Dublin's Irish Bar and Grill located next to CSUN is a great student hang out. Its location is key for students being conveniently located next to campus for a short walk, a liquor store where you can buy cigarettes and a laundromat so you can get a drink while doing laundry.
The staff is friendly and good-looking and if you engage them in conversation they are likely to offer you a free creatively made shot. The female bartenders and cocktail waitresses are very friendly, wear short shorts and show a good amount of cleavage. They are however annoying uninformed about their menu and prices and even have a hard time even adding up your bill.
