Boston's most famous Irish pub, the Black Rose Pub, is celebrating halfway to St. Patrick's Day on Saturday, September 17, 2011. Festivities feature Joshua Tree, the premier tribute band to U2, who perform starting at 9:30 p.m.
The event is one of the many Black Rose 35th anniversary celebrations taking place in 2011. The Rose opened at 160 State Street in Boston in 1976, when Richard Ford was US President and a few months before Faneuil Hall first opened. Since then it has gained a world-wide following, and offers live Irish music seven nights a week, a great menu and drinks selection, and a special ambiance that keeps people coming back.
Today the Black Rose Pub is owned by Glynn Hospitality Group, a family-run business with roots in County Galway, which has eight dining and entertainment locations in Boston.
