Saint Paddy Pub Picks

Top taverns for grabbing a pint—and a plate of corned beef and cabbage—on the big night.


From left, Stout NYC, the Parlour, and O'Flaherty's Ale House.  

George Keeley
485 Amsterdam Ave., nr. 83rd St.; 212-873-0251
This Upper West Side hot spot doles out traditional Irish comfort food and 22 brews on tap. In years past, pipers and drummers stopped by post-parade for an impromptu after-show. Don't be surprised by a repeat performance.

Kinsale Tavern
1672 Third Ave., nr. 93rd St.; 212-348-4370
Patrons can tune into the big hurling match (broadcast live from the homeland) and sup on lamb stew and a full Irish breakfast at this neighborly Upper East Side pub. A D.J. will be onboard for those committed to pulling an all-nighter.

The Parlour
250 W. 86th St., at Broadway; 212-580-8923
Defying expectations, this spacious pub not only has enough room for two bars, a separate dining room, a pool table, and a dance floor—it also has a menu loaded with light fare and salads. Don't worry: Traditionalists can still chow down on bangers and mash.

P.D. O’Hurley’s Pub & Restaurant
174 W. 72nd St., nr. Amsterdam Ave.; 212-873-1900
Bagpipers will be stopping by this sophisticated Irish-American pub all day, and they won't be there for the cozy banquettes and tasteful, Tiffany-style hanging lamps. It'll be the sixteen drafts and traditional Irish menu they're after.
