Thrillist just named the best small town bar in every state, and Maine's representative is Leary's Landing Irish Pub, located in Bar Harbor!

Leary's Landing Irish Pub, located at 2 Mount Desert Street in Bar Harbor will be open this weekend, and next weekend (Easter weekend) and then closing for the month of April as they move to their new location at 156 Main Street, just a stone's throw away from their current location. They expect to reopen in May with their own kitchen and more space, promising to be bigger and better while maintaining their charm!

According to Thrillist

As the self-proclaimed "Closest Irish Pub to Ireland in the US," this small-town watering hole takes its whiskey very, very seriously. As it should -- when you're dealing with an average wintertime low of 13.6 degrees, you're going to need all the liquid hugs you can get. The list is 50-deep, filling everything from shot glasses to snifters and house barrel-aged cocktails, if you're feeling fancy. Decor-wise, it's classic Irish pub all the way: green walls, dark wood furniture, a bar table fashioned from a Guinness barrel, and knick-knacks harkening back to the Emerald Isle. It's cozy as all get out, of course, with killer fish and chips, lots of old-timey board games to fuel your drinking, and a weekly trivia night that attracts a serious portion of the town's 5,235 residents.
