Malarky's Irish Pub sits on the famed Newport Peninsula - across the street from Mama D's and Rudy's Pub & Grill. Malarky's is a great place to grab a beer and hang out with friends. The night scene is really fun and super casual.
Two dart boards hang on the wall across from the bar. Perfect for groups to team up and host a friendly game. Beers are served in milk bottles - yes, milk bottles. You're not allowed to take the milk bottles home, but if you ask nicely - the bartenders might let you buy them! :)
The front of the bar fills up with beach cruisers; patrons riding by and parking to come in for a drink (or five). The atmosphere is fun and friendly. I usually wear jeans, gladiator sandals and a top. I always take a clutch... in the event that a dart game comes up, I want to be prepared!
While many times you can find yourself bar hopping on the Peninsula, I like to spend a lot of time at Malarky's, as there is ample bar seating and the people are awesome - we somehow always come away with more friends than we came with.
If you're looking for a great time, I'd highly recommend Malarky's.
