The Plough & Stars, San Francisco, CA

The Plough & Stars Restaurant Review

: No food is served at this raucous Irish tavern, but that doesn't keep out the crowds. On offer: pints of Guinness, pool tables, whiskey and an enormous space in which to engage in Irish-style set dancing and listen to live bluegrass, folk or Irish music. Packed nightly with young and old patrons alike, many from Ireland herself.
