Green colored beer standing next to mini burgers for St. Patrick`s Day. Food like this will be found in a lot of local restaurants on St. Patrick's Day in Las Vegas.

St. Patrick’s Day is upon us, and that means a lot of people will be packing those Irish pubs in Vegas. Which is totally acceptable. In fact, if you’ve never experienced that scene at one of Las Vegas’s pubs, you really should at least once. It is something you will not forget. The energy of an Irish pub is unmatched. But it’s not your only option in Vegas for celebrating the shamrock this year. There are a lot of local restaurants, many not Irish at all, still offering cocktails and food dishes to honor the old leprechaun.

St. Patrick’s Day In Vegas For The Pub-Goers

If you do want to go all out with your traditional celebration, obviously you have to go the pub route. And we have so many great Irish pubs in Las Vegas. On the Strip, you have O’Sheas and the Tilted Kilt in the LINQ. Nine Fine Irishmen is inside the New York, New York. And Rí Rá is in the Mandalay Bay. If you want to head downtown, you’ve got Hennessey’s Tavern on Fremont. That right there is enough to get your pub crawl on this year.

If you’d rather stay off-Strip for your pubbin’, McMullan’s Irish Pub is right by the Orleans Hotel on Tropicana. Even further away, there are three Sean Patrick’s locations scattered throughout the city.  So when it comes to getting your St. Patrick’s Day celebration on, pub-style, you have plenty of options.

Specials For The Non-Pub-Goers

If you don’t like the pub scene or aren’t a fan of broiled bacon and cabbage, there are other ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year in Vegas. A lot of our local restaurants are keeping their typical menus but offering Irish-inspired specials. And some of them look pretty darn good. One of the cocktails on this list has a Lucky Charms rim! I mean, come on! Shut up and take my gold coins.

  • The Broken Yolk Cafe

    A green apple mimosa stands in a tall beer glass on a white table. It is garnished with a thin apple slice and surrounded by St. Patrick's Day decorations.

    The Green Apple Mimosa from Broken Yolk Cafe stands on a white table surrounded by St. Patty’s Day decor. Not a bad way to start off your Irish holiday.

    It’s seriously awesome that St. Patrick’s Day is on a Sunday this year, at least if you’re a brunch person. Because you can start your day off with a green apple mimosa from thebrokenyolkcafe.com. Add that to their already awesome menu of brunch dishes. I love Betty’s Southern Biscuits & Gravy!

  • La Neta Cocina

    If brunch is your thing and you’re in the northwest part of Las Vegas, check out La Neta on St. Patrick’s Day. On March 17 from noon to 4 p.m., they’re doing specials for the holiday, while still serving their normal menu too. Specials include green pancakes with Lucky Charms, elote avocado toast, Churrasco and Green eggs, Trash Chilies, and more.

    They also have a selection of cocktails for the occasion, including bottomless green mimosas and green beer, Irish Mules, and green tea shots. La Neta is located at 1770 Festival Plaza Drive in the Summerlin area.

    **NOTE** There is a dress code that is strictly enforced, even at brunch. They call it “upscale fashionable” and request no workout attire or backwards caps. Also no pool attire, tank tops or sleeveless shirts.

  • Silverton Casino

    The Silverton Casino has two restaurants doing specials for St. Patrick’s Day. The Twin Creeks Steakhouse is adding two special dishes to their menu for the holiday. Including a Braised Lamb Shank entrée and a Green Velvet layer cake! Dishes will be available 4 to 10 p.m. on St. Patrick’s Day.

    The Sundance Grill inside the Silverton has my vote, though. They’re adding coffee-crusted corn beef to their menu. As well as chocolate iced box cake with mint Oreo cookie crust and Chantilly cream. Yes, please! Those will be available 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday, March 17.

  • Borracha Mexican Cantina

    I know what you’re thinking. But you can totally celebrate an Irish holiday at a Mexican restaurant. Especially when they have such a tasty line-up of Leprechaun libations.

    Borracha is doing specialty Irish-inspired cocktails on St. Patrick’s Day from 4 to 10 p.m. You can pick the Irish Margarita. Which includes Jameson orange, lime and orange juices, pineapple and a Tajin rim. Or the Shamrock Sipper, made with Jameson Black Barrel, strawberry liqueur, champagne and lemon. Or, if you love a good mule, try the Dublin Mule. Made with Jameson orange, pomegranate juice, ginger beer, and lime juice. Each cocktail costs $14.

    And while they’ve got all the fancy Irish libations, you can still go old school and ask for a green beer. Located in Green Valley Ranch.

  • Bottiglia Cucina & Enoteca

    If you love Italian food but also want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, this is your answer. It’s the best of both this year. Available exclusively the entire month of March, Bottiglia will have $18 specialty cocktails.

    The Irish Charm is a must-try. Made with Baileys Irish Cream, vanilla vodka, espresso, complete with a Lucky Charms rim. Very unique, and probably pretty darn tasty.

    They also have the Dublin Down spin on the Moscow Mule. Made with Jameson Irish Whiskey, Fever Tree ginger beer and lime juice.

    Both sound amazing. Both available on St. Patrick’s Day. Bottiglia is open 4 to 10 p.m. on Sundays. Located inside Green Valley Ranch.

  • Tailgate Social

    If you’re a little less Irish pub, a little more Sports bar, this is the place for you on St. Patrick’s Day. Located inside Palace Station, Tailgate Social has all your favorite bar food. Plus some Irish cocktails on Sunday, March 17.

    Specialty cocktails start at $14. Including a Dublin Mule, made with orange Jameson, pomegranate juice, ginger beer and lime juice. Or warm up with the Irish coffee, made with Jameson, espresso, simple syrup and a cinnamon stick.

    If you’re a fan of the Irish Car Bomb, ask for the Irish Slammer. It is their pint of Guinness with the Jameson Whisky shot inside. And if you’re just going for the basic green beer thing, they’ll have that too.

  • STRAT Las Vegas

    Not only will the STRAT light up green for St. Patrick’s Day, but it’ll have specialty cocktails and food throughout their restaurants. PT’s Wings & Sports, REMIX Lounge, View Lounge and 108 Drinks are all places inside the STRAT that you can look for Irish-inspired cocktails. Including five dollar Bud Light draft beers, free green Jell-O shots, and ten dollar Irish Slammers.

    For St. Patty’s Day food, head over to PT’s Wings for some corned beef and cabbage sliders. Or their braised short rib with green mashed potatoes and broccolini. The STRAT Café will also be offering food specials. Including a Reuben sandwich filled with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing with a side of French fries.

  • Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas

    Yes, it’s a German restaurant. And yes, they’re doing specials for St. Patrick’s Day. Enjoy their Gepökelte Ochsenbrust mit Weißkraut, which is how the Germans say Corned Beef and Cabbage. Made with a seriously tender corned beef brisket.

    They have drink specials too. Including the Screwy Leprechaun. Made with Malibu rum, Blue Curacao and orange juice. Top off your meal with the St. Patrick’s Day dessert, the Brotpudding with vanilla ice cream and whiskey sauce. Delish!
