AOL Travel Editor's Review

One of Beale Street's most-crowded hangouts, this cavernous fake Irish pub is known for three things. First is the house cocktail known as the "Diver"—a mysterious high-proof concoction served in a plastic bucket. Drink one, and suddenly karaoke begins to seem like a very good idea. Second is Barbra Blue, the bar's resident singer. Shout out a request—any request—and she'll sing it right back to you. She's on in the late afternoon or early evening from Wednesday through Sunday. Third are the goats. Yes, the goats. In a pen in the courtyard, the poor beasts suffer the indignity of being ogled by drunks day in and day out. Go say hi, but please, don't try to feed them your beer. The crowd is mixed in age, mostly out-of-towners looking to have a raucous good time.
