How to Have a Memorable St. Paddy’s Day

12th March 2021

St. Patrick’s Day is usually an opportunity to spend a weekend bar hopping, getting in touch with old friends and new over beers and some great Irish food. Because of the current health crisis, however, many of those traditions have to look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get in the spirit of the holiday, all right near your The Victor apartment.

Nearby Philadelphia is home to tons of authentic Irish pubs, many of which are open this St. Patty’s Day for limited indoor dining and drinking, outdoor socializing and takeout. No matter your comfort level, you can find a way to embrace your Irish roots (or those you wish you had!) with some quality cuisine and brews. For instance, Paddy Whack’s in Philadelphia’s Queen Village neighborhood, less than 15 minutes from your The Victor apartment, has Irish influences everywhere—from its food menu to the drinks to the décor. The South Street locale offers indoor and outdoor seating along popular South Street, as well as convenient takeout and UberEats delivery.

Paddy Whack’s has been a Philly mainstay for nearly 15 years, popular with sports enthusiasts and definitely a go-to for St. Patty’s Day. If it’s grub you’re after this holiday, Paddy Whack’s features all of your favorite pub grub: wings, pizzas, burgers, nachos, fries and more. To really get in the spirit of the holiday, check out Irish faves like the shepherd’s pie and fish and chips. On the drink side, Paddy Whack’s has more than a dozen beers on tap and even more options bottled and canned, many of which are being offered to-go, as are the venue’s craft cocktails—the perfect addition to an at-home St. Patty’s celebration at your The Victor apartment.

So this St. Patty’s Day, even if you’re hunkered down, you can embrace the luck of the Irish with an authentic local favorite like Paddy Whack’s.
