Not Mellow Yellow

I showed you the large Guinness clock on the side of P.J. O'Brien Irish Pub last week and thought I'd show you the front today. It would be hard to miss those vibrant colours even in the dark! I've never been in but have heard lots about it so will have to head down for a pint soon. It is located in the St Lawrence Market neighbourhhod and is right across from the mural that I showed on Monday.

You are so right, that is a very bright paint job but, I have to say I like the color combination.

Stefan Jansson said...

always nice to see the Swedish colors.

Halcyon said...

Has this been recently repainted? I don't recall those bright colors and I can't imagine missing something like this! :)

Karen said...

You wouldn't even have to know the name of the place! Just say "meet me at the bright yellow and blue pub"!

I laughed. Aren't those Swedish colors on an Irish pub. Whatever happened to green?

It would be hard to miss like this, though.

Can't miss that - but an odd choice of colours, as others have commented.

Yes, definitely not mellow. But I love it.

From the thumbnail I knew this would be a pub and an Irish one! I didn't click about the Guinness mural until I read your caption though. Love it!

Afterthought: I daresay that even if you are a bit the worse for wear, you won't be able to miss it for the last pint!

Wow, amazing!

Andy said...

Holy cow! Looking at the place is like being attack by colour. It's so brilliant.

Deb said...

Eye catching for sure, enjoy the Guinness when you visit ;)

A splash of colour in a grey world is a bonus. Eye catching, then pubs always catch my eye.

The building screams "Notice me"...Certainly a sunny addition to the streetscape.

I'm sorry, but this just hurts the eyes. I think I'd need a drink, inside.

Lois said...

It definitely stands out! If they wanted to get noticed, I'd say they accomplished it.

Jack said...

This is pretty special. I love the boldness!

William Kendall said...

Whoa! Fortunately the yellow is offset by the blue.

Randy said...

Colorful place.

Jim said...

Those colours sure stand out.

EG CameraGirl said...

Yep, the colours DO stand out!
