Welcome To The Starry PloughWelcome to The Starry Plough
The Plough is a full service restaurant, pub and nightclub that has been a staple on the Berkeley scene for over 35 years. With deep roots as an Irish Revolutionary watering hole, the history of protest runs as deep today as it did when we opened three decades ago.
We have nigthly entertainment and events 7 days a week, and feature the best acts from the Bay Area and beyond.
In everything we do, we hold dear the motto that we proudly present as the center of our establishment.
“No Revolutionary movement is complete without its poetic expression. If such a movement has caught hold of the imagiantion of the masses, they will seek a vent in song for the aspirationns, fears, and hopes the loves and hatreds engendered by the struggle. Until the movement is marked by the joyous , defiant singing of revolutionary songs, it lacks one of the most distinctive marks of a popular revolutionary movement; it is the dogma of the few and not the faith of the multitude”
-James Connolly 1907
