When the bars in Yonkers are closing, the bars in Riverdale are just beginning to swing. Only steps across the border, An Beal Bocht is an Irish pub that refuses to be defined. The eclectic establishment is host to plays, book signings, and jazz. Located at 445 W. 238th street in Riverdale, Bronx An Beal is a mecca for music enthusiasts.
Groups vary from traditional Irish bands to rock blues. There is no cover and no minimum. And with drinks starting at only $6 you can afford the cab ride home. The food menu offers enough variety to whet the appetite of even the most hard to please palate.
The blues band featured in the video, Blue Vision, brought the crowd to their feet on a busy Saturday night. And if they look familiar, it is because the band leader is a Yonkers' resident. So cross the border and check it out. An Beal is open until 4 am seven days a week.
