  • Paddy Foley's ---- CLOSED ----- (British pubs / Irish pubs / Roppongi)
  • 2008/11/17
  • This pub has large spaces and can be used for group get togethers if you let them know far enough in advance. It's great for sports events and is a nice getaway from typical "Roppongi". The selection of beers is good, but the Newcastle is, unfortunately, refrigerated. Snacks are tasty and their booze selection is solid. Combine this with bartenders who actually know what they're doing, and you've got yourself a pretty solid spot. Just be warned that if you walk in on a weeknight, everyone will turn and stare at you for a minute or two.
  • Hobgoblin : Shibuya (Darts & Pools / Shibuya)
  • 2008/11/10
  • Now under new management, this pub still serves up its own brews alongside many other desirable imports. Finally, they have added Happy Hour from 5 to 7 daily for added enjoyment of said beers. A little on the pricey side, but Happy Hour is a good deal for your money. The staff is all English-speaking and far friendlier than you might expect for a pub. It is a homing beacon to all foreigners in the neighborhood: it could be because the female staff is easy on the eyes, or it could be because they televise virtually all major sporting events, or the amazing nachos that come with a huge dose of real sour cream. Whatever the reason, you'll probably find yourself drawn back time and time again.
