About us

The Playwright is our city’s newest Irish pub, offering hundreds of whiskeys, wide selection of beers on tap and foods you can only find in an Irish pub. It’s making the Arts District the best place to get dishes such as shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, and homemade Brown Bread Ice Cream— all made in-house.

And it is a place where, truly, everybody knows your name.
