Connolly's On Fifth
As much as I want to support my favorite bar Belfast, I have to say Connolly's serves the best Guinness on draft hands down in Charlotte. From the pour to the clover leaf it is exceptional done, even when it's busy af they still produce a quality pint. It is to be assumed given that it is one of the few true Irish pubs in Charlotte. My favorite thing about Connolly however is the fact that one day you can enjoy a random conversation with some guy while playing chess then the next you're dancing to club music on the weekends upstairs. It's such an experience you just have to give it a try.
Friendly staff, great week day crowd. Never a bad time. Oh and beer was cold! Get a guiness.
Had a great time with our friends... Great drinks and a fun atmosphere.. the staff is very outgoing... Soon as you sit down it's like everyone's long lost watering hole.. we highly recommend to anyone..
When one thinks of an Irish bar, the general assumption is that there will be good pours, good service, and a very nice kind of "old school" ambiance. That said, Connolly's could be used as a prime example of the genre! Lots of good music played at just the right volume (most of it Gaelic), a fine selection of liquors, including The Balvenie Doublewood . The friendly bartender exhibited a wisdom beyond his years for his professional treatment of his patrons, which is a quality sadly lacking in most places today. If you want to visit an Irish bar that lends the illusion that it's St Pat's every day, this is the place... an absolute must for visitors in Charlotte... Thank You!
Always a great night here and the bartenders are so amazing and friendly! Love chatting with those guys!
