What’s an Irish pub without Irish music? Named after first generation Irish immigrant Bessie Dee Riley, B.D. Riley’s retains a bit of Old World charm before the street descends into the shot bars of Dirty Sixth. Residencies include rock & roll harp from the Kristen Gibbs band and the mandolin of Donnybrook leader Davey Arwine, but there’s music every night from Austin performers, including the harmonic free-for-all of the Sunday night Irish tune session, and Monday’s Celtic-flavored open mic. Sláinte!
