Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
With a diverse but unfussy selection of beer on draft, as well as a trio of “dirty” shots (including the infamous “Dirty Finn,” a shot of Tullamore Dew Irish whisky with a dose of spicy pickle juice), Ollie’s is the kind of place you go when you don’t want to worry about what you’re wearing or who’s paying attention – it’s low-key and comfortable. In other words, it’s the perfect place to kick back and tip ’em back with friends.
