LAST CALL: Send-Off for The Wall Family as The Shannon Changes Hands
Last week we shared the bittersweet news that the owners of The Shannon were handing over the reins after 62 incredible years at the heart of Hoboken’s hospitality community.
Please join them this Thursday, April 12 for one last pint (ok, maybe two…) as they call “Last Call” on their legendary run in Hoboken.
from The Shannon:
After 62 years, we will be handing the reigns over to new owners. It’s been a great run and we will miss the town. We will cherish the memories and friendships we have made over the years. Please join us for our final last call on Thursday, April 12th.
We would love to hear your favorite memories of The Shannon. We can’t thank everyone enough for all the support over the years. We are looking forward to our next chapter in life.
Join us for one more great night! We hope to see you on the dance floor!
A true Hoboken landmark since it first opened in 1956, The Shannon sits at 106 First St., across from City Hall and firmly at the head of what has become known as Irish Row. It is the oldest family-owned bar in Hoboken.
While that run will come to an end on Thursday, The Shannon will remain—under new ownership. We look forward to hearing more about the future of the esteemed establishment. In the meantime, we thank the Wall Family for all they’ve done for Hoboken over the past six-plus decades. Matriarch Joan Wall was co-founder & inaugural grand marshal for the Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The Shannon was a go-to for Irish immigrants on this side of the Hudson seeking work or accommodation. More than a bar, it’s an institution.
Go raibh maith agaibh.
