E-mail Print PDF

Daniel O'Connell's Restaurant.ALEXANDRIA, VA – On historic King Street in Alexandria, Daniel O’Connell’s Restaurant draws from both Irish and American history for a memorable pub experience. Nestled in a 19th-century building in Alexandria’s Old Town district and featuring a collection of antiques and artifacts directly from Ireland, it takes its name from a 19th-century Irish parliamentarian and reformer. The restaurant is the vision of Irish-born entrepreneurs John Brennan and Billy O’Sullivan. When the duo sought to improve the sound quality for both their digital music playback and live Irish music sets, they reached out to Randy White, a Senior Buyer at Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center, to design a system that would meet their needs. White recommended a powerful, compact and efficient system featuring Powersoft amplification.
