Put on a green shirt, pull out your best Gaelic accent and prepare to be Irish for the day. We’re throwing a St. Paddy’s Day party at Pat O’Brien’s in Universal CityWalk that would make any leprechaun jealous.
The event starts at 2 p.m. and goes until 2 a.m. — a full 12 hours of fun. You’ll be able to enjoy authentic Irish food and specialty drinks as well as dueling pianos and live music. Get there before 7 p.m. for free admission.*
You won’t want to miss the star of the night, Off Kilter, a high-energy Celtic rock band that has toured all over the country. This unique band covers popular songs and Celtic tunes using an array of instruments including bagpipes, Irish whistles, electric guitar, bass, fiddle, and drums.
Grab one of Pat O’Brien’s specialty drinks to perfect the St. Patrick’s Day experience. Three of my favorites are:
A mix of vodka, peach schnapps and blue curaçao with a citrusy kick. This green drink will put you in the St. Paddy’s Day spirit.
Pat O’s Rainstorm
Van Gogh vodka, Midori melon liqueur, Don Q coconut rum, pineapple juice and blue curaçao. Forget gold, we want this drink at the end of the rainbow.
Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane
I saved the best one for last. This is THE drink to get at Pat O’s. Made with their very own Hurricane Rum and Hurricane Mix, it comes with two straws and is perfect for sharing.
Irish or not, we hope to see you at our St. Patrick’s Day celebration! Sláinte!
*After 7 p.m., the event becomes 21+. Guests can purchase (general or VIP admission) tickets at CityWalk Guest Service.
** Must be 21 years and older with valid identification to purchase or drink alcoholic beverages.
