Troll Pub at the Wheelhouse will give St. Patrick’s Day revelry-seekers another option beyond the Dublin Pub just up the street at 300 Wayne Ave., which traditionally attracts robust crowds from the pre-dawn through the wee hours of the holiday. Many other bars and restaurants in the Oregon District and the Brown Street strip also are planning special events on Saturday.

The new Troll Pub Wheelhouse isn’t some cozy little hole-in-the-wall, either. It’s a 6,500-square-foot restaurant and bar that is expected to seat as many as 250.

The second location for the popular Troll Pub Under The Bridge in Louisville, Ky., the Dayton pub will offer an extensive selection of craft beers and bourbons and will offer a food menu that General Manager Ben Barker has described as “pub grub, but made from scratch.”
