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.

    Bubs is a great bar and entertainment venue located in a very "small town" location. I don't get to stop in often, but have always enjoyed it when I do. It has a really comfortable and rustic feel to it, has very good food, friendly servers and live entertainment with a decent sized stage. They also have multiple pool tables, darts, and those machines my wife likes to throw money in. Give it a try sometime, there's a lot to like.

    I ADORE Bub's!! Brandon is a breeze to work with when it comes to coordinating events. I love DJing and dancing here. Matt takes such great care of me, knows my drink by heart, & even comes to find me before the kitchen closes to see if I want to order food, because he knows I get busy and lose track of time. That's excellent service! Redd LeRoy Ring Tunes Wedding & Event DJ

    Bubs is our favorite Germantown hangout spot. We are in often and have always enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere is my favorite part of the bar/restaurant. I remember coming for dinner when my grandma was still alive and that was years ago. We always feel welcome and like neighbors. I recommend Bubs to everyone who is the mood for a hometown place to eat, drink and be merry. Thanks Bubs crew, keep it up!

    Loved the music that was already playing, and once Zippy got on there it was so much fun!!! ... and the food was great! I never got the bartender's name when I got there, but she was right on all night, and then Zippy took over and I am not gonna lie, ladies, he knows how to make ya feel special. Lol. The service overall was nothing short of fantastic. They stayed open for a small crowd, that was nice also!! I think for the size of the place, the prices were right, on a busy night...but still a tad high if it's slow and they wanna keep people there, (or if you're a regular. ...I was not a regular, but....if you're there a LOT, I bet they'd work with ya! Or so it seemed...??) I just know I had a great time there the last few I've been there and finally decided to review it. I don't like to make bad reviews, but I still do. But this place has never disappointed. Pool tables, huge stage with regularly scheduled bands, huge dining area, large (double) bars, it's amazing! Go there. You won't be disappointed!!

    Went there to see The Glam Band with a group of people that we know. Bought our tickets on line through the Bub's Irish Pub website for $10.00 a head. We all had a great time. Staff was short handed at the bar but, was understandable. Would go again to see other bands.
