About Us

This Historic Site... 115 Years And Counting

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.

    Great bar with a nice selection of plates to share that I and a group sample a number of during an after work get together. Service was prompt and they checked in enough to keep drinks flowing and the table cleared as we finished dishes but we're not overbearing.

    Bub’s definitely has a reputation in Germantown. Some people like it and some people don’t. I may be biased because I’m a regular here but I really enjoy Bub’s. I go here religiously on Friday for their fish fry. The baked cod is the best that I’ve found locally for the price. Kelsie and Jessica are both great bartenders. (They are usually there on Fridays when I go.) I really enjoy their service when I’m dining and drinking. Anytime that I’m off of work on Friday I’ll be eating the fish fry here.

    Service was excellent, very friendly and timely. Menu is typical bar food with a few twists, I had the corned beef burger( a burger with corned beef on it) it was excellent! Plenty of very tender and flavorful corned beef.

    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
