Out of the pages of the American Dream comes the story of McSwiggan’s. Once upon a time, Aidan Boyle purchased a local bar and embarked on a complete reconstruction. In February 1999 McSwiggan’s opened its doors to the thirsty of Hoboken to immediate acclaim. After years of success, McSwiggan’s was completely destroyed by a devastating fire in January 2008. Uncowed by the destruction, Aidan set to work anew to rebuild McSwiggan’s. That September, McSwiggan’s opened remodeled doors once more, with a Celtic-inspired Phoenix incorporated into the design, inspired by the myth of the fire-reborn creature. The reopening was honored with a cake by Chef Buddy of Carlo’s Bakery and Cake Boss fame. Today, McSwiggan’s is a unique find – bearing the congenial atmosphere of the traditional Irish pub, the hearty camaraderie of the sports bar, and the uptempo excitement of a trendy nightspot – depending on when you visit! Come to McSwiggan’s and you’ll see what we mean! Slàinte!
