Day 133 of 365…
Looking for a little luck o’ the Irish? How about some great food? Maybe some drinks with friends? Live entertainment with no cover charge? Then you should head over to Shanahan’s Pub & Grill downtown Vancouver. After being told I really should stop in and visit them I finally scheduled a lunch meeting there today and they did NOT disappoint. This place is one big family. Everyone seems to know everyone. The entire place is very relaxed and the atmosphere is cool. There is the main dining/bar area and two other rooms as well. The first one has several games and a pool table. Behind that is another bar area where they feature live concerts, game nights and open mic nights. There is also an outdoor seating area at Shanahan’s.
I had The Porker sandwich for my meal and it was awesome. Great pulled pork BBQ with slaw on top. The pork was tender and flavorful and there was no shortage of meat in this sandwich. The meal came with a side of ranch beans and fresh homemade potato chips. These chips rocked! I loved them. My friend ordered a Reuben sandwich and it looked great too. I also grabbed a couple of their new sweet potato fries from my friend Michelle (thanks again) and they are great! I will also let you know they have a drink of the day special so check in often and learn what they have. Today was rum and coke for $3.
From their site…
Shanahan’s Pub is a neighborhood bar that tries to offer more than traditional bars do. We offer all the amenities that other bars offer such as pool tables, darts, pull tabs, and games. We also offer a full menu that tries to offer something for everyone. Whether you like fresh smoked BBQ or are vegan.
We have a large outdoor patio for watching the game that is dog and smoke friendly, as well as a banquet room for private parties and live music.
Shanahan’s is more than “just another bar”…we try to be the “best bar” that we can be. With that in mind, come on down and check us out. What you’ll find is a casual, comfortable atmosphere to have a few drinks and a good meal.
I’d recommend you stop in and get to know everyone at Shanahan’s. Definitely a lot of fun and I’m sure they’re always looking to expand their “family”. They are located at 209 W McLoughlin Blvd Vancouver, WA 98660 and can be reached at 360-735-1440. You’ll locate them on Facebook as well. Go ahead and “like” them. All the cool kids are doing it. 🙂
