Once a year, everyone brings up how they’re at least a quarter Irish on their father’s side and takes to the pub for their share of green beer and fun.  If you’re new to the Phoenix area and want to know the best places to dance an Irish jig, we’ve got you covered!  Here’s the spots where the party will be this year.  

St. Patrick’s Day Parties in Phoenix

Seamus McCaffrey’s.  For several years, the original downtown Irish pub has brought the St. Patrick’s celebration to the streets.  Located in the heart of downtown on Monroe Street just west of Central Avenue, Seamus McCaffrey’s will provide your fill of festivities, including live music, traditional Irish dancers and, of course, plenty of Irish beer, all within walking distance of a light rail stop.  The celebration takes place on Monroe Street just in front of the pub, located at 18 West Monroe Street in Phoenix, just below the San Carlos Hotel.  For directions and a full list of St. Paddy’s Day festivities, head to www.seamusmccaffreys.com.  

Rosie McCaffrey’s.  After the initial success of the downtown pub, Seamus McCaffrey tried his hand at an uptown location named for his wife, Rosie.  Since then, Rosie McCaffrey’s has become Camelback Road’s beloved Irish pub, winning several awards over the years.  For the St. Patrick’s celebration, Rosie McCaffrey’s has a tradition of throwing the best party in the valley that lasts all day long, which includes dancers, pipers, face painting and live music.  Find more info, including this year’s list of live bands by heading to www.rosiemccaffrey’s.com.

Casey Moore’s Oyster House.  A hotspot even when it’s not St. Patty’s Day, Casey Moore’s is known as the most famous of Irish pubs in Arizona.  Snuggled into Old Town Tempe at the corner of 9th and Ash, Casey’s boasts an eclectic clientele, fresh oysters and seafood, and a huge party on St. Patrick’s Day.  When it comes to partying, Tempe knows how to do it well.  Find the deets at www.caseymoores.com.  

As always, be safe this year and get a designated driver, ride the light rail, call an uber, anything besides drinking and driving.  May the luck o’ the Irish be upon ya!
