In 1984, Grand Rapids natives and friends Bill Quinn and Rick Schall purchased Pete Brown's Office, an established local haunt on Michigan Street. Originally, the bar was not characterized as Irish, but that began to change after Saint Patrick's Day, 1985.
On that day, a group of men known as "The Fenians" (many still beloved regulars) came into Pete Brown's. They proceeded to entertain patrons with the songs, stories and banter of Ireland, inspiring Bill to learn more about his own Irish heritage, and incorporate some of its memorabilia and music into the bar.
In 1988, Bill and Rick moved Pete Brown's Office to the current location on Plainfield Avenue. At that point, they decided to really turn the place into a true Irish pub, though the name didn't change for almost 15 years. Trips to Ireland, as well as visits from some of its finest citizens, have allowed Bill and Rick to create an authentic, welcoming space known throughout West Michigan.
Today, the walls of Quinn & Tuite's are adorned with posters, mirrors and paintings recalling the Mother Land. The pub's been recognized for the finest poured pint of Guinness in MI, named the best neighborhood bar in Grand Rapids through an MLive poll and given honorary mention as one of the state's best neighborhood bars by MLive's John "Gonzo" Gonzales. Something's always going on, whether it's the Grand Rapids Sport & Social Club, a meeting of the AOH or amazing music from Irish legends. Won't you join us?
