Bratislava gets first Irish pub

XXSt. Patrick's Day in Bratislava may never be the same again. That's because the capital city's first genuine Irish pub is scheduled to open on Sedlárska ulica in Old Town at the end of November. Speaking over the midnight din of weekend revelry at Scarlet O'Hara's - one of five pubs the Norton brothers of Ireland have opened over two years in Prague - Peter Norton said he and his brood are more than just banking on the blarney stone as they enter the Slovak market. "We've had a lot of success in Prague," Norton said. "And the drinking and consumption habits [in Bratislava] are similar." Taps at the 120-seat pub neighboring the Hungarian and French embassies will be flowing with Guinness and Slovak beer, while the kitchen dishes out pork, mash, and cabbage, as well as goulash and fried cheese.
