Lily Flanagan's Irish Pub
345 Deer Park Ave. Babylon, NY 631-539-0816
Even on the less-busier weekdays, there's always a steady crowd who enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of Lily Flanagan's. Expect a more mature group of party people (25- to 40-year-olds). Not that the 21-year-olds don't hang here as well, but be sure and dress well; skip the sneakers and baggy stuff or face likely rejection at the door.
Dining tends to take place in the front of the building, which is otherwise divided by two large 360-degree bars with a large space in between them that serves as the dancing area. Out back is a patio that's nestled between the pub and the neighboring railroad embankment.
Drinks cost an average of $3 to $8 and happy hour is Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. There are frequent live bands plus DJs who play music that favors the '80s, '90s and recent hits.
In terms of food, there are burgers, steaks and other pub grub, along with specialty Irish dishes like shepherd's pie.Hours:
