In honor of St. Patrick's Day ☘️ we are posting the gorgeous #neon harp outside the Dublin House Bar on the Upper West Side

This is a family-owned #Irish #pub which has been in business since 1921. It was founded by John Carway, an #Irish immigrant from Dublin who rented the space during Prohibition. We absolutely love its #vintage #neonsign in the shape of a harp and its letters that say "TAP ROOM" and "BAR" which blink on and off. The bartender, Mr. Daly told us that the reason the neon sign has the words "tap room" is that Dublin House was one of the first bars to offer beer 🍺 on tap. Full interview with Mr. Daly and nighttime photo of entire #storefront with neon #signage appear in our book "New York Nights".
