Where We Watch says: This is whatcha call "a diamond in the rough." While the two bars across the street --- Ginger Man and Galway Hooker --- get more attention, Slattery's is two levels, will play audio, is not typically crowded, and offers a highly underrated and diverse base of sports fandom. For example, recently we met a diehard Seattle Mariners fan at the bar. Those guys are rare on the I-95 corridor, but it led to some spirited discussion. Give Slattery's a shot for your next must-watch sporting event. Bartenders are some of the nicest people around; you'll definitely get more buybacks than you expect.
