The landmark building at 11th and Howard that functioned for 40 years as a humble warehouse now stands tall as the magnificent, spacious and intimate M’s Pub. This cornerstone of the Old Market has repeatedly risen from the ashes during its lifetime, surviving a 2016 fire, a devastating 2019 explosion and most recently the pandemic. But as it has for nearly 50 years, this restaurant and pub still offers an experience akin to a European café or an old-town American pub.
The unusual, exceptional food will have you stoked to come back to see what the kitchen has concocted with imagination and culinary prowess. The drinks go down even smoother thanks to the service and time-machine-like atmosphere that always leaves a satisfying feeling in one’s soul.
For people who have been visiting the Old Market all their lives, this has been a source of great pride, magical conversations, and iconic eats and drinks. The amalgamation of those wonderful cosmic attributes has culminated in M’s Pub’s legendary status as a local, late-night food and drink spot, perfect for groups or individuals alike.
