Best Irish Pub That Survived the Quarantine: McArthur's Irish Pub

McArthur's Irish Pub

McArthur’s was scheduled to open just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, and owner Arthur Paula pushed hard and did everything he could to see to it that the pub made its deadline. With live music featuring authentic Irish musicians, traditional Irish fare, and proper Guinness (I can vouch for it myself, after enjoying many a pint in the Emerald Isle), McArthur’s opened full of good vibes and Irish cheer. And then COVID-19 hit. The business took a hit with the quarantine and forced closure, but the staff held strong and was able to stay afloat. Now that businesses are opening up again, McArthur’s is the perfect place to celebrate. McArthur’s has a great vibe and lives up to its claim: “At McArthur’s, ‘the craic is mighty!’” mcarthursirishpub.com —Resie Waechter
