Ribbon Cutting Held Today in Celebration

It is time to check out the newly renovated Molly Brannigan’s

Red Letter Hospitality hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning at Molly Brannigan’s to celebrate their re-opening with an updated look and menu. 

The $500,000 project had several goals – refresh the décor and seating which had grown tired since the Irish pub opened almost 20 years ago, and ready it for a starring role in downtown Erie’s renaissance.  The new design was careful to honor all the existing wooden structures including the massive bar moved over from Ireland while adding some truly special new elements. 

The menu, which was revamped shortly after Red Letter Hospitality purchased the restaurant in 2018, now includes an Express Lunch Menu. Served Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the menu now includes an Express Lunch Menu designed to get weekday diners in, out and back to work.

Red Letter Hospitality is a management company created by business partners, Billy Lewis and Greg Brown. The company, which includes The Cork 1794, the newly renovated Molly Brannigan’s, The Skunk and Goat Tavern, and several CoreLife Eateries, is headquartered in North East and employs 250.

Congratulations! Way to grow!
