What Would You Like To See Replace Irish Pat's?

The spot at 6250 Ulmerton Road has been home to numerous establishments over the years. With the property now vacant, we want to know what you would like to see there.

The building at 6250 Ulmerton Rd. has been home to a number of restaurants over the last dozen years, including sports bars, seafood shacks, a couple of "breast-aurants" and no fewer than three Irish pubs.

In the past two years alone, the 2,800-square-foot building at the intersection of U.S. 19 in the Largo-Clearwater area has housed two such pubs, O'Boobigan's and Irish Pat's Bar & Grill.

But with Irish Pat's having closed its doors recently, the spot is now available again. And according to an employee of the property owner, T.L. Hunt, Inc., the reason for the turnover is twofold.

"It's a great location, but some people don't know what it takes to run a successful restaurant," Katie Goff told Patch by phone.

"That place has been very successful at times. In other cases, not so much."

Goff, who has worked for the company for several years, said they are currently in talks with two potential clients to lease the property.

She also said she would be anxious to hear any suggestions as to what the public would like to see there.

"I can say almost everyone who has sold it since I've been here has made a profit. I would love to see what people feel should be in that spot.

"They have to keep in mind where it is, and what it's surrounded by," she added. "There's a strip club behind it, so you have to take that into consideration."

So, Largo residents, what kind of establishment would you like to see at 6250 Ulmerton Rd.? Let us know in the comments below.
