AILTE (pronounced falcha) means “welcome” in Gaelic. Pete and John welcome you to Molly’s, established in 1960 and the most traditional Irish bar in New York. Complete with sawdust on the floor and a log-burning fireplace. Renowned for its Shepherd’s Pie, hamburgers, and steaks, all for a reasonable price, Molly’s is a long-time favorite with locals and a destination for newcomers.

Swift was established in 1995 by Danny McDonald and Mike Jewell and later joined by Anthony Malone. Swift quickly became known for their cornucopia of beer styles from here and abroad, one of the finest selections of Irish whiskey in the city, and, of course, its often-applauded for their attention to detail.
