I have to admit, I’m a sucker for Irish pubs.  While traveling through Europe, I had a saying that if we couldn’t find a good place to eat or drink, go to the local Irish pub. We’ll, this very thing happened to me this past weekend, while cruising around “The Pike” in Long Beach, Ca. Not interested in paying a cover charge to get into a crammed club with bad music, I stumbled upon the Auld Dubliner which is great if you’re looking for a relaxing pub with great live music, good food, and a pint of Guinness.

On entering the pub you’ll be shocked by how awesome it looks.  According to their website the interior of the pub was “hand crafted” in Dublin which I don’t know if I really believe but that’s what the website says. The pub is relatively large for a pub with the restaurant and seating area surrounding the bar in the middle. The size was good because it allowed for the band to not be ridiculously loud.

At first I was somewhat frustrated trying to buy drinks at the bar because it felt like there was no bartender but a bartender did show up and he explained to me they were short staffed that night. For some reason the people working at the Auld Dubliner were really nice which it’s very typical in the “bar” setting. After we sat down at a table a waitress came over to us for drink orders and gave us Jenga to play if we wanted to, which we did!

The best part of the Auld Dubliner for me was the live music.  The band they had playing was great, playing a wide range of songs from traditional Irish music to the typical Flogging Molly songs as well as some Country/Bluegrass music. They have live music every evening and the bands play until late at night.

Overall the atmosphere at the Auld Dubliner was great. The people were friendly and if you are looking for a classic Irish Pub setting with good food, all the beer you can think of and great live music I highly recommend checking out the Auld Dubliner!
