At Maggie Mae’s, you can sit at a long bar while a taxidermied deer stares down at you and Ed Sheeran asks you to take you into his loving arms from the stereo. Think of this Sunnyside spot as an overachieving Irish pub, where you can drink craft beers in a big booth with a galaxy of hanging edison bulbs overhead. Local drafts change every week or two, and on weekends there’s a second bar downstairs with a DJ and dancing.
