I’d like to wish Paddy Reilly’s Music Bar a very happy 25th anniversary. For the last quarter of a century I have frequented Paddy Reilly’s. I do clearly recall my first night there. Steve Duggan’s personality was so infectious, it is the reason I’ve returned on every visit. Congrats and best wishes. I hope I’m around in 25 years’ time to celebrate the 50th!

As a ‘Playboy Playmate of the year’ and Roxy Music album cover girl for ‘Stranded’, I’m both honoured and touched to be included in Paddy Reilly’s Hall of Fame. Here’s to you Steve & Happy Anniversary Paddy Reilly’s!

The Beatles had The Cavern. Black 47 had Paddy Reilly’s. We premiered James Connolly there one rowdy night - when we finished you could hear a pin drop.

Paddy Reilly’s is the home of live Irish music in New York, its stage a shrine to all the great musicians who’ve played there before and the still-undiscovered talent that will play there some day. Come for the music and stay for the craic. And the Guinness.

If I had invested all of the money I have spent at Paddy’s over the years, I wouldn’t: have had so many good pints... have seen so much great live music... have gotten my chops busted by Raylene... have been called a “Nerd” by Jimmy Fallon... Basically I would have a crappy 401k and nothing to show for it. Congrats on the anniversary guys and the 25 years.

Congratulations to Paddy Reilly’s on 25 terrific years! We’ve come here to “play” for a long time, and recently, we had the opportunity to “work” as your Karaoke Idol Judges. The contest was a perfect example of what Paddy Reilly’s is all about - a blending of good music, good people and good times. Here’s to 25 more years to come!

Sincere and heartfelt congratulations Paddy Reilly’s on their 25th anniversary! From the very first time I walked in back in ‘94 for my first Black 47 show, I have always found delightful and inspiring conversation, great music, and a deliciously poured pint of Guinness—arguably one of the best, if not ‘the best’, in the city.
