Siné Irish Pub & Restaurant

1327 E. Cary St.

Second Place: Tobacco Company

Third Place: Southern Railway Taphouse

Shockoe loves Siné. And Siné loves it right back. With an authentic Irish wooden bar, a menu of potato dishes that would make any Irishman proud and live music every weekend, Siné is a destination spot in the Slip. You're bound to see someone you know hanging out on the back patio or dancing up in the front with the bands. And St. Patrick's Day is no joke at Siné, so prepare yourself. The Tobacco Company is a great place to grab a drink after work and take in live, local music on the first floor Thursday through Sunday — free. If dancing is more your thing, the downstairs club is where you'll find the party. Richmond's newest taphouse concept, Southern Railway Taphouse, has been a hit, offering craft beers and a sleek patio.
