A beloved Irish pub in Tampa is hoping for an early 2022 reopening! Four Green Fields that once stood inside a truly storybook house, replete with thatched roof and leprechauns in the garden, closed on Platt Street a year ago. Now, the pub where Sinead O’Connor once played has grown up into a warehouse-sized space at 802 N 12th Street, between the Channel District and Ybor City, just within reach of the Selmon Expressway overpass.Verify my mortgage eligibility (Jan 29th, 2023)
The 16,000 square foot industrial venue is still under development, but fans of Four Green Fields can finally rejoice: an end to closure is in sight, and pints of Guinness should be flowing fast and freely now! Look for an Irish welcome sometime towards the end of January, owner Colin Breen promises. Expect a life-sized mural designed to replicate the original bar and the same green door that graced the Four Green Fields on Platt Street.
Sentimentality may run high, but so do new horizons at Four Green’s bigger location. For one, an Irish whisky tasting room sponsored by Kinnitty Castle Spirits is planned, as well as a new microbrewery. It seems change is a good thing, even when it involves a well-loved Tampa tradition. To stay updated, visit https://www.facebook.com/FourGreenFieldsTampa/ and https://fourgreenfields.com/.
