Cavan Irish Pub has a squarish bar with 9 (count 'em) video screens and a dart machine near the bathrooms. The bar area is a bit snug but they managed to squeeze a small stage in one corner. When I was there on Sat. 3/2/24, there was a mixed crowd and a DJ spinning awesome music! One bartender looked like Ricky Martin. :) There were gogo boys but none to write home about except for hot muscle twunk Diablo. There was no cover and I spent $8.00 for a rum and coke. I would probably go back.
