A great place to drink with a purpose. Great juke box, the smell of sweat, red bull, urine and puke.. What more could one ask for in a drunk? If the sailors are in town, they pull up down at Seal Beach, less than a mile away, it can be a fight club. I've seen my fav bar tender (Laurie) go over the bar and get in a 6ft plus tall sailors face.. Exceptional inpromptu theater! Don't miss it!
I go to the Irisher every weekend. Its my favorite bar of all time. My friends and I drink all night, play pool and make fun of people, then we go outside and throw up. Its great. I'm really sad to be moving, I will definatly miss the good old Irisher. Puking in a dark alley will never be the same.
If you are in the lovely town of Seal Beach, and you're not old, there's really only one thing worth doing.
Obviously, it's getting nice and buzzed at home, then going to the Irisher (say it with me: I - rish - er) and closing it down. The prices are cheap, games of pool only cost 3 quarters, and the bartenders will very rarely cut you off even, if you can't stand unassisted. Basically, the greatest place ever.
Two convenient entrances (front, back) located in the heart of Seal Beach. Just two blocks from the delicious Shorehouse Cafe, for those terrific nights where you puke in the back alley and are suddenly hungry afterwards.
Mark McGwire has never been to the Irisher, but I have, and will recommend it to every poor soul who has not uncovered it.
