Back in the fall of 2020 a bit of interesting news came out about Conor McGregor buying a pub. Not all that interesting given the sheer amount of business holdings the Irish sports star has accumulated over the past several years, but there’s something rather unique about the Black Forge Inn, located in McGregor’s hometown suburb of Crumlin, Ireland.
It’s where Conor McGregor sucker punched an old guy.
No, not the old man at the Marble Arch pub in Drimnagh, Dublin (although McGregor bought that pub as well in April of 2021). No, we’re talking about the Black Forge Inn in South Dublin where McGregor allegedly punched up an elder member of the Kinahan gang.
Since buying the Black Forge Inn, McGregor has spent a reported 3 million euro renovating the place, and now he’s giving people a look inside with this very cool drone video one shot:
McGregor’s team undoubtedly took inspiration from this drone video one shot of a bowling alley that even had Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn saying ‘Holy s—t!’
Oh my God this drone shot is stupendous. pic.twitter.com/bUcfRtq70O— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 9, 2021
No word yet on exactly when the Black Forge Inn will re-open, but the date is clearly nearing with the place looking quite done and ready to serve people. All we need now is Conor McGregor back from California where he’s recuperating from surgery on his leg broken against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
Is it really a McGregor pub if McGregor isn’t there to potentially punch you for some slight, real or imagined? We think not.
