It’s hard to believe, but Kenny’s Westside Pub opened up its doors over a half a dozen years ago on St. Patrick’s Day, 2013!
Sean Kenny is the owner and operator of this popular Peoria pub and he originally opened Kenny’s up on Farmington Road. Then three years later he moved the pub into a bigger and better venue in downtown Peoria and Kenny’s has been going strong ever since!
Their downtown location on Jefferson Avenue makes it a popular spot for before and after drinks at Peoria Civic Center shows and other downtown festivities.
Another thing that Sean Kenny has done is make Kenny’s a true musical showcase like no other in Peoria.
They have a concert room off from the bar and dining area with a large stage and state of the art equipment. Bands come in from all over the country (and out of the country as well) and he also hosts a lot of local bands and musical artists every week.You can check out some of the upcoming bands and shows by clicking right here.
Kenny’s is also known for their tasty and unique food. The menu is made up of all original recipes and the food is beyond delicious, fresh and always made in-house. Click here to view the entire menu.
Below are ten links to posts from some wonderful meals I’ve enjoyed at Kenny’s Westside Pub plus a link from an evening enjoying the live music at Kenny’s. Some of them are from the old Farmington Road location, but that doesn’t matter because when Sean moved the operation downtown, he took the entire and delicious menu with him!
So if you don’t have a dining destination for this evening, may I suggest Kenny’s Westside Pub in beautiful downtown Peoria?
