Opening its doors in 2004, Emmett Mahoney’s is a traditional Irish pub complete with good food and authentic Irish hospitality. We offer two levels of dining and full-service bars in this historic building which was once the original Vassar Brewery. A section of the brewery’s grain auger can be seen as a decoration outside the back doors on the lower level. Down there we also have 23 new flat-screen TVs for your enjoyment and free WI-FI.
In 2013 Mahoney’s opened the Vassar Room, and in 2019 we opened the Claddagh Room for all types of social events. We host live bands, DJS and various events regularly. We have an interactive murder mystery dinner theatre from the Acme Mystery Theater throughout the year. Did you know we have Acoustic Open Mic every Monday, The Poughkeepsie Jazz Project on Tuesdays, Wednesdays is a night of fun with Karaoke, test your knowledge with Trivia on Thursdays and Laugh it up comedy club on most Friday and Saturday nights, just check our website for all the information.
The evening hours get a bit lively, Fridays and Saturdays. Our favorite celebration, of course, is the holiday of St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a day to remember with traditional Irish music, bagpipers, Irish Step Dancers, and delicious food and drinks.
