THE BLACK ROSE
For the past 40 years, The Black Rose has been Boston’s premier Irish pub and restaurant. Located in the heart of Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall and steps from the city’s celebrated waterfront, The Black Rose has been serving up perfect pints of Guinness and traditional Irish fare 365 days a year since 1976. It’s a beloved Boston institution, prompting the Boston Globe to call it “The Fenway Park of Irish pubs.”
It’s name comes from the Gaelic term “Roisin Dubh” or the small black rose, which originates from a 17th century poem inked by an anonymous author who wrote: “Over the highways and byways the pilgrim goes aflame with the name of my small black rose.” This is the essence of the Black Rose: an experience to stimulate the senses and create memories for years to come.
Pints are poured by staff with authentic brogues, the cuisine is authentic yet inventive, and there is live Irish music seven nights a week, all year round. In a city filled with Irish pubs, The Black Rose stands alone as a beacon of tradition, a haven of Gaelic culture, and a welcoming meeting place for people from across the globe looking to celebrate, relax and enjoy an authentic slice of Boston life.
