Paddy Coyne's Pier 70

Lads and lasses, prepare yourself for a new St. Pat’s Day destination. Patrick Coyne is hoping to open his latest Paddy Coyne’s pub at Pier 70 in time for the green beer holiday. Currently he’s pegging the debut “around the 12th of March.”

The waterfront location will be the largest of the Paddy Coyne’s chainlet, and, says Coyne, offer alfresco seating come summer. Otherwise “it will have the same feel, concept, and menus as the other three locations,” he added, referring to the pubs in South Lake Union, Tacoma, and Bellevue, all purveyors of some serious cheer and impressively authentic Irish fare.

Pier 70 is also home to the recently rebranded Aqua By El Gaucho. But pop culture junkies know it as the former Real World house and where Stephen went batshit on Irene.
