Owner Patrick Donagher is a third generation Irish bar owner.  With over a decade of experience running NYC bars and beer programs—including at Midtown beer behemoth Rattle ‘n’ Hum, Queens’ Alewife, and The Jeffrey on the Upper East Side—Donagher recently set off on his own to open Fools Gold. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment to date, it’s already become a beacon for craft beer and cocktails on the Lower East Side.
