Nine Fine Irishmen is an awesome two-story Irish pub with an outdoor patio located inside the New York New York Hotel and Casino. The interior is cozy, dark and gives a very authentic old pub vibe. In fact, the pub was actually built in Ireland and then shipped to Vegas, so it is as authentic as you can get without physically being in Ireland. Named after the nine nationalists noted for their fight in Irish Independence, you will instantly feel the Irish pride as soon you step through the doors.

What makes this place even better is that there is nightly entertainment, featuring their Irish house band, Sin e Ri Ra. They perform fantastic traditional Irish tunes and even have a live step-dancer, Tara Reid to accompany the music. Since Nine Fine Irishmen is a restaurant until 11:00pm and the band starts around 9:00pm or 10:00pm, you can squeeze an hour or two of live music in with the kids.
