Although we’re often mistaken for one, we have never claimed to be an Irish Pub. True, I’m a Murphy, and my father’s family boarded a boat in Cobh, Co. Cork, to emigrate to Nova Scotia in the 60s. And Terry grew up in a place called Irish town in Newfoundland. But ours is just a cozy little, non-denominational pub – inspired by the classic public houses of Ireland, yes – but also by those excellent pubs found in Scotland and England.
However, the Irish session we host every Sunday evening is a true highlight of the week for us, and so many of our regulars. And this St. Patrick’s Day, we’re happy to host our very own Townhouse Session Players for an extra-special session. They’ll be starting at 6:30pm, and singing lots of traditional Irish songs, as well as the incredible instrumental tunes they’re getting well famous for. The kitchen are working on a bunch of Irish inspired specials for your pleasure, and we’ll be pouring creamy pints of Terry’s dry Irish Stout all night. However, please rest assured – THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO GREEN BEER HERE!
The song session will also kick off an incredible spring full of excellent music coming to us from near and far! Check out the line-up below and mark your calendars! Details for each show will be announced in due time.
