Behan's Pub

4299 Katonah Ave
Bronx, NY 10470


"However good the drinking, thirst is how it ends"—or so says an old Irish Gaelic expression. Test out the theory by pulling up a stool at this classic pub, where you can find many of the neighborhood's Irish locals having a cold one. While light beer is a popular choice at the pub, enjoy a glass of Ireland's finest (Guinness, of course) while reading excerpts from 20th-century Irish author Brendan Behan—the bar's namesake—on the wall. Stick around late enough and watch as the pub turns into a dance club.
