Downtown Update: Downtown's Irish Bars


The Harp & Celt are side-by-side venues on Magnolia near the corner of Pine. The Harp is a bar while The Celt is a bar and restaurant. The latter serves pub grub but there are Irish items such as the Dubliner roast beef sandwich and the Belfast burger. But they also have Cottage Pie and Irish Stew, all in a setting of cozy wood booths.

Lizzy McCormack's Irish Bar, or just Lizzys, is located on Orange Avenue near the intersection with Washington Street. It's downtown's oldest Irish bar and they feature many Irish drinks. They say they celebrate St. Patrick's Day here every day but they'll be especially active tomorrow beginning at 8:30AM. Details here.
Previously known as The Other Bar, this Wall St. Plaza locale switched to the Kevin O'Ryans name early last year and is known at "the other Irish bar". The entire Plaza will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day featuring Corned Beef and Cabbage, Bangers and Mash and Fish and Chips. It's called their "Get Lucky" party!

I've heard House, Breaks & 70's in Embassy Irish Bar but have yet to experience any Irish music. That should change tomorrow as they celebrate St. Patricks Day with $5 Car Bombs, Irish Whiskey and Puddin Shots. Irish flags will be flying!

Last but not least, Irish Shannon's is a bar/club located along Church Street where Antigua used to operate. I've only seen live bands here but they do feature a number of Irish whiskeys and Irish brews. They'll have specials all evening tomorrow.
