Rocky Sullivan's is a New York City Irish style pub opened in 1996 by the musician Chris Byrne (Seanchai and the Unity Squad, Black 47 and Paddy-A-Go-Go) and the journalist Patrick Farrelly (HBO's Left of the Dial, Irish Voice, Michael Moore's TV Nation). The bar is named after James Cagney's character in the 1938 movie Angels With Dirty Faces co-starring Humphrey Bogart.
Entertainment includes a pub quiz on Thursdays, Irish language classes on Tuesdays and live music on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Authors' readings, held on the last Wednesday of the month and on other occasions, have drawn enthusiastic crowds and top flight writers, including Roddy Doyle, Frank McCourt, Edna O'Brien, Pete Hamill, Rosemary Breslin, Jimmy Breslin, Mike Lupica and Brendan O'Carroll.
Rocky Sullivan's has long been a favorite of Celtic F.C. fans.
Starting in 2011, Rocky Sullivan's hosts a yearly 4 on 4 street hockey game in front of the bar on the first Saturday in March, which is open to the public. Michael Reynolds has won the trophy for best goalie every year.
