Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub!
A couple of years ago two Irish cousins rolled into Burien to open Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub and Restaurant.
Within just two short years,Â Mick Purdy and Adrian Kelly were awarded Business Leader of the Year, 2007 by the City of Burien.
Recently celebrating their third year in Burien, Mick and Adrian and their staff have become expert fundraisers for various service organizations, diseases and victims.Â Thus far nearly $60,000 has been raised for the following causes:
- Burien Lions Club
- A cancer victim to pay for treatment
- Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
- The family of Deputy Steve Cox
- The victims of Burien’s apartment fire in June (co-sponsored by BTB & Discover Burien)
Mick Kelly’s hosts fundraisers once a quarter.
Giving back to their community is just part of a marketing formula which includes lots of events â€“ these are the guys that gave us a three day St. Patrick’s Day celebration in their first year in business â€“ a fair amount of Irish culture including Irish Dance and dance lessons every Sunday from 6-9pm (with free tuition) and traditional Irish singing on Saturday and Sundays starting at 3pm.
They additionally fill a few seats the fourth Wednesday of every month with local members of Drinking Liberally (a national grass roots progressive social group that gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics).
Mick’s been in the Burien area for some time and previously owned an Irish Pub in Wallingford.Â Adrian came across the great pond a few years back. He literally grew up behind the bar as his family has been in the bar and restaurant for over 80 years in Belfast, Ireland.
Besides the obvious Irish beer on tap (Smithwicks, Harp, Magners Cider, Guiness) they have imports including Newcastle Brown Ale and Stella ArtoisÂ and eight micros from the Northwest and Alaska, plus both domestic and importedÂ bottled beers. Good to know for those on a budget: Happy Hour prices on beer are reduced by up to $1.25 a pint. Happy Hour times include Sunday-Friday 3-5pm and Sunday thru Thursday 9-11pm. A Happy Hour menu includes sliders, Mexican appetizers, and a few favorites from their regular Irish fare, to name a few.
Ever had a Irish Margarita or Irish Rood Beer? These are just a few of the classic cocktails on Mick Kelly’s cocktail menu.Â Or there’s the Martini menue which includes the Belfast Brownie, and the Kelly’s Choc Pop Martini. Their rather extensive wine list includes Mick Kelly’s Private Label wines vinted by Washington winery St. Hiliare and Burien’sÂ own E.B. FooteÂ Winery.
For lunch or dinner, Mick’s offers appetizers, huge salads, homemade soups, clam chowder and chili, pasta, steaks, chicken, pork tenderloin, burgers, sandwiches and nine Irish Specialities including Bangers & Mash, Belfast Supper, Shepherds Pie, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish Turkey Dinner, Chicken Potpie, Fish and Chips and Emerald Isle Pie. Mick Kelly’s opens early on Saturday and Sunday where they offer breakfast starting at 7am, and really really good Bloody Mary’s!
They proudly serve Misty Isle Meats, which is environmentally-cultured beef free of antibiotics, added hormones, growth enhancers or anything else that alters what nature does best. Nothing more. Nothing less. Misty Isle Farms’ cattle produce beef products with all the juiciness, tenderness and flavor you expect in a good steak or ground beef.
Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub â€“ a Burien institution in just three years.Â Try it, you’ll like it.Â They’re located at 435 SW 152nd (right across from the new Burien Town Square – see map below). The bar opens Monday – Friday at 11am and at 7am on weekends.
Adrian Kelly told BTB “it’s fantastic to be a part of the development and future of Burien.Â It’s on its way and can only get better.”
We think so too, especially with business leaders like Mick and Adrian.
