Landmark bar in Hoboken shutting doors

After 23 years of good times, O'Donoghue's Pub in Hoboken is shutting down.

It's a traditional pub that was the place to watch British soccer, as well as a breeding ground for many bartenders and entrepreneurs along Hoboken's Irish Row. Owner Ken Kosco is closing it at the end of the month.

Kosco is joining with business partners to open a new restaurant in the same spot.
