The Dubliner: Best Pub in St. Paul

Ton Scanlon, The Dubliner Pub

“There are three essential ingredients to a quality drinking establishment: a clientele that spans from the aged to the recently licensed to drink, friendly bartenders who won’t leave you hanging on a refill, and a vibe without pretense or airs. This is the Dubliner in a nutshell. It’s a no-frills place packed within the industrial district of western St. Paul. The beer is plentiful, the shots of respectable girth, and the atmosphere welcoming to one and all. It’s not unusual to find bands of Irish dancers high-stepping across the floor. On most nights, traditional live music fills their air. Bagpipers in full regalia occasionally stop by. In other words, this isn’t a joint that slaps up some shamrocks and a Guinness sign and calls itself Irish. This is the real McCoy, St. Paul-style. Which, according to four out of five leading barflies, is the best style ever invented.”
