About Two Fools Tavern

Where the Craic is Mighty

Two Fools Tavern is an unrelenting dream finally realized by folks who had a desire to bring a real Irish pub and eating establishment to Albuquerque, New Mexico. They envisioned and executed faithfully an authentic replication of the pubs they had visited in Ireland. The warmth, charm, European feel and essence is all evident in the Two Fools Tavern. The colors, furniture, pictures on the wall, the knick knacks placed throughout … and of course the ales, stouts and fine whiskies and cuisine of the Emerald Isle is all here to enjoy. The tavern invites everyone (of age) to come and visit, imbibe in a Guinness, artfully poured, and partake in your favorite Irish food.

Come join in daily for the camaraderie, the good times and the spirit of Ireland. If you’re looking for something different, something truly special, Two Fools Tavern is the place to be for cocktail hour, lunch time, dinner time or anytime.

We offer the largest Whiskey selection in the Southwest!

How it all started

Tom and Jeff are the two Fools that you will most likely come in contact with at the tavern. They have, jokingly, identified Pete and Alan as the Fools for following them into this venture.
