Venue Info

Original owners John and Anne McGinley wasted no time establishing their Irish pub the Golden Ace Inn just four months after Prohibition ended, and the party hasn’t stopped since. Live Irish music is a weekly staple here, as are the Golden Ace’s famed burgers (they’re cooked in 60-year-old cast iron skillets), and both bring locals together in a routine of clapping, singing, stomping, and chomping. Keep in mind that the vintage register only takes cash – after all, it’s been around since 1934.
