Best Bars in Arlington to Celebrate St Patrick’s Day
The neighborhood surrounding Lyon Place is always lively, but especially so during celebratory holidays such as St Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, and Halloween. As we approach St Paddy’s Day, here are some Arlington Bars offering holiday specials, deals, and themed events.
O’Sullivans is one of the best Irish bars in the region. Considering St. Patrick’s Day is the most important holiday for an Irish bar, you can expect drink specials, live music, and events all weekend long. The Facebook page touts their amazing weekend of live music featuring Greg Snyder, Britton James, Mike Leverone, and Willem K Dicke. On the 17th you can expect green beer, food specials, music, and Irish dancing all day long!
Ireland’s Four Courts
Nestled in the heart of Courthouse, Four Courts is a favorite local pub. This bar offers daily happy hour specials, weekly trivia, karaoke, live music, and more! For St Paddy’s day, the bar is sure to go all out. Musician Chris Cassady will be performing on March 17th starting at 2 pm, so put on your green and walk over to drink a couple pints and listen to the performance.
For those willing to venture a little ways a way for that traditional Irish pub experience, Old Town Alexandria has a couple options as well. Murphy’s Grand Irish Pub is one local favorite that will be celebrating on trend this St. Patrick’s Day! Join the crew for live music and libations all weekend long. This King Street gem will be offering Sunday brunch until 1 pm and performances starting at 9 in the morning so be sure to come out and raise a glass to St. Patrick!
If you’re willing to face bars that are more crowded than a typical weekend, St. Patricks Day is a fun holiday to gather with a group, drink green beer, and enjoy live music with more bagpipes than usual! Of course, residents of Lyon Place can escape the crowds by hosting an event in one of the party rooms or outside in the courtyard or roof deck. If the weather holds, residents can enjoy grilling and fresh air all weekend long without ever leaving the property.
