Irish Bred Pub
Covington has been a buzz lately, with the newest arrival to the Square. And, it’s no wonder. The Irish Bred Pub is a two-story Irish behemoth, complete with two fully stocked bars, and a huge dining room. Now, the buzzing coming from the Pub is the sound of the amps. The Listening Room is Irish Bred’s answer to live music. It’s a huge space where local bands can come to truly rock out. The Pub usually hosts two or three acts on the weekends, so check their website for a listing of upcoming shows. For something a bit more low-key, Irish Bred also hosts a Singer-Songwriter Open mic night every Wednesday.
You read that correctly. One of the best spots to enjoy live music is the Covington Square! Through partnerships with Main Street Covington and local businesses, the Square hosts musical concerts through-out the summer. Musical acts can range from bluegrass troops, to big swing bands, and everything in between. Be on the lookout for the Lunchtime Concert Series, starting every Thursday in September.
So, get out and celebrate #MusicMonday in Covington, Georgia! Find these and other great spots to enjoy some of our local talent. Who knows? You might even meet the next big musical superstar!
