Four Green Fields Irish Pub is closing its original Tampa location

With plans to open new location in Channelside in the near future.


Irish pub, Four Green Fields, recently took to social media to announce its closing date, but have no fear because the original thatched roof's legacy will live on at a forthcoming location near Channelside.

"December 12th will be our final night at our Platt St location. Lots of fond memories for many but no need to be sad, our new location will be opening very soon & our amazing staff is coming with us," the post on Wed., Dec. 2 read accompanied by a photo of John Lennon hand in hand with Yoko Ono. Four Greens also boasts locations two other Tampa Bay locations within Amalie Arena and Tampa International Airport.

According to its website, Four Green Fields opened its doors in 1992 in Tampa as America’s only authentic thatched roof Irish Pub. The joint is known for its traditional Irish dishes like shepherd's pie and corn beef and cabbage, alongside a serious lineup of pints. 

The restaurant has also famously hosted musical legends like Sinead O’Connor, The Wolfe Tones, Paddy Reilly as well as the late Tommy Makem. 

A rep from Four Green Fields told Creative Loafing Tampa that the restaurant does not have an official grand opening date in mind for the forthcoming Channelside location. Until then, be sure to swing by for your final sips and goodbyes to Four Green's OG hutch on Platt St. (or visit the other Four Green Fields in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park).
