Number of locations
McGreevy's Bar is located on Boylston Street in Boston, Massachusetts, across from Hynes Convention Center. Founded in 2008 by Ken Casey and Peter Nash (also known as Pete Nice), McGreevy's is a re-opened version of the bar formerly called 3rd Base Saloon, which shut down in the 1920s due to prohibition.
3rd Base Saloon was owned by Michael "Nuf Ced" McGreevy, a very vocal fan on the Boston Americans, now known as the Boston Red Sox, and a notable member of their fan group, the "Royal Rooters." Located on the corner of Tremont and Ruggles street in Boston, MA, 3rd Base Saloon served as a meeting ground for the Royal Rooters and is widely regarded as the first sports bar in America. As a result of prohibition, 3rd Base Saloon shut their doors in 1921.
In 2008 3rd Base Saloon was reopened, under the name of McGreevy's as a tribute to the original owner, by Ken Casey of the Boston-based band, Dropkick Murphys, and Peter Nash, a baseball historian.
Similar to its roots, McGreevy's has now become a popular sports bar in Boston, Massachusetts, where players from the Boston Red Sox have been known to frequent.
In January 2016 McGreevy's hosted the "Pants-less Party," an annual gathering after the yearly "No Pants Subway Ride" in Boston.
The Dropkick Murphys played a benefit show for the family of Lieutenant Edward J. Walsh Jr. and firefighter Michael R. Kennedy at McGreevy's in April 2014.
