There will be plenty of green beer to go around Las Vegas this St. Patrick’s Day. But where should you really spend your green while wearing green this Sunday, March 17? As mentioned in Seven Nights, Hyde has a special edition of its XIV Sessions, but what about the rest of the party places? Here are our picks for where to get your Irish on.
You can start your imbibing early on March 16 for the St. Patty’s Day Edition of Lavo Brunch. It’s also the final brunch of the season before the city kicks into pool-party mode, so stop by to enjoy an open Guinness bar till 3 p.m., and sounds by DJ Lema. (In the Palazzo, 2 p.m., LavoLV.com.)
Ghostbar will also be celebrating early with the Day Before St. Patty’s Day edition of GBDC on March 16 with Exodus and Mark Stylz on the ones and twos. Plus, you can join Stylz again the next say for a special Sunday GBDC, just for St. Patrick’s Day with a hosted Miller Lite bar till 2 p.m. (In the Palms, 1 p.m., Palms.com.)
After you’re feeling good and Irish (i.e. totally wasted like my ancestors were), bust out a jig during the Flogging Molly concert at the Boulevard Pool on March 16. (At the Cosmopolitan, 9 p.m., CosmopolitanLasVegas.com.)
If you want to go the more traditional route on March 17, start the day off at Rí Rá Irish Pub with a classic meal of Emigrant’s Corned Beef & Cabbage and multiple Guinness-inspired mixed pints. Plus the pub will hold a St. Patrick’s Day Festival on March 16 and 17 with Irish-y music and dancers. (In The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, 2 p.m., RiRa.com.)
Prefer to stumble from pub to pub? Collective Zoo hosts its second-annual St. Patty’s Day Bar Crawl Downtown on March 17, complete with bus transportation from various Station Casinos in the Valley, your first beer on them and a social media scavenger hunt. (3 p.m., Facebook.com/CollectiveZOO.)
