Johnnie Fox's Irish Snug

in Downtown & West End

The glass front means you can peer through the windows before committing to this small Granville St Irish pub. You'll find a gaggle of beer-swilling fellas having a grand old time to a soundtrack of live or recorded Celtic tunes. A lively spot for a Guinness (especially on weekends), it has a menu of pub-grub classics (filled Yorkshire puddings recommended).

There's live music of the toe-tapping variety four nights a week here, and Sunday evening's $12 roast dinner special is a good deal.
