Two years into their marriage, Nettie & Cav said;
“Someday we ought to own a bar”
That dream was fulfilled in August of 2008 when an opportunity was presented to them to open what is now known as Nettie’s Irish Pub aka NIP’S. The logo was developed by a sign company that Cav contacted about creating a banner for the opening of Nettie’s Irish Pub on August 11, 2008. The logo you see today and although it is known as Nettie’s Irish Pub, which is in the scroll of the logo, NIP’S was also born!
While not documented, to date, but working on it, the location has a great deal of history and tradition through several different taverns that were housed there since the early 1940’s. It has been said that the property originally housed a tavern and an auto repair shop, which is the pub today. The tavern, which sat in front of the current pub, had a natural gas leak in 1947, and while unplugging the jukebox, it sparked and started the tavern on fire. The next morning, in order to continue serving beverages, they created a makeshift bar outside by putting saw horses with plywood on top of it in order not to miss a bit and begin serving. Sounds like they were Irish back then and was meant to be an Irish Pub at some point! After that, they turned the auto repair shop, into what currently houses NIP’S. There are several individuals that come in today that have stories about being in the pub, when it was one of the several other names, either with their parents, grandparents or just themselves. Whatever it was, it is very apparent, through the stories, that it was like family back then and one of the many reasons why, outside of who they are, Nettie & Cav continue that tradition and consider all who visit, “NIP’S Family”. They tag it as “A Fun & Down to Earth Experience” A place where you can go to relax, meet new friends, old friends, have some conversation, lots of laughs, a bowl of peanuts, a great cold beverage, enjoy some activities and just have some plain old craic! A place where you;
“Enter as Strangers & Leave as Friends.”
They are committed to “Best in Class Customer Service & Experience,” have followed and will continue following that philosophy through and in themselves and their staff, on a minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, month by month and year by year basis. They know and believe that people have other choices; therefore they will focus on “Continual Improvement” by asking for input, listening to suggestions and feedback to make changes to what the “NIP’S Family” wants rather than what they may want. They strongly believe that this is what created the best and most enjoyable experience one can have.
