JB finally gets some craic….
One thing we’ve discovered about the Irish is that they sure know how to enjoy a good pint, and have a great time doing it. Mulligan’s Permas Jaya is JB’s first Irish pub. It was over three years ago that owner William Ho left his baker livelihood to open Mulligan’s after travelling to Ireland and gaining an appreciation of craic, a fond Gaelic expression for “fun”. Much of what you expect to see in an Irish pub is present: woody interior, fake fireplace, bright green and gold colour scheme. An indoor golf simulator upstairs has proven to be popular, but those who prefer other ball sports can watch footie and rugby on the overhanging TVs or shoot some pool.
