From Thomastown to Syracuse

The History Kitty Hoynes

Kitty Hoynes opened in Syracuse, NY in July 1999 in the historic Crown Building on the corner of West Fayette and Franklin in Armory Square. The Pub is named after David’s mother, Catherine (Kitty) and her spirit continues to inspire us every day to offer a truly genuine Irish Pub experience — the warmest hospitality, One Hundred Thousand Welcomes, and Mighty Craic!

The roots of Kitty Hoynes are in Thomastown, County Kilkenny, Ireland in 1920 where Grandfather, William Hoyne, started a thriving hardware, grocery, bar and undertaking business, Wm. Hoyne & Sons, Ltd. A typical Irish small town business, its diverse history included buying things like rabbits for export to the UK during World War II, buying wool from sheep farmers, cutting their own meats for the grocery store, making hand hewn coffins, selling farmer’s feedstuffs, bottling Guinness and Whiskey from wooden casks into individually labelled bottles, auctioneering land and tillage, and stocking builders materials.

David spent his childhood helping his father, Michael Hoyne, run the family business. It was there that David learned the hospitality trade before moving to America and working in and managing fine Irish pubs and restaurants in the Washington, DC and Virginia areas. David met Cindy (a native of Syracuse) in Washington, and they were married in 1991. They relocated to Syracuse in 1999, opening Kitty Hoynes in July 1999. bar tradition continues today in Syracuse. Look around you and you will see the many bric a brac items from back then. The stained glass Pheasant doors and Fisherman from Kavanagh’s Pub, an old road sign from Kilmacthomas, old clay jars from the shop along with the many signs, fixtures and fittings that make Kitty Hoynes a traditional Irish Pub & Restaurant.

 

THE FOOD

Our Chef, Damien Brownlow’s philosophy of food is founded on his culinary principles of freshness, seasonality, and a focus on quality, locally-sourced ingredients scratch made with care to enhance their flavor. Through his travels to Ireland, combined with his endless creativity, Chef Damien takes on tradition, bringing classic Irish flavors to new heights.

Our menu conjures up feelings of nostalgia, comfort, and excitement.

 

PERFECT PINTS

Our mission is to continue to offer the very best draught beer experience. We refuse to settle, constantly adapting our draught list with changing seasons and trends.

From allowing kegs of Guinness the proper time to settle before tapping, and professionally cleaning our  draught lines bi-weekly, to maintaining proper temperature control and ensuring clean glassware, our staff works hard to always guarantee the perfect pint. Cheers!
