It’s Not Farewell (We’ll See You Up the Street!)⁣ .
.⁣
The Market Tavern, an authentic Irish pub nestled on the corner of Market Street in Philadelphia, has served locals and travelers across from 30th Street Station for decades. Our family’s patriarch, Michael Doyle, immigrated to The United States from Castlerea, Ireland to Philadelphia, where he met the love of his life, Bernadette McMahon. Together, they endeavored to bring a little bit of Ireland to the corner of 30th and Market as Pete Richard’s. Nearly fifty years and a few name changes later, The Market Tavern’s rich history, Irish hospitality, and lively atmosphere have remained a steadfast presence in the City of Brotherly Love.⁣ ⁣
.
.
In an effort to focus in more depth on The New Deck Tavern, our founding establishment, we have decided to close The Market Tavern’s doors as its lease comes to an end.  With excitement, we announce we are continuing and expanding our services, including catering, at The New Deck Tavern up the street on 34th and Sansom in the heart of University City.⁣ ⁣
.
.
The Market Tavern brought together people from all backgrounds through food, friendship, and family (and maybe a pint or two!) for many years. The New Deck Tavern will continue our effort to paint a picture of new Ireland in old Philadelphia, bright with hope and filled with the promise of starting anew in a land of opportunity and freedom.⁣ ⁣
.
.
We at The Market Tavern honor our family’s past and embrace this change with a smile and a raised glass. As we close this chapter, we extend our deepest thanks to our friends, family, and patrons for the wonderful times we have had. We look forward to writing many new stories at The New Deck Tavern.⁣ ⁣

With fondest memories,⁣ ⁣
