Rosie O’Grady’s, Manhattan’s famed pub and steakhouse, will close July 1
Rosie O’Grady’s, a popular Midtown Manhattan Irish bar and steakhouse for more than 40 years, will be closing its doors for good in early July 2023.
Located on the corner of West 52nd Street and Seventh Avenue, the restaurant / event space will permanently shut down on Saturday, July 1, according to Owner Mike Carty, who posted a message on the restaurant’s website.
“It is with a mixture of emotions that we announce the closure of our cherished location…after more than 40 wonderful years,”
who immigrated from Ireland in the early 1960s.
“We want to express our deepest gratitude to all who supported Rosie O’Grady’s Steakhouse and our event space…and would so enjoy seeing you for one last pint.”
Carty’s message, however, made clear that he plans to re-open the establishment elsewhere.
“Amidst the bittersweet goodbye, we want to convey our unwavering commitment to relocating our restaurant and event space to a nearby location,” Carty wrote.
“Rest assured, our new venue will capture the essence and sprit you have come to love.”
The restaurant and the building’s landlord, SL Green, continues to be involved in a rent dispute that went to arbitration, according to the Irish Voice newspaper that was first to report that the establishment will be closing. An arbitration panel ruled in SL Green’s favor.
Many jobs will be lost with this closure, as more than 90 employees will be let go.
Carty was not immediately available for commen
