Despite being named after the old Irish gangster neighborhood on the Lower East Side, Sixth Ward is surprisingly congruous within its present setting. A yellow-lit hive of activity greets you at the entrance, where there’s nearly always a maitre’d or staff member to follow up with a heart-warming “hello.” Clad in old brick and understated timber, the interior carries through a rustic theme, on into the deceptively spacious enclosed beer garden. Sixth Ward’s Celtic vibe and casual atmosphere influence a relatively mixed age crowd, many non the happier than soaking up a sunset out back. Ales run the gamut of choice – Guinness being the dominant seller. Gastronomes won’t find a sizzling sirloin anywhere on the menu, since the restaurant keeps its offerings as toned down as the decor – burgers, fries and buffalo wings abound!
