So during my lunch hour, I moseyed down the street to the new O’Shea’s on Main Street, right before Bearno’s By the Bridge. I entered the building at my own risk and was met with manager Bruce, who was busy with last-minute prepping for tonight’s soft opening (5 p.m.). By soft I mean beer only, no food, just to get the taps warmed up and the stools broken in.
Bruce was kind enough to take me on a tour of the two-level bar, which was amazing. They’re still finishing up the upper level, but as I said earlier, the first-floor main bar will be open beginning tonight. Like its sister bars — Flanagan’s, O’Shea’s, Brendan’s — this downtown O’Shea’s is impeccably designed and offers several rooms, bars, private-party areas and dance rooms. Beer is king here, as it should be, but there’ll also be a fully-stocked bar as well as a coffee and deli area for morning and daytime downtown dwellers.
Here are some shots I got with my camera … and speaking of shots … is it 5 o’clock yet?
