’ll find everything from Guinness stew to lively rounds of trivia.

Nancy Whiskey 

A Corktown mainstay since 1902, Nancy Whiskey survived Prohibition and holds one of the oldest liquor licenses in Detroit. The pub is known for hosting some of the best parties in town. On Whiskey Wednesday, the jukebox and darts are free, and the best bands entertain on Fridays and Saturdays. The chefs start their day early to prepare everything from scratch. Choices include hearty sandwiches such as corned beef or stacked ham and whiskey burgers topped with bacon and pepper jack cheese.

The Old Shillelagh 

The Old Shillelagh transports diners to the Emerald Isle with its authentic decor and genuine hospitality. Owner John Brady enjoys sharing his heritage with his adopted hometown. He grew up in Dublin and later came to Detroit to work as a police officer. Every Friday and Saturday, the band Black Mist takes to the stage. They have performed here for the last nineteen years, and their traditional Irish tunes will have you tapping your toes. Menu offerings include vegan shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, and “Shillelagh Burgers.” 

McShane’s Irish Pub 

McShane’s Irish Pub adds a modern flair to the traditional Irish public house vibe. It’s the perfect place to watch Detroit’s sports teams with a lively crowd. Wednesdays feature singer-songwriter open mic night while Thursdays bring a challenging evening of trivia. In the kitchen, the chefs prepare time-honored recipes from the finest, freshest ingredients. Offerings include Irish pub pot roast, fish and chips, and “Pot o’ Gold Pie.” They all pair well with the Irish ale–battered pickles and a perfectly poured pint of Guinness
