More on the new Irish pub coming to St. Matthews.
In November, we reported that Maier’s, St. Matthews tavern, was changing hands. Here’s the rest of the story.
Both Business First of Louisville and the on-line Louisville Restaurant Forum confirm an Irish identity for what apparently will be called Brendan O’s, located in the former home of the landmark St. Matthews tavern, Maier’s.
This will be a couple of doors down from Bluegrass Brewing Company, near the grand intersection of Shelbyville Road, Frankfort Avenue, Lexington Road, and Chenoweth and Breckinridge Lane.
In forum postings last week, Tom O’Shea and one of his partners in the new business discussed their concept for the new establishment, one described as a more “grown up” Irish pub ambience and an accompanying desire to expand food offerings beyond what they’re able to do with their younger Baxter Avenue demographic (at O’Shea’s Traditional and Flanagan’s Ale House).
It certainly sounds like fun, and when Brendan O’s is open, you’ll get a report.
