Pubs: Emmit's fulfills all the requirements for a textbook Irish pub - a great selection of Irish beer, whiskey and scotch, traditional grub like shepherd's pie and live Irish music on weekends. The professional 20-somethings who comprise most of the clientele don't seem to mind this distinct lack of trendiness. Instead, they revel in neighborhood ambiance, high-backed booths and touches of Celtic decor that make Emmit's such a welcoming place to have a pint or two of Guinness and some hot fish and chips. It also features nice flat screens to watch the games. The owner is usually at the entrance greeting his patrons as they arrive which adds to the warm feeling of this place.
