To make every guest feel a wee bit happier

Our Pubs

The Local celebrates over two decades of enduring loyalty and adoration for its many offerings, from an 80-foot bar featuring a hand-carved back bar, nooks and crannies for exchanging secrets, and ample space in the Whiskey Lounge for telling flat-out lies. Celebrate the highs and the lows in our private rooms.

The Liffey opened in February 2003. The pub was built in Dublin, Ireland before being constructed here in St. Paul. The Liffey was chosen as the name to celebrate both our proximity to the Mississippi river and our cultural ties to Dublin.

Cooper marked our first venture to the “edge of town” in 2009. Our name comes from two very important sources. A cooper is a whiskey barrel-maker, without whose craft we could not enjoy the “water of life”, uisce beatha. Additionally, the much-loved and revered original Cooper Theater stood near our hallowed corner from 1962 to 1991.

Kieran’s Irish Pub has been the original Irish experience in downtown Minneapolis since 1994. Whether you’re looking for live music or a quiet corner to sip a dram of whiskey, our friendly staff will make you feel right at home.
