Where to Celebrate St. Paddy’s in Philly


One of the biggest party days of the year is almost here! On St. Patrick’s Day (and the weekends before and after!), Center City Philadelphia becomes a sea of green as partiers don their shamrocks and raise a glass (or a few) to the holiday. With nearly every bar going green for the occasion, it can be hard to find an authentic spot to celebrate St. Patty’s—but luckily your Crane Chinatown apartment is right near a longtime Irish staple.

Tir Na Nog is one of the area’s biggest and most well-known Irish spots. Located less than one mile from your Crane Chinatown apartment, the venue embraces its Irish roots with soccer and rugby always on the TV, a menu that fuses American and Irish favorites, Guinness flowing and lots of Irish music—all of which is kicked up a notch come St. Patrick’s Day.

This year, Tir Na Nog is hosting four days of fun for the holiday. On March 7, catch brunch specials and a full day of 6 Nations ruby games. The following week, on March 14, doors open at 7:15 a.m. for 6 Nations games, and, if you prefer to not start your celebrations that early, swing by starting at 3 p.m. for live music from Hunt the Hare, an Irish Celtic band. After the city’s St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 15, head to Tir Na Nog for live music from Irish band John Brynes (and no cover!). Then, on the big day, doors open at 8 a.m., with the full food and drink menu available and the cover not starting until 3 p.m. Stick around all day for live Irish dancers and Irish music. 

So break out the green beads and get ready to celebrate St. Patty’s in Philly!
