An Irish snug in Clawson

In Victorian-era Ireland, the pubs were almost exclusively for men and a woman drinking in public, though legal, was quite scandalous. But that doesn’t mean that all Irish women never drank – some enjoyed their drinks in a slightly less conspicuous way which was inside a small, screened-off room attached to the bar, called “the snug.” Over a 100 years later, and paying homage to its Irish roots, Clawson newcomer, Gus’ Snug, offers two snugs – but no worries, the snugs are just for posterity and offer a unique private dining space for all. The pub, which opened in the space formerly occupied by Lucky Duck, has been redesigned to include a cozy brick interior, leather upholstered booth seating, high-tops and a long bar which seats 18. The bar menu includes a full array of Irish and domestic beers as well as an extensive whiskey menu boasting over 60 Irish whiskeys featuring rare finds such as Redbreast Sherry Cask, Bushmills 25 Year and Middleton Very Rare. There is also a selection of wines and Irish-inspired cocktails like Classic Irish Coffee, Dublin Old Fashion, Irish Margarita and Kerry Pippin. On the food side of the menu, not only will patrons find typical pub fare such as burgers, sandwiches and salads, but also a large offering of Irish dishes. Traditional Irish favorites include corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, Guinness stew, Harp crisped fish & chips and salmon O’Connor. Gus’ Snug hosts live entertainment in the form of traditional Irish music on Sundays from 5-8 p.m. and alt rock and acoustics acts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7-10 p.m. 38 S. Main Street, Clawson
