The story of O'Bryan's Nine Irish Brothers begins 30 years ago, when the founder and principal owner, Jerry O'Bryan, opened the Hairman, a local styling salon that has since become a campus icon. Jerry told his wife, Jan, that if the hair business didn't work out, he wanted to open an Irish pub. The hair business did end up working out, but thirty years, two children and a grandchild later, Jerry finally decided it was time to realize his dream, an authentic Irish pub serving traditional Irish fare, Guinness by the pint, and featuring live music and the friendly, up-beat atmosphere typical of Irish pubs world-wide.
Irish pubs (short for "public house") have long been the gathering place of friends and co-workers, family and teammates. A rainy afternoon or evening in Ireland will find people gathering in the local pub to have a pint, listen to music, dance, warm up by the fire, and tell stories. The idea of coming together with friends old and new is what we strive to replicate. Our goal is to be the place of choice for gathering with friends to share good conversation, good food and drink, and lively music in a friendly and upbeat environment.
Unlike many of the "Irish Pub Concept" pubs popping up here and there, Nine Irish Brothers is family-owned, family-designed-and-built, and family-run. Over the course of several trips to Ireland, we've been able to hand-pick the furniture and decor. We've also spent an inordinate amount of time "researching" pubs in Ireland and have based our pub on our favorite spots, from Garvey's on Ayre's Square in Galway to Johnnie Fox's on the Northern outskirts of Dublin. Stop by and ask for one of the family to show you around!
