McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub and Whiskey Bar is known for bringing a unique Irish/Celtic Pub experience (no passport required) to the Lehigh Valley. It is centrally located in the heart of Historic Bethlehem right off Main Street next to their fellow business Donegal Square. This Pub is no stranger to Bethlehem as it originally started as a Celtic Tea Room and Bakery opening in 1997. Through his passion for sharing his Irish heritage owner, Neville Gardner, decided to convert the Tea Room into the “Red Stag Pub” and enlist the talent and knowledge of Executive Chef Jill Oman. The goal was to marry Celtic traditions with a gastropub atmosphere including fresh baked goods, scratch made family recipes and some twists on traditional pub fare.
The result; a truly unique dining experience usually only found on the far side of the Atlantic. A visit to McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub will also include a selection of unique Whiskeys from around the world as well as various Beers from Ireland, Scotland and the United States. A sample of their famous McCarthy’s Irish Cream is a must try in a French Pressed Coffee, as a mix in a cocktail or simply on the rocks. If you’re lucky you might also find it in one of their luscious desserts made special in-house. Make sure to visit the medieval style “Great Room” a unique venue for private events and Celtic inspired intimate weddings.
