An Béal Bocht New York, Guide & Review
An Beal Bocht Cafe is the premier venue showcasing both Irish and local music, poetry, comedy, theatre, and art exhibits. Our friendly staff serves a hearty menu and tasty drinks to make sure you enjoy your time at our cafe. An Beal Bocht Cafe, in operation since 1991, began as a small cafe. Richard has owned and operated An Beal Bocht Cafe since 1991! An Irish Immigrant, he has managed to include a touch of home in all his bars around NYC: Arlene’s Grocery, the Scratcher, and Le Cheile.
A lover of the arts, he has created a space at An Beal Bocht Cafe to showcase all of our local talents. Music; Irish and all other, Poetry, Painting & Photography, and Theater. Serving only non-alcoholic beverages, it centered as a spot for an artist to gather and performs, and quickly cemented itself as a neighborhood favorite. A few years later, a Liquor License was acquired and things haven’t been the same since. Eventually taking over the adjacent storefront An Beal Bocht expanded, as our commitment to the arts expanded as well. When they grew we were able to include an Artist’s Gallery and Theatre Space for our Poor Mouth Theatre Company. Looking toward the future we hope to continue being the premier music and arts venue in our neighborhood.
