Where strangers are friends you haven't met yet...

Welcome to Milwaukee's Finest Irish Pub

A quiet pint, a wee dram, a drop of the pure, a night out with your pals: Paddy's Pub is the place down the street where you know you're always welcome. And you never know what you'll find - perhaps some lilting Irish tunes, a wild hoolie, some earnest conversation with the barman, or a debate over the finest Scotch. It's a place you won't forget, and will always return to - or try to at least - no matter how far your wanderings take you.

And it's a place to share the events of your life - the weddings and gatherings, the christenings and anniversaries. It's a place like no other, and why should it be? For we don't try to be anything else, just — Paddy's Pub.

"Strangers are friends you have yet to meet."
