The atmosphere is festive and very Irish from the food to the whiskey to the Irish music. This pub is just what Georgetown needs and it is not phony!

I know they bring Irish staff over to learn about American culture while also bringing a little of “the motherland” that you talk about. the same writer of this piece will be dressed head to toe in green next St Patrick’s day claiming the roots off his or hers great great great great granddad who once knew someone Irish. Embrace the pub and judge once they have at least opened their doors. Ádh mór ort RìRà.

The closest thing you have to a motherland is New Jersey.

It’s fine as far as bars go, it’s got a dark woodsy interior, and to be honest, it’ll be a whole lot more interesting than most of the bars currently in Georgetown. Not sure why Vox has to hate on it so quickly.

But when a dozen for-real Irish college students who we hosted came down with food poisoning after eating at the Bethesda branch, I can assure you that I’ll never be a patron. That is the problem every chain needs to confront. One bad experience taints all. Should you see a dead cockroach in your Quarter Pounder with Cheese, I’m confident that would turn you off McDonalds for life.

Every town needs a good Irish bar, so let’s hope the owner sticks to his claim that he will be using materials from the mother land. I really hope it is not cheesy. PLEASE. Do something to attract and please the residents of DC, and not turn it into a circus act like Serendipity.

For the record, GM doesn’t think Ri Ra will be a bad addition. […]

I hope they have Amstel.
