Is it better for a day like this to fall on a Saturday? On the one hand, it ruins a perfectly good excuse to drink on a weekday. On the other, Sunday morning. We’ve also included a few prospects to check out that don’t involve beer. But that’s not really the point, is it?
- Clever Dunne’s Irish House
“We will be OPEN AT 10:00 AM, and you’ll want to get here early for the big day! We love being Irish so much WE ARE NOT CHARGING A COVER, unlike the other Irish bars in Seattle. That’s right NO COVER on St. Patrick’s Day! We’ll have live music, and we request cash only in order to provide fast and accurate service. We look forward to celebrating our Irish heritage with you!”
- Chieftain Irish Pub & Restaurant
“We are fully stocked with Guinness and Jameson! We will have live music this Friday night at 9 pm and Saturday we will have music starting at noon and going through the night. We hope to see all of you this weekend!”
- The BottleNeck Lounge
“By far our very favorite holiday, we’ll open at noon this Saturday for those who can’t wait for their frothy pint of Guinness or a shot of soul-soothing Irish Whisky. We boast one of the best corned beef sandwiches in town: slow-simmered in Guinness and served on thick slabs of rye accompanied by cabbage. We’ll have specials on Jameson and Red Breast, Irish music from start to finish, kisses for everyone, Irish or not, and as always, we’re well-prepared for the car bomb, should anyone feel compelled! Hunker down for the day – for lunch or for dinner — but take a moment to swing on by and say hello. Sláinte!
- Other Coast Café
Serving annual corned beef sandwich with beef brined for 2 weeks in salt, brown sugar, juniper berries, allspice berries, cinnamon sticks, peppercorns, bay leaves, mustard seeds and clove. That’s gonna make one mighty fine sandwich …
- Cupcake Royale
“Come by and enjoy our Whiskey Maple Bacon, made with Jameson’s Whiskey or a Peppermint Party- Our cupcakes will be dressed up for the occasion and ready for your class or office parties!”
Also offering their holiday special “Cake Bomb” – Chocolate cake made with Elliot Bay No Doubt Stout, filled with a Jameson Whiskey buttercream frosting and kissed with an Irish Cream whipped frosting.

- The Roanoke
“Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day with us! Drink specials all day and Reubens while they last!”
- Cafe Kanape
“GREEN BEER will be provided in St. Patrick’s Day tradition! Beer specials will be $3 green beer and $6 Irish Car bombs all night! Bring cash! The line will be long if everyone is waiting for you to charge your card. So be courteous and pay with cash.
Everyone wears a plain green shirt and we perform art on each other. There is a full bar and DJ spinning all night.”
And a few that don’t involve beer… directly…
“You don’t have to be Irish to get lucky! Get your St. Patty’s Day festivities off to a great start. We’ll cover eye contact, body language, suggestive conversation starters, and tips to take it a step further. As a special bonus, shop after the class and get a 10% discount.”
