Clancy’s Pub Pizza & Grill on 168th was launched in 1977 at the previous location on 72nd & Pacific. They have prided themselves as “the best homemade food served in a sports bar”. This was way before the wave of chain sports bars spewed later in the 90s. They have been recognized for their great daily specials, including the “Famous Steak Day” on Wednesday. During their height with 4 locations combined; they would sell over 1,000 steaks on any given Wednesday afternoon. St. Patrick’s Day became the greatest party in Omaha every March 17.
Regardless of the cost, he wanted the biggest party around. Even smacking customers around to the then 4 Clancy’s locations. Since that time, they have reduced to two locations; one at 168th & Center in Omaha and the most recent Clancy’s in Scottsdale, AZ born in 2008. His “long-time” managers have displaced him from the hard-working friendly Clancy family. They will remain to make you feel welcome every day of the week for years to come.

Maloney’s Irish Pub
Maloney’s Irish Pub is an Irish pub joint-ownership by two bad a** ladies, Kris and Jordan. They assume the bar in September of 2019 when the previous owner, Wendy Maloney, decided it was time to sell the bar. The Maloney’s community and family were shattered by the true end of a 10-year era. The manager at the time, Kris, and patron, Jordan, decided they were fit for the challenge and they stepped in to take over the great legacy of Maloney’s.
Everyone is welcome and they are always approving new people into the Maloney’s family. You will be greeted by an intimate community of patrons and a wide range of stragglers looking for a place to sit and drink a cold one. You will find passionate games of the tower (if you don’t know come find out), lit trivia, competitive-in-a-fun-way sand volleyball, and a staff that has heart. They are said to have the best selection of Irish whiskey in Omaha.

Brazen Head Irish Pub
Brazen Head Irish Pub was for centuries the site of much designing and intrigue as revolutionaries of different eras found it a refuge in which to conspire. Robert Emmett, Daniel O’Connell, and Tim Healy, among others, drank and planned within its ancient walls. The Brazen Head of Omaha, in its totality, was established to mimic the rich traditions that have made authentic Irish pubs across Ireland famous. Thus, they pick the oldest and most revered pub in Dublin as their paradigm.
The establishment was built in 1198 A.D. at the head of the River Liffey, where the Norman soldiers protected the gate that provided the only access into Dublin. On cold, damp nights, these soldiers would heat their hands over brazers (barrels of fire). Therefore, they called this hotel/pub in Dublin the Brazen Head, for the location at the head of the River Liffey and for the “brazers” that the soldiers used to warm their hands.

“Good food, great selection of beer, whiskey, and Irish Coffee. Kilkenny on tap. Servers are always friendly and attentive.” – Alan B.
Dubliner Pub, Vance and his wife Cindy, who also own Cohen & Kelly’s Lounge in West Omaha, purchased the famous bar from its second owner in 1999.“For years, his wife and he had listened to how much this is like Irish pubs. They thought they were just being courteous until they had the opportunity to go to Ireland, and you know what? They were right. They cultivated the Dubliner’s predecessor, Horbach’s, in the basement space that included the area once used for coal intake and storage. Raising the pub’s profile as the best thing across the pond from a typical pub in Ireland, the McGills soon renamed the establishment Dubliner Pub and operated it until 1989.
“Great, neighborhood, family-owned bar just blocks from my home. Love music and an incredible open mic hosted every Monday night by Brooke Barsell.” – Mike G.
