Our History & Culture

Learn more about Jack Quinn’s the Authentic Irish pub in Colorado Springs! Established in 1875, our historic building was remodeled to expose the original wood and brick that contributes the unique Irish pub atmosphere. We then had craftsmen from Ireland, Scotland and Wales use 100% imported Irish woodwork, stained glass, and décor. This creation has resulted in a wonderfully warm and inviting environment that sets Jack Quinn’s Irish Pub apart. We pride ourselves in only the highest quality service, food, atmosphere, and entertainment.



The historic building we now call home started at the turn of the 20th century as a dry-goods store.
