Where to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day 2018 in New York City

It’s that time of year again—break out your best green attire and throw on some beads for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Whether you’re a true Irishman or just partaking in the day’s revelry, these are the best spots to stop in for a pint in honor of the Emerald Isle.
 
This classic Irish Pub pays homage to one of Ireland’s most famed writers, James Joyce. Calling the Upper East Side home for over 40 years, this spot is a neighborhood institution. Offering fish and chips six days a week, a wide selection of beers (including Guinness, of course) and an Irish pub menu, it’s the perfect spot to have a pint in honor of St. Patrick. (1361 First Ave.; 212-737-3664)
 
The Irish Exit
This bar’s name says it all. Serving up drink specials, bagpipers and other surprises all day long, the Irish Exit really delivers for this rowdy Irish celebration. This no-frills bar serves up all the old standbys and is a beloved dive, making it the perfect spot for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration you’ll never forget—or maybe won’t remember. (978 Second Ave.; 212-755-8383)
For a more sophisticated St. Patty’s Day soiree, take a stout and whiskey class with Bedford Cheese Shop at their location on the Lower East Side. Sip and sample two stouts and whiskies, each paired with four delicious cheeses. It’s a low-key, weeknight way to celebrate. (67 Irving Place; 718-599-7588)
 
Lorley Beer Garden
This heated outdoor beer garden will satisfy your jonesing for a day of al fresco brews. This year, at their “Rise and Stein” event, enjoy $7 Guinness pints and green lager along with specials on everyone’s favorite Irish liquor—Jameson. Stop by any day from Thursday through Sunday to keep the party going. (7 Rivington St.; 212-253-7077)
