St. Patrick's Day Party


St. Patrick's Day Party

St. Patrick's Day Celebrations:

There is plenty of Irish celebrating to do before, during and way after the Kansas City parade. Here are some of KC’s best places to celebrate and drink a green beer or two.

Kansas City Traditions:

The obvious way to spend any St. Patty’s Day is to head to Kelly’s Westport Inn, located in the heart of Westport (500 Westport Rd). With their newly opened rooftop deck, it's the place to spend St. Pat's.

O’dowd’s Little Dublin is also another place not to be missed, with music playing all day and a great upstairs deck where you can croon to your favorite Irish sing-a-long at both the Plaza and Zoan Rosa locations.

Browne's Irish Market (33rd and Pennsylvania) serves up bangers and mash and all the Irish Breakfast fixings from 6:30am-11am.

Power and Light District:

The Power and Light District hosts their annual 'Shamrocks and Shenanigans' party in 2012. Live entertainment plays all day in the KC Live! Block starting at 10am.

McFadden's starts the day with Irish breakfast at 7am and new Irish bar the Dubliner opening at 8am for breakfast. Bar Louie will also serve Kegs and Eggs starting at 7am. Tickets sold in advance are $20.

The Martini Corner’s Street Party at 31st and Oak, hosts up a great time between their 5 bars with bands and DJs playing all day.

Lew's and The Well host their annual Irish Hooley starting with Irish breakfast at 8am at Lew's. Cornbeef and cabbage will be served at both locations starting at 11am. Expect live music all day.

Mike Kelly’s Westsider at 1515 Westport Road is a good choice if you are seeking a more laid back crowd. Doors open at 11am with drink specials and great eats.

The Gaf at 7122 Wornall will probably pull the laid back Brookside crowd and those who tire of all the green beer in Westport.
