Patrick Kennedy’s Irish Pub Opens in Downtown Dallas at the Westin Hotel


Downtown Dallas is home to a new Irish pub called Patrick Kennedy’s Irish Pub, which opened in mid-September. It resides on the bottom floor of the Downtown Westin Hotel at 1201 Main St. #100, where it replaces NOLA Brasserie, a New Orleans-themed restaurant that closed in May 2023.

Patrick Kennedy’s joins a family of Irish pubs from Irish native Alan Kearney, who owns other pubs in the DFW Metroplex, including Playwright Irish Pub in Dallas Arts District, The Crafty Irishman Public House in downtown Dallas, Trinity College Irish Pub in Fort Worth, and Cannon’s Corner Irish Pub in Oak Cliff.

Patrick Kennedy’s is the second Irish pub downtown for Kearney. Patrick Kennedy’s boasts 6,500 square feet with a large high bar, table and booth seating, and a wrap-around outdoor patio.

The name for Patrick Kennedy’s comes from JFK’s great-grandfather, Patrick Kennedy. Patrick’s coming to America was a classic immigrant tale that mirrors Kearney’s story.

Guests will enjoy a warm ambience as they sit comfortably around fireplaces and cozy rooms with wooden walls and Irish paraphernalia in every nook and cranny for the history buffs.

Come hungry for this traditional Irish menu, which includes French onion soup served in a hollowed-out onion, and Pub Chicken and Mushroom Vol Au Vents served in a delicious puff pastry. You can also find a traditional Irish breakfast, Scotch eggs, and New Ross Sheperd’s Pie and Howth Beer-Battered Fish and Chips, which comes fresh on a plane weekly.

The pub offers weekend brunch and Happy Hour (Monday-Friday, 2-7 p.m.), where you can order Irishman Red Ale pints, domestic bottled beers, house wines, well liquor, as well as specialty drinks like the Irish Mule, Car Bomb, Green Tea shots, and Baby Guinness Shots. A little something to nosh on includes Galway Bay Mussels, Corned Beef and cabbage Rolls, Irish Nachos, Public House Pretzel, Boneless Wings, and Spicy Wisconsin Cheese Curds.
