A Little Bit of History
Established in 2011, nestled in historic Old Town Eureka (just 20 minutes from downtown St. Louis), O’Dell’s Irish Pub and Ale House have quickly become a favorite of the community. Owners Jerry and Tina O’Dell, along with their daughter, Tara, have poured their hearts into creating a family-friendly pub with an Irish atmosphere. O’Dell’s is always full of laughter, cheer, music, great food, and Eureka’s largest selection of craft beers and spirits.
The pub’s unique furnishings create a wonderful ambiance, making you feel like you’re sitting in a Celtic pub in Ireland. Whiskey barrel chairs surround a stone fireplace with a custom cedar mantel. Alongside the warm fireplace is a beautiful, antique tobacco showcase, which displays classic Irish barware and tobacciana, a theme seen though out the pub. At the focal point of the bar hangs a stained glass window dating back to the 1800’s from the early missions of San Juan Capistrano on the California coast. Located in the rear of the building is a beautiful, private beer garden.
As locals enter this historic building, many recall past businesses such as Sutter’s Store – Grocery and Hardware. Many reminisce about the days they stood on the same pumpkin pine flooring as a child. Others may come in and find familiarity in our antique bar, salvaged from Labadie’s, “The Hitching Post”.
O’Dell’s has hosted and participated in local charitable events such as a pub crawls, block parties, theme days, and other events to support local causes. Efforts have raised over $30,000 for charities such as Ronald McDonald House, St. Baldrick’s Cancer Foundation, and local schools.
Whether you’re out for a night on the town with your friends,
family, or sweetheart you will surely have a memorable evening.
