Conor Byrne information
A bit of old Ballard they chose to leave behind (or perhaps just forgot about), Conor Byrne is a raffish Irish pub bivouacked in an old terracotta-brick building that has been a bar of some sort since its inception in 1904 (it was briefly reincarnated as a ‘cafe’ during prohibition). It’s best known for its Guinness and regular live music.
