St. Patrick Day is upon us, and Boston restaurants and bars are celebrating in a variety of ways.

You can find liquid nourishment with The Tam‘s Dublin Drop shots: Irish cream liqueur and Irish whiskey dropped into a glass of stout.

The venerable Sullivan’s Tap is serving the Dublin Strong, a shot of Baileys Irish Cream in Guinness, as well as Green Jell-O shots and Budweiser’s special green bottles.

Each sale of Time Out Market Boston’s St. Pat’s special cocktail, The Phoenix Feather (Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey, Broadsheet cold brew, Bénédictine, and house-made Irish cream liqueur), donates $1 to BAGLY, a local, youth-led LGBTQ+ youth advocacy program.


The Thirsty Scholar in Somerville will have live music, Dublin Drops, and a shepherd’s pie special.

In the Seaport, City Tap House’s St. Patrick’s long weekend, March 17-19, offers green Budweiser, green Jell-O shots, a Slane Irish Whiskey Mule, the Lucky Charmtini (Blue Curaçao, Amaretto, and Baileys), corned beef and cabbage, Irish nachos with corned beef, and a St. Paddy’s brownie with Lucky Charms and green chocolate.

Catalyst Restaurant in Cambridge offers the more sophisticated The Irish Garden, made of Glendalough Irish Whiskey, Chartreuse, elderflower liqueur, lemon, cardamom bitters, and spritz of absinthe.

City Works Eatery & Pour House in Watertown’s Arsenal Yards has week-long specials: Irish nachos with corned beef and an IPA cheese sauce, stout-braised ground beef shepherd’s pie, and beer cocktails like Dark Side of The Moon – (Blue Moon and Guinness), Snakebite (Angry Orchard and Guinness), and the Voodoo (Rubaeus raspberry ale and Guinness).

All Massachusetts Friendly Toast restaurants are serving an Irish “benny,” a muffin topped with corned beef hash, poached eggs, and
Hollandaise. There’s also Genius Green Mimosas, made with bubbly, orange juice, and Blue Curacao.

The Banks Fish House doesn’t usually serve Guinness, but St. Patrick’s Day is an exception. Pair a pint of the black stuff with a corned beef and fried oyster sandwich on rye with cabbage slaw, offered for both lunch and dinner.


A&B Kitchen & Bar prices cans of Guinness at $3.17 (while supplies last) and adds corned beef hash with eggs, shepherd’s pie topped with cheddar cheese, a shepherd’s pie burger topped with mashed potato, and Irish beef stew with Colcannon potatoes (mashed potato with kale and leeks).

At the Liberty Hotel, Clink’s four-course Teeling’s Irish whiskey pairing dinner features Teeling single pot still whiskey with seared Georges Bank scallops and Parma ham with maple jus, and Teeling Blackpitts pelted single malt with warm Irish blue cheese pudding and Blackpitts tossed winter greens.

And there’s that unique St. Pat’s burrito: Anna’s Taqueria’s corned beef and cabbage burritos are on sale all day at all locations, March 17.
