Shortt’s Bar

Live music, good craic, tasty burgers

Don’t be fooled by the sober greyish blue exterior of this corner bar near the top of St James’ St. Inside it’s open plan, warm wood and brick — and live music and fun till late, seven days a week. There’s a pretty decking seating area out the back — and a menu which includes meaty and cheesy sharing boards,  some mighty burger options and full roast lunches on Sundays. If you’re curious about performers, there’s usually a weekly, handwritten list of who’s playing when  taped to the front door — and you can check out video clips of some of their popular artists on their Facebook page
