Today we open Ironside, it’s been a tumultuous journey. When we started 8 years ago with a vision, a lot of passion and sheer will fueled by ignorance, we never imagined that we would get here. To see our community, suppliers and crew embrace our “different” vision and support our plight, and allow our establishments to be a part of their story is a gift that we will never take for granted.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to do what we do. We hope Ironside will not disappoint.

Thank you, Ira Glass.
