    About Us

    Bub's Irish Pub

    Where you are treated as our friends

    The first question we are asked is… “Who is BuB?” The short answer is that there is no BuB. The story goes like this…

    In the 1990’s I was spending most of my free time with my kids whom were Irish Dancers with the Trinity Irish Dancers. They would compete in feis’s, fests, competitions and shows. The fathers of the dancers would spend a lot of time together waiting for the kids to dance. The group of dads became good friends, created fund raising activities and even created some “dad” events like golf outings and checking out some of the local Irish Pubs for a pint or two. One night, one of the guys said, “We need a name for our group.” Several dads said they were heading over to Ireland soon and would come up with a name.

    In the spring of 1999, a group of fathers of the Trinity Irish Dancers went to the World Championships of Irish Dance. They checked in to their hotels, got settled and decided to check out a local pub across the street. As lore has it, they walked in to the pub, sat down on their stools and the woman bartender said, “What’ll you have… Bub?” The guys looked at each other and one of them said, “That’s it, we’re going to be Bubs!”

    They were treated as we treat our friends, our buddies or our pals. In that single moment, they brought back a part of Ireland to America and we are carrying on that spirit. The Bubs have continued their traditions. They volunteer, host fundraisers, have golf events and yes, still get together to hoist a pint or two a local Irish Pubs. In 2003, we asked “The Bubs” for permission to use their name for our new Irish Pub theme. They said, “As long as you have Guinness on tap, you can use the name.”

    This Historic Site… 115 Years And Counting

    This historic site has been “THE PLACE” to go in the area since the late 1890’s. Originally a Dance Hall and Saloon, bowling was added in the early 1900’s and the banquet hall was added in the 1940’s. The history includes business names like The Town Bowl, The Rose – Ed, & Reuter’s Germantown Bowl.

    In 1997 we bought the building, opened as The Cactus Cantina & Desert Bowl and have been evolving the space ever since. We are honored to be the stewards of this great place and carry on the tradition of being “THE PLACE” to go… even today, 115 years later and counting.

      5 star review  We hosted a 40th birthday party for my brother at Bub's. The team was absolutely awesome and the venue worked perfectly! We rented the Irish Festival Hall for our party with beer, pizza, games, and live music. The room is really nice, large, and private, and it was clean and set up with tables when we arrived at noon to decorate. Honestly we didn't need to do much decorating because the room already looked great. We put out some pictures, favors, and small decorations and brought our own cold appetizer spread. We had two kegs of beer for our guests, or they could buy cocktails. The bartender was awesome and talked to everyone. We did trivia and had some toasts, and they had a mic for us with music in between. We had pizza brought out before the show started, then our group was able to move back and forth from the Hall to the main bar to watch the show. Everyone at Bub's was helpful and accommodating and our people had an absolute blast. I think my favorite part was that their team cleaned up at the end, we just had to grab our stuff and go. It was surprisingly easy to coordinate the booking of the band as well. Would definitely recommend Bub's as an affordable party venue that is flexible enough to meet you where you are.

      5 star review  If you are looking for somewhere to have your wedding, Bub's is the place! They have room to accommodate gatherings of all sizes and their packages are the absolute best deal around. They include the hall, food, DJ, beer, soda, linens, shuttle, coordinator, almost everything you need, which is nice because you have half as many vendors to keep track of. The food - absolutely delicious! - The hall - Beautiful and they are constantly doing updates. The DJ - kept people dancing all night and tailors their selection to your preference. Scott and Gail go above and beyond to make everything absolutely perfect for your day. Coral and gray were my colors and I wanted a splash of coral in the linens with the napkins. They didn't have them, so they ordered them for me (no extra charge). They are also very open and honest with the best way to give you what you want for the lowest price possible, which is extremely helpful when planning a wedding. We got married during 2020, so we had Covid to deal with, meaning we had to last minute reschedule our wedding. Scott and Gail were fantastic with helping us move our wedding two months later and ensuring everything was clean and guests safety was considered along the way. It has been a month since our wedding and our friends and family are still talking about how fun and beautiful our wedding was. If you are planning a wedding of any size on a budget and you still want a beautiful wedding this is the place to go!

And the one place it wasn't handicapped accessible they helped by hand and are looking into it. This is as close to a friendly local Irish restaurant / bar this side of Ireland.

I've been a regular here for years and love coming back to friendly faces. The staff does not turn over often so you know they're doing something right.
