“O'Hara's is a sports bar, and there are TVs everywhere that are always showing games. We went here to watch the Super Bowl a few years ago, and it was a lot of fun. But they also have seating and a full menu, and the food is surprisingly good. It's also open very late (way past midnight) if you're up then and are looking for a place to go.”
