The Dubliner Getting Nice Little Indoor/Outdoor Addition

Thanks to Grant for sending some action at The Dubliner: “They have the windows that fold to the side.”

For those not familiar with The Dubliner:

“Welcome to The Dubliner Restaurant & Pub – if you love Ireland you’ll love The Dubliner.

America’s premier Irish pub. The Dubliner was established in 1974 in the best of a long barkeeping tradition. My father, an Irish immigrant, opened Coleman’s Saloon in 1933 atop Tipperary Hill in Syracuse, New York. Our pride in our Celtic heritage even extended to the neighborhood traffic light – the only light of its kind to have the green light on top of the red. My brother Peter continues the tradition at the same location to this date.

In keeping with that pride and tradition, we have recreated an authentic Dublin City Pub. The Dubliner could easily occupy a corner of O’Connell Street as Massachusetts Avenue. Many of our friendly staff are fresh from Ireland and as colorful as any character in James Joyce’s Dubliners, for which our pub is proudly named.

Our authenticity extends to the wonderful beers we serve – we are one of America’s largest purveyor of Guinness Stout, and the only purveyor of Auld Dubliner Amber Ale, a wonderful brew made exclusively for The Dubliner. We added the legendary Smithwick’s Ale to our offerings when it became available in America and we were the first Pub in the country to serve the fabulous Killkenny Irish Cream Ale. Recently, we partnered with a historic distillery in Ireland to produce The Dubliner Irish Whiskey, a smooth drinking blended whiskey aged in American Oak bourbon casks. The Dubliner is a great addition to our already impressive whiskey collection with over 100 of the finest Irish whiskies in the world.

Our famous libations are accompanied by hearty Hibernian fare – from our world famous Fish n’ Chips to our Irish Beef Stew. Everyday our Executive Chef Hugo Malone transforms fresh seafood, vegetables and select meats into wonderful daily specials.

When the sun goes down, The Dubliner lights up, as Irish entertainers perform each night. From soulful ballads and airs to rousing jigs and reels – we offer the very best in Irish entertainment seven nights a week.

Over the years, we have expanded to create america’s Center of Irish Hospitality with the recently renovated Phoenix Park Hotel. Today we are a Capitol Hill institution, welcoming guests who recognize that, in the words of the great Irish statesman, Daniel O’Connell, “The hospitality of an Irishman… springs, like all of his qualities, his faults, his virtues, directly from the heart”.

If I am not around, please say hello to my son Gavin or nephew Danny – our 3rd generation Publicans – who are running the show these days.

To all our guests – Cead Mile Failte – A Hundred Thousand Welcomes. Enjoy your pint, your meal and the music.

Daniel J. Coleman, Founder/Publican”
