John D. McGurk's Irish Pub

McGurk’s is a long-standing, St. Louis pub-house institution. Opened in 1978 with just one room, the venue now includes four brick and wood-clad rooms inside and a beautiful garden patio and an all-season enclosed patio outside. The entire menu is prepared with an expert hand, but McGurk’s is perhaps best known for its steak and burgers. Friends old and new gather at this traditional hang out for pints of Guinness and traditional Irish music seven nights a week. Its accolades are well-deserved: one of Esquire Magazine’s Best Bars in America, on Thrill’s List of the 21 Best Irish Pubs in the US and one of Road Trippers’ Best Irish Pubs in the US.
