McGuire's Irish Pub and Brewery is a popular restaurant and local landmark in Pensacola, Florida. The pub is located in a 1927 building which was originally the Pensacola Fire Department's firehouse. It later became a drive-in style restaurant called the Old Firehouse Drive-In. When the restaurant closed, the building became the home of McGuire's Irish Pub in 1982. The 20,000 square foot building has 400 seats in various themed rooms such as the Pipers Den, Notre Dame Room, The Irish Links Room and the Ruprecht O'Tolf Wine Cellar. On the inside, every square inch of wall space is covered with framed, and often signed, pictures of politicians, sports figures and entertainers, clever sayings, wood carvings, Irish knickknacks, a dozen moose heads. From the celling hangs thousands of autographed dollar bills whose collective value has been estimated to over one million dollars.
