Great bar, great service, great birthday – I had my birthday party here last weekend and had a great time. I reserved a few tables upstairs (for free) which was well worth it since it got pretty crowded by the end of the night. Regardlss, we all loved the bar, the dancing, the drink prices, and had an overall great time. The staff was very accommodating and helpful when my friend lost her purse, which was very much appreciated. I will definitely be coming back again soon, and will recommend this bar to my friends and coworkers.
Waste of Time – I will never go back. Staff was extremely rude and the food was awful. It's a shame given the place has a lot of potential.
Soccer Central – What a great bar especially for watching soccer! I know I am not European but it is always fun to come here, get Irish brunch and watch some European soccer games.
In addition, they play regular football, College basketball games and so on. There are two floors and the top floor turns into a lounge/dance area on weekend nights.
There is always good music, good flow of drinks going around and no cover charge at all times!
Bouncers are Morons – Could be the biggest bunch of morons handling the line in the city. One guy, who looks like Shrek, got roid rage while I was in line and chased off half the line. Will never go back, my second bad experience with the bouncers there.
Great place to host an event!! – I planned a very successful after-work fundraiser for a client at The Central Bar. The upstairs space is beautifully decorated, with a lounge and bar area, in addition to DJ booth. Service was great and food and drink prices didn't break the budget. I would definitely plan another event here.
Cheap Eats, Good drinks!! – Food and drink prices are reasonable. Cool atmosphere. Good service.
It'll quickly become one of your regular hangouts – This place has become one of my staples - they have some of the best bar food I've ever had! Fully stacked bar, friendly staff, no attitude like a lot of other popular bars in the city. Great place to chill for a beer after work or hang out on a Sunday. Also came out to watch a soccer game, this has gotta be the best place in town to do it!
Very cool, great vibe – This place was awesome! I came with a group of girls for a hot night on out, we had a blast! We thought we'd stay for a drink or 2 but ended having so much fun that we stayed all night! There's an awesome DJ on saturday, we danced our asses off!! Come here for drinks, you'll definitely have fun!
Pretentious Line for an Irish Pub, NOT WORTH YOUR TIME – I have never seen anything in the city more awful then this....... This is an Irish Pub, Guinness Sign on the front and all, yet they feel the need to hold a line with literally black rope around it, when the bar is not even full for status quo. On top of this the door men, and yes that's right there are door men for the pub, are rude and degrading. I have been to my fair share of trendy clubs and have never experienced such awful people. The bar itself is a dingy, small run of the mill bar. I would suggest keep walking, Central Bar is nowhere to even waste your time. They might want to consider going back to their roots.
