No place “shamrocks” as good as Las Vegas does on Saint Patrick’s Day. Sure, some places may have rivers to color green and real-live leprechauns, but what Las Vegas has is a built-in crowd of party-minded people who take their celebrating quite seriously. You simply won’t find a better place to be than Las Vegas on St. Patrick’s Day, which is on Wednesday, March 17th, 2021. Who knows, you might even find the luck of the Irish is with you and go home with a pot of gold (or a pile of green cash)!
When you’re looking for the best places to honor the dear patron of Ireland, Saint Patrick, who not only brought Christianity to the island nation but also mythically drove the snakes out in his spare time, you can’t pass up the chance to pay a visit to the long-treasured institution of O’Sheas Pub. While it doesn’t have quite the same adorable charm that it once did since it moved from its original home as a scrappy little stand-alone casino on the Strip, and re-opened as a boutique bar/casino at The Linq, it carries on its well-rooted traditions of cheap booze, beer pong, and it’s “Saint Patrick’s Day every day” attitude. You can be 100% sure that there will be no place like O’Sheas to party your shamrocks off on this quite special holiday.
While we’re on the topic of Irish pubs, the other notable ones to consider patronizing for Saint Patty’s I n Las Vegas are Rí Rá Irish Pub at Mandalay Bay, Nine Fine Irishmen at New York New York, Rock & Reilly’s at the Strip’s Hawaiian Market Place, Hennessey’s Tavern at the Fremont Street Experience, McMullan’s Irish Pub at 4650 W. Tropicana Ave., and McFadden’s Restaurant & Saloon at Town Square. All of these fine Irish drinking establishments take Saint Patrick’s Day with great earnest and will have wonderful food and drink specials, entertainment, and plenty of “Irish for the Day” types paying homage to this most worthy holiday.
And what kind of Saint Patrick’s Day holiday could possibly be complete without a spin on the High Roller Observation Wheel at The LINQ, which will be appropriately lit green for the day; or, for the more adventurous, there’s a zip down the Fly Linq Zipline or going fully shamrocks out on the thrill rides at the Stratosphere. Don’t miss these opportunities to puke green beer and give your friends plenty of Instagrammable moments.
