Greg strives to find new ways to personalize the guest experience by providing exceptional cocktails. He’s proud to be part of Cavan Irish Pub and loves what it brings to the Southside. He shares that Cavan has been dubbed “the Gay Cheers of Columbus” by some patrons. “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked through the door and been greeted with a warm welcome…there’s a genuine sense of community,” he said.
A unique feature of Cavan is T-Bone Tuesday, where guests bring a steak or other grill items and the Sisters of Lavender cook them to order on the back patio and provide salad, sides and dessert. Cavan offers events nearly every night, including the Southside Showgirl Drag Review with Hellin Bedd on Saturdays, karaoke twice a week and Drag Queen Bingo on Sundays. Greg invites everyone to try a new craft or import beer during Cavan’s extended Happy Hour weekdays from 2 p.m.-8 p.m.
Greg has been bartending for over five years. “I enjoy getting to hear the history of people’s lives,” he said. Greg especially likes to hear guests talk about their history in Columbus and how much the city’s LGBTQ community has evolved.
