St Patricks Day In London

What's the craic London?

St Patricks Day in London is a site to be seen, it’s a sea of green; green decorations, green cocktails, green people… don’t be green with envy that you miss it.

St Patricks Day 2018 is nearly upon us & this year it's on a Saturday, WIN! Now we know it's an Irish thing so naturally you'll want to head to an Irish bar, however these are guarnteed to be rammo. Here are our recommendations for non-irish bars that will still be up for the craic.

The Warwick | Soho

This Soho pub is a firm favorite and always goes all out when it comes to St Patricks day. We suggest having a cheeky baby Guinness (or a lot of them, whatevs)

Jerusalem Bar & Kitchen | Fitzrovia

Jerusalem's motto is 'always friendly, no predjuduces, no pretences' and on the bases we couldnt think of a better place to spend St Patricks day.

The Long Arm Pub & Brewery | Shoreditch

Serving up the freshest beer in London, Long Arm Pub & Brewery is a no brainer for St Patricks day. Their ever changing beer line up and beer cocktails alongside a classic bar snacks menu will keep you there all night.

The Tankard | Lambeth

This pub is full of interesting beers, classic British foods and a roof terrace. If we by any miracle get a bit of sun on St Patricks day weekend, the roof terrace could be a bit of a win.

Aquum | Clapham

The team at Aquum are giving everyone a free Guinness of arrival between 9-10pm and free entry for anyone with an Irish ID free entry until midnight! They are open until 4am so you know it's gunna be a good night

Mabel's | Covent Garden

If you've been to Covent Garden on St Patricks day you'll know how rammed the Porterhouse gets, and how long the queues are to get in. Luckily Mabel's is directly opposite, so you can sit there laughing at all the people on the queue sipping a cosmo. Saying that Mabel's will also get super busy, so we suggest booking in advance.

Bar Soho | Soho

Bar Soho know how to throw a party and St Patricks day will be no different. Expect a lot of green, someone will more than likely be dressed as a leprechaun and of course all the drinks!

Alternatively you could brave these Irish gaffs to get you in the proper St Paddys spirit. We've said it before and we'll say it again, they will be absolutely packed! 

Waxy O’Connors | Piccadilly

The team at Waxy O'Connors take St Patricks Day so seriously their celebrations span a whole week from 12th March - 18th. Monday to Friday they have several whiskey tastings, inclunding brands such as Jamesons, Dubliner, Teeling Whiskey Co. &Tullamore Dew. 

Of course the big event is on the Saturday where they will be showing the 6 Nations Rugby in the day followed by Live music and giveaways in the evening. The party continues on Sunday 18th with the St Patrick's parade after party. 

It will be a busy weekend at Waxy's so we suggest booking yourself an area.

O’Neil’s | Soho

With the slogan ‘O’Neill’s was born to celebrate the craic’, you know you’re gunna have a good time here. One of the features they have is beer straight from the tank, which are on display behind the bar.

Porterhouse | Covent Garden

The largest bar in London, is slap bang in Covent Garden and its Irish! Who would have thought it!  However when you’re in the Porterhouse, you would think you are roaming around London’s largest pub. You’d think you were in a maze of lots of different bars. Just be mindful, when you’ve had a couple as it’s easy to walk round in circles looking for your mates.

Philomena’s | Covent Garden

Philomena’s is a welcome watering hole break on the short walk between Covent Garden and Holborn Tube stations. In the summer the outside area is normally heaving with people enjoying ‘the weather’, be wear there are very few seats outside so, make sure you’re wearing comfy shoes.

The Toucan Bar | Soho

The Toucan Bar in Soho is somewhat of a hidden pot of gold (see what we did there?), they do very little advertising, so it’s one of those, if you know you know kinda places. They have all the Guinness you could possibly want and a warm welcoming atmosphere.
