McGonigel’s starts off as a straightforward Irish pub—Black and Tans, pints of Guinness, beef stew with more Guinness. In keeping with Irish pub tradition, The Duck then adds a fine roster of folk, country and traditional musicians in an acoustically impressive room. It’s the kind of place where, after a few pints, you might be inclined to grab a couple of spoons and join in with whoever’s on stage, whether its the weekly round of traditional Irish music or legendary steel player Junior Brown.
