Closed for renovation in 2018, iconic McGovern’s Tavern, at 55-60 New Street in downtown Newark, has finally re-opened. Essex Catholic alumni, faculty and friends have been gathering at McGovern’s, owned by Sean McGovern ’84, for the All-Classes Reunion for many years. On Saturday, April 24, the Foundation fully expects to be at the place where “In God We Trust. All Others Pay.”

Opened in 1936, McGovern’s Tavern is one of the oldest Irish Pubs in New Jersey. It started with the idea of having a place where the Irish community could socialize and partake in some Irish music and dancing. It quickly became an institution. Today you won’t find a more eclectic mix of individuals sharing a pint and a laugh together at the end of a long day at work or school. Whether you work in the area, are going to school there or are just visiting, you’re sure to feel at home. “Fáilte roimh chách!” in Gaelic, or in Irish, “All are welcome!”

Stay tuned for more details!
