Jezebel Magazine: May 2012
For its grand opening, our Brookhaven location was featured in Jezebel magazine.
Inside is a wonderland of imported antiques, stained glass and hand-carvings that date back to the 19th century. “Our library seating area is from France, circa 1940,” Dezell says. “Some of our leaded glass, floors and paneling are 250 years old from Europe.” Pop-culture tchochkes also adorn the authentic pub. Take the replica of Mel Gibson in Braveheart—blue face paint and all—standing as its centerpiece, or a multileveled seating area featuring “snugs” (tucked-away spots for privacy). Celtic music; staff sporting black-collared shirts, plaid skirts, even kilts; and a cobblestoned road, complete with street signs and tables for two also hit upon tradition. Read full article here
