Events — By thmeeks on March 16, 2011 at 2:51 am

Las Vegas loves a party, and there’s no better reason for a party than St. Patrick’s Day. No matter where you are in Las Vegas on Thursday, you’ll find plenty of drink specials, green beer, and the traditional corned beef and cabbage. But if you want your day to be extra green, you might want to head to one of Las Vegas’ Irish pubs or casinos. Where should you go in Las Vegas to experience the most Irish on St. Paddy’s Day?

On the Strip

  • O’Sheas is hosting a block party that will run through the weekend. They bill their party as the biggest Las Vegas St. Patrick’s Day Party. Holly Madison will be there to play beer pong with Lucky the Leprechaun on March 17 at noon. Revelers can enjoy live music,  food and drink specials.
  • At the New York-New York, “Celtic Feis” is another way to say: lots of Irish bands playing outside on the Brooklyn Bridge and inside at the pub, Nine Fine Irishmen. The party will continue all weekend. Admission is $25, and festivities kick off at 11:00 a.m. with the Desert Skype Band Parade.


  • Fitzgerald’s will be celebrating all day long beginning at 11:00 a.m.–Irish whiskey, green beer, food and drink specials, and prizes. The Fremont Street Experience will have free live music on its downtown stages in the evening, and the Fitz’s second floor balcony has a great view of the FSE.

Off the Strip

  • J.C. Wooloughans at the J.W. Marriott in Summerlin is so authentic that the bar was brought over from Ireland and reassembled in Las Vegas. Bag pipes and live music will keep the spirit of Ireland alive this St. Paddy’s Day. $20 cover to get in; doors open at 10:00 a.m.
  • McFadden’s at the Rio will be starting early–$20 for all-you-can-eat “Kegs and Eggs” from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Drinks and food specials will continue throughout the day. Entertainment includes music, bag pipes, dancers, and a bikini contest.
