The Next Generation of Comfort

Molly Maguire’s Irish Pub & Restaurant opened in 2002 and became a mainstay in Clark, NJ as a landmark where members of the community could gather with friends and indulge in their favorite drinks and Irish fare. For nearly 20 years, owner John McPartlan embraced everything there was to love about a neighborhood bar, earning a mention in Irish Echo’s list of “Irish Hospitality Top 50 Honorees” in 2012.

Now, with CENTRAL Kitchen & Cocktails, John has created a new vision of what a gathering place can be. CENTRAL is more than just a name, it’s a philosophy: a place where friends can come together to enjoy the food and drinks they love but with a sophisticated twist.

Welcome to the next generation of comfort, where the atmosphere is delightfully elevated, the menu is consistently surprising, and the door is always open.
