Singles Celebrate Valentine’s Day with St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Party at British Open Pub

Scottsdale, Ariz.  – For those Valley singles whose love lives resemble a massacre more than a movie romance, Scottsdale’s British Open Pub has just the ticket this year – a St. Valentine’s Day Massacre party at the popular Scottsdale pub.

Traditionally, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre is known as the 1929 murder of seven mob associates as part of a prohibition era conflict between two powerful criminal gangs in Chicago: the South Side Italian gang led by Al Capone and the North Side Irish gang led by Bugs Moran.

But Valley singles can party like prohibition-era bar flies during British Open Pub’s St. Valentine’s Day Massacre party and keep that sad sack, lonely heart sorrow at bay with themed drinks and meals that hearken back to the happy days of flappers, hip chicks, mad mobsters and juicy gin joints.

“Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Valentine’s Day,” said Gregg Troilo, owner of the British Open Pub. “Our love lives may be in shambles but we’re making a party of the day anyway.”

The drink specials for the day include the Al Capone, Bugs Moran and Marilyn Monroe – for her role as Sugar in Some Like It Hot, Hollywood’s famous comedic nod to the prohibition era.

Food specials include:

The Green Door - Named after the famous, Chicago Green Door Tavern, the green door was a sign to anyone passing that a speakeasy was inside.

The Capo di Capi - Feeling like a big-shot? Order the Capo di Capi, and like the leader of all leaders or boss of bosses, you’ll dine in style (meal description here).

La Cosa Nostra - Order La Cosa Nostra and, like the phrase says “the our thing” – the thing we’re famous for, English-style fish and chips served up crispy and hot!

Abe’s Cabe - This meal is priced after its namesake, the five dollar bill. Dine on a budget and get our (food description here).

The 18th Amendment - Put the 18th Amendment to rest with this drink and dining special, including a pitcher of pitcher of (type here) draft and your choice of two appetizers for you and your friends.

Every day is a holiday at British Open Pub, with a revamped and extended happy hour that now includes specials like new $3 well drafts on rotating taps, including Guinness, Smithwick’s Ale, Oak Creek Nut Brown Ale, Stella, Blue Moon, Sam Adams’ Octoberfest, Boddingtons Pub Ale, Strongbow Apple Cider, Bud Light and Lagunitas’ IPA, among others.

New Happy Hour appetizer specials include $2 quesadillas and a variety of $3 appetizer baskets, including cheese ravioli, egg rolls, spinach and cheese ravioli, fried mushrooms, fried green beans, hot sausage links, Cajun sausage links, and, a bar favorite, tater tots with beer cheese and bacon crumbles.

On Saturdays, from 8 p.m. to close, women can enjoy ladies’ night with $4.50 Stoli vodkas in a variety of flavors, including vanilla, blueberry, strawberry, peach and chocolate raspberry. The bar also offers two martini specials each week for $5 each.

Scottsdale’s British Open Pub, or the “BOP” as regulars call it, has something for everyone.

Whether it’s authentic English food like Bangers and Mash, traditional American comfort food, a massive selection of beers from around the world or simply a fun pub to watch the day’s biggest sporting events, the BOP is the spot for foodies and sports fans.

The British Open Pub is located at 1334 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, Arizona, on the southwest corner of Scottsdale and McDowell roads.
