From Our Family to Yours
In 1978, Jim Holloran, family man and local attorney, opened a small bar at the corner of Russell Boulevard and 12th Street in St. Louis, Missouri. Then John D. McGurk’s was just one small room with a bar, a few pub tables, and a stage. Needless to say, McGurk’s has grown in both size and notoriety over the years, but the Holloran family remains the proud owners. Whether you are a regular at McGurk’s, or the website is your first encounter with us, we value your support, and we would love to hear from you. Give us feedback, ask us questions, email us at email@example.com or just come in and say hi. We are here for you.
From our family to yours, céad mile fáilte!

John McAteer, better known to the regulars as “Lucky,” tends the front bar
of McGurk’s Tuesday thru Saturday. Lucky hails from Donegal, but in 1992 emigrated from his home to St. Louis where he took a job as a dishwasher at an up-and-coming Irish restaurant and bar in Soulard.
Since then, McGurk’s has become the standard of Irish establishments in the United States, and Lucky has become a fixture at the front bar. His knowledge, experience, and charm have been essential to McGurk’s success, and the McGurk’s family thanks him greatly for his decade and a half of proud service.
Do you have questions about Ireland, her culture, or drinks, just ask Lucky!
