Connolly’s has a nice, authentic feel to it, with dark wood wainscoting on the walls, black tin ceiling and hardwood flooring with the bar’s name etched into it. There’s lots of space, with two different levels, both with their own bar. The top level has a smattering of tables in addition to the L-shaped bar, and there is a stage up front, where live music—often Irish bands—entertain guests on weekends. On Tuesdays, you’ll also see one of Greenville’s favorite Irishmen, Marty Flynn, on that same stage hosting trivia. The lower level is more open, with a handful of dartboards and a few tables. The place gets loud early, with friends and strangers mingling jovially with each other.
