Ireland's music scene may be better known for the pipes than the double bass but The International on Wicklow Street lures its regulars for being the sound box for Dublin's vibrant jazz scene. The basement is where you can catch live gigs each night (head midweek for donation only sets). Looking for less blues and more craic? The pub's third floor also houses Dublin's first comedy club.
What to order: This might seem like Bourbon country but go for a Bushmills.
