Rare Olde Times

Richmond's one True Irish Pub


Rare Olde Times - A true Irish Pub hidden in Virginia. Serving authentic Irish food, drink, and experiences.

Rare Olde Times Irish Pub officially opened March 1, 1994(although it was still called “Loose Ties” for about the 1st year of its operation). This was a dream fulfilled for Andy Jennings, a soulful singer and guitarist, born in Dublin, Ireland. He named the pub after a classic Irish song that was a favorite of his father's. Andy and his wife Cindy performed with their band every weekend as “Andy & Cindy & Then Some”

Andy worked extremely hard to achieve his dream of creating a truly authentic Irish pub in Richmond. He became the pubs regular entertainment, head chef and of course dedicated owner. Since his passing Rare Olde Times continues to be characterized by friendly and loyal service, extremely supportive regulars; And continues on under the superb leadership of Michele Gomes (also from Dublin) and Rob Mercurio (an adopted Dubliner).

Any "Public House" is characterized by the people who frequent them.  We have been blessed with a loyal following of unique and special people throughout the years. Your presence shapes the feel and the mood of Rare Olde Times and is very important. We hope you enjoy your experience at Rare Olde Times Irish Pub, and that it can become a “home away from home” for you - a place to enjoy good food, good friends and good music.
