The 10 Most Popular Bars for St. Patrick’s Day
Heading out to the bar for St. Patrick’s Day to throw back some whiskey, green beer, Guinness, pickelbacks—or all of the above?
Consider this list of the most popular St. Patrick’s Day bars in the Los Angeles area compiled by Foursquare. These were the bars with the most check-ins on March 17, 2011, and it’s a good list to keep in mind if you’re trying to find—or avoid—the crowds:
It’s worth noting there’s some overlap between this list and Complex Magazine’s 25 douchiest bars in Los Angeles: The Happy Ending Bar & Restaurant, where LAist editors got food poisoning and Dillon’s, where once some Nickelodeon stars got sloshed and tried to drive home, made both lists. But we had nice things to say about Rush Street in a review of its food on a quiet day in February.
We’re surprised Tom Bergin’s, Molly Malone’s and a few others didn’t pop up on the list. But you can check out our St. Patrick’s Day drinking map from 2010. Just do us a favor and don’t order an Irish car bomb or count on the luck of the Irish to avoid a DUI.
