Black Rose 2As I was searching for Irish eateries in Boston that offered live ethnic music on a regularly scheduled basis, I discovered that the task was not a easy as one would assume, being that Boston is known for its rather large Irish population. Now don’t get me wrong, for there are plenty of these establishments that host quite a lot of  Irish music. Its just that it tends to be scheduled irregularly along with other genres, so it is not as easy to pinpoint. The Black Rose however, is one of the few that reliably provides authentic Irish music entertainment every single night of the week! It’s nice to know that whenever you’re in the  mood they are always there to serve you. 

The business is named after a classic Irish poem entitled “Roisin Dubh” or “The Small Black Rose”. Proudly Black Rose 12owning the distinction as one of the nation’s top 10 Irish establishments, this pub/restaurant has become a classic in of itself, a literal local institution who is known for its quality live Irish music entertainment which they have hosted for over 30 years. Past performers at The Black Rose have included such names as members of the Chieftains, James Galway, Tommy Makem, and Liam Clancy. 

All dishes on the menu are home-made- nothing but the real thing here! They offer standard Irish fare as well as traditional American favorites, complete with a kids menu. Here are some snippets from the Irish menu but don’t forget to checkout the whole thing:

Black Rose Burger (pub burger topped with Irish bacon, caramelized onions and sauteed crimini mushrooms)

Bangers & Mash (Irish stout and caramelized onion sausages grilled and served with home-style mashed potatoes, magners gravy and caramelized onions) Black rose 1

Fish & Chips (local Haddock breaded, fried, and served with fries, malt vinegar slaw and tarter sauce)

“Black and White” Bread Pudding (laced with dark and white chocolate, topped with Irish whiskey-hazelnut creme) 
Cookies and Milk (freshly baked chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies, served with your choice of milk or Guinness)

The music begins at 9:30 every night and on many evenings there is additional Happy Hour entertainment from 4-8 p.m. Just check their schedule for more specific info. or call them at 617-742-2286. They are conveniently located downtown near Quincy Market (State Street or Aquarium T stops) and are open nightly until 2:00 a.m.
