As with any authentic Irish bar, Ireland's 32 is just as much focused on presenting lively Celtic music as it is obsessed with serving up tall glasses of Irish ales like Harp, Smithwicks and Guinness. Nightly entertainment includes karaoke and live concerts by roots and country-rock combos like the house band 29 Mules, as well as such Irish-style performers as Ken O'Malley and Sligo Rags. To properly conjure the spirit of the Emerald Isle, much of the Van Nuys bar is suffused with green light, which is emitted from antique lamp posts and stained-glass windows. The walls alternate between warm wood paneling and hard stonework, and the low-ceiling room is made airier with mirrors and strands of white Christmas lights. The grill offers basic bar fare like steak, chicken wings, sandwiches and fish & chips, but the weekend menu features a hearty Irish breakfast. The clientele at Ireland's 32 is more working class than hip, and an older crowd is drawn to the traditional Celtic music nights, while younger folks show up for the rock-and-pop-themed karaoke battles. The full bar has an extensive selection of European beers and spirits, and the prices are generally moderate. Ages 21 & over. Street parking.
