First up is downtown LA’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Street Festival hosted by Casey’s Irish Pub. For those looking to start early, head over and get their Irish coffee at 6 AM. The festival itself begins at 11 AM. And what can you expect while here? Well, 450 kegs of beer, 1,200 bottles of Jameson, 30+ bartenders, and all the traditional Irish fare from Casey’s kitchen. Musical entertainment is also expected to keep things going until 2 AM. One thing to know is that there is a $20 entry fee after 11 AM. 

Kaffebaren & Mikkeller DTLA

Just around the corner from us is a fantastic brewery that links to a coffee shop. The coffee shop is Kaffebaren and the bar is Mikkeller DTLA. These two spots are great for anyone looking for independent, high-end beers. Mikkeller DTLA features more than 50 taps from the best breweries around the globe. While neither Mikkeller or Kaffebaren have St. Patty’s Day plans, they are still going to be a great spot to ring in the holiday with tons of cold brews.

Saint Patricks Day at First Draft

St. Patty’s Day is sure to be quite the scene over at First Draft as well. No major celebration is happening here either. But, they will definitely be celebrating. Plus, this pour your own craft beer bar is serving 70 different taps of craft beer, wine, & cider that are sure to make your tastebuds run wild.


Just like any holiday, celebrating St. Patricks Day anywhere in downtown LA is going to be a blast. Have fun and be safe out there!
