Step inside this pub with dark wooden walls and brass fixtures and you may forget that you are in Southern Texas, and not at the Temple Bar in Dublin. Of course you'll find Guinness behind the bar just as you'll find other beers from the island like Smithwick's and Harp. Just ask your bartender to pull one out of the tap in the proper way with a white, foamy top. A pub in every sense of the word, there is even live music throughout the week.
