DDA welcomes Kildare
On March 25, the Marquette Downtown Development Authority welcomed Kildare Irish American Pub to downtown Marquette. Located at 142 W. Washington St., Kildare offers a unique mix of traditional Irish favorites and American classics. They have a fully stocked bar with 12 taps of both imported Irish beers and locally favorite Michigan beers. Kildare’s kitchen is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with bar hours extending on those days to midnight.
