Where to Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in Savannah
Bars and restaurants offering Guinness, green beer, to-go cocktails, and Irish food
The Alida, Savannah, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel
Live music dominates the day starting at the Trade Room and the Rhett from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with the Lost Square music starting later from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Food specials will include Guinness-braised bratwurst and corned beef Reuben to soak up those Irish cocktails like the Alida Irish coffee.
Churchill’s is an old-school English pub that stamps a shamrock into any Guinness it serves — not just on Saint Patrick’s Day. It’s a total hub for the festivities.
The Rail Pub
Kicking off the party at 8 a.m., the Rail Pub is known for its Saint Patrick’s Day breakfast of “Kegs and Eggs” to start a base for the long day of drinking. The first 80 people through the door can grab a T-shirt. Located in the heart of the Historic District, the Rail Pub will have a DJ all day, as well as an expedited line for to-go drinks.
Kimpton Brice Hotel
The Kimpton Brice is bringing Dublin, Ireland, to Savannah with an all-day celebration with Guinness. Find the Secret Garden area for the bagpipe breakfast and “Lucky Lunch” at Pacci Italian Kitchen and Bar.
Mcdonough's Restaurant & Lounge
The countdown is already on for Saint Patrick’s Day at McDonough’s Pub. With the parade route passing directly by the pub, McDonough’s will have traditional Irish food and whiskey ready for the crowds as well as bagpipers playing. Expect lines wrapped around the building for this popular local Irish establishment.
The Original Pinkie Masters
The Original Pinkie Masters will continue the Saint Patrick’s Day tradition of cheap beer and lots of locals. Proudly opening at 7 a.m., “Pinkies,” as known by locals, is a cash-only establishment and will celebrate its 70th Saint Patrick’s Day in business. In addition to beer, the Original Pinkie Masters will also have frozen drinks including Bushmills plus ginger and watermelon frosé.
