Have a Pint (or two) at The Black Rose

"Over the highways and byways the pilgrim goes aflame with the name of my small black rose." Extracted from the 17th century elegiac poem Roisin Dubh (the small black rose), this line written anonymously, rings no less resonant today when referring to Boston's premier Irish pub and restaurant. Voted one of America's top ten Irish establishments: The Black Rose established in 1976, is located in the historic Faneuil Hall-Quincy market area of Boston. It's known far and wide for its convivial atmosphere, good food and live Irish entertainment. The menu features honest made-from-scratch food including: traditional Irish fare, award winning clam chowder, fish and chips, native lobster, aged black angus cuts of beef and of course Mother Sweeney's corned beef, a recipe developed by Mother Sweeney himself. The Black Rose has offered live Irish music seven nights a week for 30 years. Memorable guests on stage have included members of the Chieftains, flutist James Galway, Tommy Makim, Liam Clancy, John Denver and a once relatively unknown member of an Irish rock group called U2.
