Picking the best neighborhood bar from a city of neighborhoods and bars seems unfair. How could one person judge a space that others have spent decades building? How do you judge a place at which it's hard to say where the structure stops and the soul begins? It's not like we're talking about churches or houses, places people think of as being alive, right? A bar is a bar, a place where people get sauced and talk smack. Well, you know a living bar when you walk into it. There's a distinct friendly and welcoming energy at O'Hara's. Folks in the Belair Road area have built themselves a great spot in which to hang out and drink and, when the weather's nice, play horseshoes and munch on pit beef sandwiches from the nearby stand. It's awfully arrogant of us to say this neighborhood bar is the best, but it's no long shot to say O'Hara's is the model of what a great neighborhood bar should be: a place that feels like it could be built off the back of your house. And for that, it deserves a plaque on the wall.
