Shay McElroy's Irish Pub

  • 909 Texas Avenue, Suite A
    Houston TX 77002
  • Neighborhood:Downtown
  • Phone: (713) 223-2444

Shay McElroy's in the Rice Lofts building Downtown takes the Irish-pub-in-America concept to a new level. Dublin native and owner John McElroy created the space around a richly detailed, 19th-century bar he had shipped from Ireland.

Shay McElroy’s sits right dab in the middle of all the downtown action. A Metro Train stop is conveniently located at the corner and provides people watchers with a wealth of eye-catching and entertaining passer-by’s.

The crowd at Shay McElroy's is an inviting collection of young professionals and not-so-young merrymakers who enjoy colorful dialogue and witty conversation.

Upon entering the smallish pub, patrons can imagine being thousands of miles away in Dublin. Adding to the atmosphere are lush furnishings McElroy acquired from the historical Rice Hotel's Old Capitol Club. The furniture is reminiscent of what can be found in the nicer watering holes in Ireland, making for the kind of place where any visitor from the Emerald Isle would feel inclined to stop for a pint.
