Mulligans Pub & Sports Club is located in a shopping center just south of Old Town. They advertise as being “voted best pub and best pub food in Fort Collins”. This is the place we go when we need a change from the monotony of the Old Town scene.
Atmosphere: Upon entering you will notice a lot of wood walls, bar and booths. The place is split into two sides, both have bars, but one is the more “sporty” side with pool tables, darts and a jukebox. The sporty side is a little dimmer with lots of HD-TV’s above the bar and high top tables.The brighter side has a more restaurant feel with booths that have small TV’s in them. Either side gives you the laid back feeling of being in an Irish pub. The crowd is mixed in age range, but Mulligans is definitely not the average college haunt.
Drinks: The typical domestics brews are here as well as four- each from the two larger local craft brewers. The sporty side has a nice ice bin under their draft towers, so you know your always going to get a perfectly chilled pint. We opted for the $3 O’dells during their “thirsty Thursday” happy hour. The selection of scotch and Irish whisky was a little on the small side for an Irish pub.
Food: The menu features typical pub style food like sandwich’s, burgers, soups salads, and a few Mexican and Asian inspired dishes stuck in between. With nothing over $11 you should have enough cash left over for dessert. The entrée dinner selection may cost you a few more dollars but the portions are large and worth it. They have an impressive appetizer section with items like hot wings, mussels, jalapeno poppers and brie. During our last visit we had the Reuben sandwich and French dip as recommended by the bartender. Both were delicious and very filling. Or, maybe it was the beers?
Amenities: Touch tunes jukebox, patio in front, pool tables, shuffle board, TV’s, dart boards,fire pit outside, banquet rooms, interactive Wii room, free wifi, trivia, small TV’s in booths.
