Nothing says Boston Irish more than McGreevy’s, a fun pub on Boylston Street owned and operated by the city’s own Dropkick Murphys front man Ken Casey. Step through the wooden door and into the popular, if a bit touristy, bar, that was named after Michael McGreevy, who once headed up the Royal Rooters, a fan club of the Boston Red Sox. Like the Rooters back in the 1800s, the Dropkicks still sing “Tessie” to cheer the Sox onto World Series wins. And while the pub honors its history with a replica of McGreevy’s original “3rd Base Saloon” bar at the back and sports memorabilia throughout, the menu features updated pub classics like waffle fries, chicken wings, burgers and hot dogs – all of which appeal to the college-aged crowd that tends to drop in.
