Nallen's Irish Pub

History

Nallen’s Irish Pub is more than just a LoDo bar. This mainstay was opened in 1992 by John and Una Nallen, who moved to Denver in 1982 after immigrating to New York from County Mayo, Ireland in 1972. Pat McCullough, from the Celtic Connection, a bi-weekly Irish paper, says the paper, the Denver Gaels, Colorado Irish Festival, and a number of Irish artists got their start at the pub. McCullough reflects that when The Celtic Connection launched in 1993 as a calendar of events out of Nallen’s, they were able to use the pub as a community center to build their publication. Stop by the pub today for a glimpse into Denver’s Irish culture through concerts and Irish dance—both of which you can find at their St. Paddy’s Day Celebration—or for a perfectly poured Guinness.
