Established in 2003, McGirk’s Irish Pub has become a destination for its authentic Irish Pub atmosphere, top notch menu, one of the largest brown liquor stops in New York State, a live music haven and a great place for special occasions. We offer on and off site catering and full bar/beverage services for everything from office lunches to a seafood buffet for a wedding of 100+ guests. Our bar in The Orchard offers an array of scotch, mixed drinks, craft beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages.

Think of our catering menu as a starting point – looking for a backyard BBQ for a family reunion in The Orchard? Planning an employee appreciation/company picnic? Plan for kids to be there, menu items right from McGirk’s Irish Pub are always a crowd pleaser too. Watch how fast mini buffalo egg rolls fly right onto everyone’s plates.

Need to find live music for your event? We have a diverse list of musician referrals (many of regional) from Classical to Jazz to party favorite covers from the 60’s to now.

The Orchard at Chenango Commons is quickly becoming the premiere outdoor venue in the Southern Tier. Loaded with amenities, picturesque views and award winning catering and beverage services, the venue also offers Event Planning.  Services include day of the event itinerary and floor plans, table setting and venue décorating, and the assistance of an on site coordinator. Envy Event Design is proud to be the event planning vendor of choice at The Orchard at Chenango Commons!

Envy Event Design offers a number of design and planning options in addition to those included in The Orchard Packages. Long before Pinterest, I was carrying notebooks full of design ideas and pictures to share with clients. Custom products like plate chargers, table runners, napkin rings, garlands, lanterns, signs and favors are part of the Envy repertoire! I  literally sew, glue, stamp, paint, decoupage and grow the design elements that are used in my table scapes and displays.I attend national trade shows regularly searching for growing trends, materials and concepts for creative designs to share with clients. Envy Event Designs has a treasure trove of antiques, serving pieces, specialty linens and accessories like jewelry, candles, umbrellas and more that are available for rent. This is a great way to stretch your budget and use timeless or multiple pieces that are not practical to purchase.

With years of experience in the catering and event planning business, I’ll guide you through the planning process, growing your ideas into a cohesive theme.  Your wedding day will be a unique experience, a collaboration of the Bride’s and Groom’s vision and an experience your guests will enjoy and always remember.
