Mulligan’s Irish Pub & Bistro

Experience the Irish pub culture with a pint of Guinness or a Jameson whiskey seated among barrel-shaped tables and sports memorabilia.
Mulligan’s Permas Jaya is JB’s first Irish pub. It was over three years ago that owner William Ho left his baker livelihood to open Mulligan’s after traveling to Ireland and gaining an appreciation of crag, a fond Gaelic expression for “fun”. Much of what you expect to see in an Irish pub is present: woody interior, fake fireplace, bright green and gold color scheme.
