The Top St. Patrick’s Day Parties of 2018
Austin’s Ale House
Located in the heart of historic Kew Gardens, Austin’s Ale House has been serving the local Queens community since 1992. With excellent service and a friendly, comfortable atmosphere, this trendy pub is the perfect setting for St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
From 3 to 5 p.m., there will be complimentary plates of corned beef and cabbage at the bar. During lunchtime and happy hour, they will have live traditional Irish music. If you decide to come at night, a DJ will be on-hand playing today’s top hits.
Last but not least, it wouldn’t be a proper Irish celebration without a drink special, like $5 Jameson shots all weekend long. Not to mention, ample bar seating, a comfy lounge and huge high-definition TVs make Austin’s the ideal spot to hang out and watch March Madness basketball all day long.
The local restaurant chain, Houlihan’s, is also hosting a big St. Patrick’s Day bash at their Westbury location. From Friday, March 16 to Sunday, March 18, the restaurant will be serving a very special menu that includes Irish classics like:
- Fish and Chips
- Reuben Sandwiches
- Irish Pot Roast
- Bailey’s Crème Pie
However, for the actual holiday on Saturday, you can enjoy happy hour pricing, including $4 Guinness pints and $5 Irish Mules, at the bar and lounge. There will even be corned beef and cabbage, bagpipes, giveaways and so much more.
Galo Tavern 18
Head out to New Hyde Park on March 17 and visit Galo Tavern 18 for a one-of-a-kind St. Patrick’s Day experience. You can grab a seat at a hi-top in their modern, spacious dining room for unparalleled drink specials, such as:

Fortunately, you don’t have to pay a cover! Also, if you can’t make it during the day, Galo will be hosting a DJ at 8 p.m., and the kitchen is open until midnight. Last but not least, all party-goers will be entered in a free raffle for a bottle of sparkling champagne.
