Finnegan's MArin
“One of the things I remembered so well from a college semester spent in the UK was the pubs. Of course the hand-pumped carbon-dioxide-free ales were memorable, but even more foreign and unforgettable was the notion of entire families, from infants to grandparents, gathering at these warm, inviting establishments to enjoy a pint (not the kids) and a Ploughman’s or a steak and kidney pie. It was so utterly at odds with our American versions of a bar with its loud jukeboxes and rowdy college-age kids. Finnegan’s Marin reminded me of the more civilized version abroad.” – Pacific Sun

OUR STORY

In 1980 our family opened a neighborhood pub in northern New Jersey. In a friendly town similar to this one, Finnegan’s provided a place for locals to eat, drink and congregate as a community. Named after patriarch Patrick Finnegan, this warm gathering spot grew and thrived in this down-to-earth borough not far from New York City.

Finnegan’s Marin has replicated the feel that local Henry Hautau, grandson of Patrick Finnegan, grew to love and appreciate during his time spent “home” in New Jersey. Finnegan’s Marin is bringing its own version of wonderful food, lively night life, and down-home community to Downtown Novato.

Finnegan’s harkens to a day-a place-when and where life was easier and the pace was slower. Where friends and family spent more of their time enjoying each other’s company than planning what to do or where to go next. Finnegan’s Marin invites you to sit back and get comfortable.
