I know what you're probably thinking, did this girl really call herself St.Patty?! And yes, yes I did! I really thought the headline to this blog post was beyond clever later to realize how cheesy it was! But hey, you're here and I am about to make your St.Patrick's Day planning a whole lot easier!
But first, let's talk about what this day is really for. St.Patrick's Day is a day to commemorate Saint Patrick, who was the patron saint of Ireland. With time we have made March 17th a day of festivals, celebrating the Irish culture, and LOTS OF GREEN BEER!
SHOW ME THE GREEN BEER
No worries guys, there will be green beer in just about every bar in Houston on March 17th! The question is, where do you want to get yours at?!? There are a lot of festivals and parking lot parties that will be happening all around Houston and I am going to give you the top 5 spots that I think are worth checking out!
Mo's Irish Pub
Mo's Irish Pub has two locations, one in Katy and one in Cypress. Both locations are having a huge St.Patrick's day party. Both locations will have their parking lots blocked off with fences and the party will be in and outdoors. There will be live music, green beer, and bag pipers. I personally have not been to Mo's Irish Pub but I know a couple of people that work at the Katy location and they say they have been planning this for months! ALSO - as of now, there will not be a cover charge at the Katy location!
Mo's is having a breakfast event that is kid friendly. Traditional Irish breakfast will be served. You can reserve / buy your tickets with the link below.
Griff's Irish Pub
Griff's is located in Montrose! With it being one of the older Irish pub's in Houston, you may run into an "older" crowd, but don't let that keep you away. Griff's will have live music and a dj. They have an entire lineup for the day. Bagpipers, irish dancers, face painters and again GREEN BEER! Presale tickets are $5 and can be purchase below.
Sherlocks Pub off Westheimer is where I have spent the last couple of St. Patrick's Days at! It is always a great time but take note that it gets pretty PACKED! Sherlocks will have a a huge parking lot party and the cover is $10. They will have live music, a dj, food trucks, and more green beer than you can drink! Doors open at 5 p.m. and close at 2 a.m.
Irish Cowboy is known to throw the hottest and biggest St.Patrick's Day party. They will have food, live music / dj, and green beer. The cover for Irish Cowboy is $25. That is the price for general admission and access to all the bars. Irish cowboy is located in midtown. Although the cover is a little higher than the other places, Irish Cowboy is one of the largest locations with more bar access. You can purchase your general admission ticket with the link below.
Lucky's Pub Downtown
Oh my, Lucky's Pub might take the winner on their party event for March 17th. They will have live music all day, they have a line up that can be found on the link below . Parking downtown is never free but you can purchase a parking pass for that day. There is no cover before noon. After noon you can purchase a $12 (includes fee) general admission ticket. The day of general admission will be at least $15. They also have a VIP ticket that can be purchased that includes a private area with private bars, complimentary drinks, food provided by chuy's, commemorative Makers Mark dipped items, commemorative glass, shirt, cigar, & a swag bag. Lucky's Pub will have the hottest and best known food trucks as well. Besides music, green beer, and lots of food options, 94.5 the buzz radio station will be broadcasting there all day! I don't know about you, but I think I found my party spot at!
