Where to dine and drink on St. Patrick’s Day

Celebrate by dining in or heading out

It’s been two years since images of packed bars on St. Patrick’s Day helped push Governor Roy Cooper to shut down indoor dining in restaurants. Whether you’re venturing back out this year or looking for food to enjoy at home, here are our recommendations for things to do on March 17.

Billy Sunday is hosting an event for those who prefer bourbon to Irish whiskey. Maker’s Mark Diplomat Sarah Poole will guide guests through pairings with a four-course meal, and pour the Optimist Hall cocktail bar’s single barrel selection of Maker’s Mark.

Camp North End debuts its Clover Crawl, with live music and $30 admission that gets guests a special drink at four vendors: Black Moth Bars, NoDa Company Canteen, Free Range Brewing, and Popbar.

Great Wagon Road Distillery opens at 7 a.m. serving Irish coffee, with Irish dancers performing at 6 p.m. followed by live music. Drink specials and green beer, as well as Guinness, will be available all day.

Midwood Smokehouse will be offering their smoked corned beef plate with cabbage this upcoming St. Patrick’s Day. You can order this from one of their five locations, but this dish will only be offered on March 17.

Napa on Providence will serve St Patricks’ Day-themed specials, like corned beef and cabbage, on March 17.

Patrick’s Gourmet will deliver a three-course meal on St. Patrick’s Day: a roasted beet and goat cheese salad and slow-braised corned beef, roasted potatoes, and cabbage with bacon lardons. Dessert is a flourless chocolate cake with Bailey’s Irish Cream sauce.

Pilot Brewing in Plaza Midwood will serve up free Irish Stew starting at 6 p.m. until sold out with the purchase of any beverage.

Sir Edmond Halley‘s will serve a special menu of Irish classics — including shepherd’s pie, corned beef, and Irish Guinness stew — starting at 11 a.m. There will also be live music and dancing.

Something Classic‘s Shamrock Dinner Package for Two can be delivered directly to your door. Options include a corned beef and cabbage melt, Guinness-braised short ribs, Jameson-glazed salmon, and Bailey’s Irish Cream cookies.

The Vintage will host a St. Patty’s celebration featuring all day whiskey specials and Filthy Hooligan cigars.

The Workman’s Friend opens at 10 a.m. with an Irish breakfast until 2 p.m. followed by corned beef and cabbage until 11 p.m. Irish dancing and music will take place throughout the day.
