About Our Name

Bloom’s Tavern, the brainchild of Irish entrepreneurs Noel Donovan, Eugene Wilson and John Mahon, is a lasting tribute to Joyce (one of Ireland’s four winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature), his literary creation Leopold Bloom, and the former’s extensive works.

The Dublin City adventures and encounters of one of James Joyce’s most memorable characters, Leopold Bloom, were made legend in the Irish writer’s literary classic, ‘Ulysses’. Bloom’s exploits were to become so renowned, that almost 100 years after his fictional feats were made known to the world, his name lives on in Manhattan’s 58th Street.
