Mike Carty holds the keys to the future Rosie O'Grady's.

Rosie O'Grady's Has a New Home

Rosie O'Grady's, the legendary Irish hostelry in Manhattan, has a new home.

Owner Mike Carty was given the keys of the new home on Wednesday.

And that new home will be only yards from the old one.

Rosie's closed for the last time at its familiar West 52nd and Seventh Avenue premises on July 1 last.

The final closing was marked by a poignant staff photo outside the building.

But right from the moment of closure, and indeed the earlier announcement of closure at the end of May, Carty was on the hunt for a new premises.

The hunt is now over.

Carty said that the keys in his hand would open the doors of the former Ruth's Chris Steak House in the lately refurbished Michelangelo Hotel, just a block away from the old Rosie's.

That new location is 51st and Seventh.

Carty said that the new Rosie's was working on a plan to be up and running in March of next year and that he was delighted to be able to announce the reopening news.
