Even if you don’t have Irish heritage, having a good time over several beers with friends at your local Irish Pub is cool. Even cooler? Celebrating the luck o’ the Irish at one of these Yelp-approved watering holes where every single day is treated like St. Patty’s Day. Cold beer in your glass, Shepherd’s Pie, or Fish n’ Chips are what’s on tap for March 17, but you can get the party started with this fine list o’ choices!
Dunwoody Tavern – 5488 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd.
This is the quintessential spot to spend St. Paddy’s Day – great beer, darts, and plenty of good grub to keep you sustained.
Pub Perimeter – 4400 Ashford Dunwoody Rd.
Get your hands on some Scotch Eggs, Fish & Chips, and plenty of ice-cold Guinness. Check back with these guys on March 17 for a celebration to remember.
Royal Oak Pub – 1155 Mt. Vernon Hwy.
The drinks are strong, the drafts are always flowing, and it couldn’t be in a better location for those on the perimeter. Don’t miss their brownie sundae either.
Ship & Anchor Pub – 5975 Roswell Rd., NE
The Irish Spring Rolls encompass everything edible on St. Paddy’s in a singular bite. Also, Yelpers can’t get enough of the Lobster Grilled Cheese.
Olde Blind Dog – 705 Town Blvd., Suite Q380
Plenty of kitsch with all of the menu favorites of old, Olde Blind Dog is the familiar friend that is always there for you when you need him. Check out their website for a preview of their St. Paddy’s Day party.
Pub 71 – 4058 Peachtree Rd., NE
As Todd P. puts it, “Friendly staff, fun crowd, cold beer, Irish whiskey…what else do you need from a neighborhood pub?”
Fado – 273 Buckhead Ave.
These fine folks host a slew of events leading up to the big day for ol’ St. Patrick. If you don’t end up at Fado at some point, you’re not celebrating correctly.
Stout Irish Sports Pub – 56 E. Andrews Dr., Suite 16
Grab yourself some Shepherd’s Pie and sidle up to the bar to root on your favorite team. You’ll walk in with an appetite and walk out with plenty of friends.
