O'Gara's Bar and Grill

Celebrating the good times and great memories at O'Gara's on Snelling ave in Saint Paul.  Their home on Snelling ave was redeveloped and was closed in 2018, but the spirit lives on at their Minnesota State Fair bar and grill during special events and 12 days of the State Fair.

Cead Mile Failte is a common Irish greeting that means a hundred thousand welcomes.

O’Gara’s has been family-owned since Jim O’Gara founded the bar in 1941. Over the years, the pub has made a name for itself for its yearly St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, its association with Peanuts cartoonist Charles M. Schulz (who lived in an upstairs apartment in his teen years, as his father ran a barber shop in a space that’s now part of the bar), its welcoming atmosphere, and its live music.

O’Gara’s has housed various live event spaces throughout the bar’s history. Minnesota legends from Grant Hart to Cornbread Harris have made appearances at the pub. Here is a look back at some of O’Gara’s most memorable music moments.
