J. Patrick's Pub, the Locust Point Irish bar loved for its authentic feel and live music, will close after New Year's Eve, according to this Baltimore Business Journal report.
The building, located at 1371 Andre St., will be placed on an auction block Jan. 10, according to the report. The bar's contents and liquor license, along with the building itself, will be open to bidding. The BBJ's Jack Lambert also writes that there are potential buyers along the East Coast, and they could be interested in keeping it an Irish pub.
Joseph Patrick Byrne, who died in July, opened J. Patrick's Pub in 1987. Last month, I named it the 31st best bar in the city.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
