Life...Fun and Kentucky Real Estate


The Paddy Wagon Irish Pub, 150 E. Main St., Richmond Kentucky

The Patty Wagon Irish PubThe Paddy Wagon Irish Pub, 150 E. Main St., Richmond Kentucky is finally open for business in a new location.

Third time is charm for the owners, Greg Ferrell and Chuck Fields.

Established in 2004 on Water Street...then to Main Street in 2006 for a year a few doors up from the new location. Then it burned to the ground in the middle of the night.  

The famous fire is still one of Richmond Kentucky's unexplained mysteries.

Fire experts scratched their heads in puzzlement as to the cause.

"Hmmmm...It could be this...or could be that." Who really knows? 

All that was saved that fateful night was an Irish clock, 1 sign and a few police patches. Both Greg and Chuck teach criminal justice at EKU so the patches were a collection of police patches that patrons donated when they visited the bar. I've been in bars that have unique collections of $1 bills(Tortilla Flat, AZ), neckties(Carefree, AZ) and bras(Key West).The Patty Wagon Irish Pub  

The idea for the Irish pub came from a trip to Ireland when they toured the Guinness Factory, Dublin and to the north...Belfast. Armed with information and local souvenirs Chuck came up with the décor for the inside of The Paddy Wagon Irish Pub.

The name of the pub has to do with criminal justice. Maybe Irish justice?

Now open since June 26 with a plethora of beer and ale for anyone's tastes or mood. The food is great...I had a generous helping of the fish and chips and the service was spot on.

 There is a friendly atmosphere inside and plenty of room to park outside. Sip your beer on an outdoor deck and enjoy a Richmond Kentucky downtown view.

Lizette - one of my favorite watering holes (the original location) when I lived in the area. My wife and used to love playing network trivia and meet people there.

Nicely done article. You could be a feature writer in the newspaper.

Lizette--I love that bars/restaurants have collections of things...The police patches must have been quite a loss to these guys. Maybe with your post a few more will arrive sooner! The Restaurant where we had our wedding reception, The Lake Elmo Inn had a huge collection of Salt and Pepper shakers and the bakery where we go has a collection of cookie jars along the walls. It is fun to see what has been added on each visit!

Hope the Luck of the Irish is with the Paddy Wagon this time!

Carolyn - Food is serious business to me too. Paddy Wagon does make good fish n chips!

Sally - Thanks for stopping by! It's always good to hear from you.

Susie - Hope you had fun on your trip. Nice to have you back.

Mike - Cool you have been to the last one they had. If you are up this way stop in and see the new one. It's amazing!

Steven - That would be nice!

Teri - I feel the luck of the Irish is with them this time around.

Robert - The lucky part is that the building has had some lucky businesses in it through the years. Rexall Drug Store and OReillys(a nightclub). They will do well there.
