Flannery’s obsession with pouring perfect 20-ounce pints of Guinness (or any other tap beer), the friendliness and the location across from Quickens Loans Arena draw in crowds after a Cavs or an Indians game—either for a mood boost after losing or elation after a win. It’s also the number-one hotspot on St. Patrick’s Day, when everyone in Cleveland turns Irish. Flannery’s Irish-pub approach to food and drink, its rich wood and stained-glass details and ample space for elbow room make this a well-established crowd-pleaser for folks who like beer and company. Fifteen imported beers are on tap, along with several whisky and malt liquor choices for the discerning. The served-until-midnight pub grub includes Irish favorites, like a corned beef on fresh-baked-rye sandwich. On weekends, the live music is a major draw. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch The New Barleycorn. These two Irish guys are longtime performers, whose Celtic music puts them in high demand.
