McGinty’s Public House, in the Market Square at Potomac Yard development near Crystal City, has closed for good, an employee of the bar’s Silver Spring sister location confirms to ARLnow.com.
The pub shut down at some point last week, according to a customer who recently dined there. A sign in the window states that the location is “closed for business.”
“Thank you for your loyal support,” the sign says, purportedly on behalf of the pub’s Irish-born co-owners, Brian Dolphin and Greg Whelan. Dolphin and Whelan also own P. Brennan’s Irish Pub on Columbia Pike. P. Brennan’s and McGinty’s Silver Spring will remain open, according to the pub employee.
No reason was given for the shuttering, but the as of Dec. 16 McGinty’s owed Arlington County $19,751.18 in unpaid meals taxes.
The pub was an ambitious venture considering the out-of-the-way, developing corner of South Arlington in which it was located. It featured ample seating, an outdoor patio, and live entertainment.
We reported earlier this month that a new pizza restaurant is coming to the Market Square development. It’s not clear whether it will be taking McGinty’s place or opening in a different storefront.
