Cheery haunt in a circa-1888 redbrick building offering American pub food, sports on TV & a patio.
Our charming neighborhood pub is one of the Saintly City's favorite haunts. Whether here for a sporting event, a downtown happening, the "wearing of the green" or just a simple gathering with friends or family, stop by and enjoy friendly service, hearty comestibles and spirited libations while relaxing near a fireplace or on our award-winning patio.
Built in 1888, this charming building housed an eclectic array of sometimes questionable establishments before becoming, in 1982, one of our Saintly City's favorite haunts - Patrick McGovern's Pub.
Located in the heart of Saint Paul's original Seven Corners neighborhood, this Victorian Romanesque structure listed on the Historic Register was originally known as the Smith Building, so-named for the prominent lawyer, financier and one-time mayor who razed his home to build it. Along the way, watering holes of one nature or another came to occupy its street-level, corner-most section, last home to the long-time Brass Rail.
When Pat first bought the old saloon, the place was little more than a worn-out, oftentimes rough, dive bar in an area with a reputation at that time for being much the same. Sledgehammer in hand, Pat knocked open a passageway to what is now the middle room to make way for a restaurant, jazzed up the decor and cleaned up the joint. When the doors opened in August 1982, the now famed Hot Turkey Sandwich was on the menu.
