The Black Rose is part of The Heart & Crown pubs.

The Heart & Crown in the ByWard Market has been in operation since April 1992. It opened with a 50 seat restaurant and a 30 seat patio. 5 years later in 1997, the company doubled in size when the Snug Pub opened attached to the Heart & Crown. In 2001, the company quadrupled in size when the Mother McGintey’s and Black Rose pubs were added and connected to the other 2 pubs. The Irish Village now stretches a city block in the Historic ByWard Market in the heart of Canada’s greatest city, Ottawa. The Irish Village (as some started calling it) consisting of 5 pubs now has a capacity of 490 people indoors and when all of the patios are open, the total capacity is 960 people.
