The Black Rose Pub • Boston

For the past 40 years, Boston’s Black Rose Pub has been serving up pints of Guinness and traditional Irish Fare as the city’s premier Irish Pub and restaurant. The name comes from a 17th-century poem by an unknown author who writes about “Roisin Dubh” – a small black rose.

Open 365 days a year since 1976, it’s been called “The Fenway Park of Irish Pubs,” by The Boston Globe. Try their breakfast specialty, The Rose Benny; an English muffin, rashers, poached egg, Hollandaise sauce, and home fries. For an extra charge you can add fresh salmon. Or feast on their thick and hearty traditional Guinness beef stew. The Black Rose has several rooms to host private events and live Irish music seven nights a week.
