Get greened up, clovered up, boozed up, Guinnessed up, whiskeyed up, and sing your hearts out to Galway Girl. (And we mean the proper Galway Girl… we’re not letting Ed Sheeran step on Steve Earle’s toes).
Head to Hackney’s Round Chapel for a night of Irish history, Irish dancing, Irish music, and Irish food. Throw it back to Ireland’s Pagan roots, in an evening of immersive performance and traditional entertainment, all in honour of St Paddy. Tuck into fantastic food cooked by Masterchef star, Ingrid Wakeling, such as beef and Guinness Stew and whiskey smoked salmon. The evening’s soundtrack will be provided by legendary folk-pop band, Honeyfeet, who will have you toe-tapping all night. Tickets for the banquet are almost sold out, but you can always join in with the party. Anyway, they say eating is cheating…. right?
Get boozy, rowdy and, er, green at The Coronet‘s St Paddy’s Party. There’ll be face painting, comedy, burlesque dancers, drinking games (obviously), live Irish music and vodka jelly (because why not?). Book through Fever and you’ll also get a ticket to the after party at Belushi’s (if you can handle any more Guinness, that is).
3. Whiskey at The Bloomsbury Club Bar
The Bloomsbury Club Bar is teaming up with The Dingle Whiskey Distillery to put on a proper Irish seisiún (our new favourite word) for St Paddy’s Day. Their Dingle Single Malt Whiskey will be exclusively available at The Bloomsbury Club Bar, alongside Dingle’s very own gin and vodka cocktails. Pair the booze with some traditional Irish river dancing and some authentic food, including Baked West Coast Oysters and Murphy’s Butterscotch Ice Cream. All you ever need for a good ole’ St Paddy’s Day seisiún (seriously, we can’t get enough of that word).
Fancy something a bit different for St Patrick’s Day? Get downright dirty with Kurious Kittens… and copious amounts of whiskey and Guinness, of course. The night promises lots of sexy dancing and, erm, Irish oysters to, well, help you enjoy the sexy dancing (if you know what we mean). Kurious Kittens is the slightly tamer and slightly cuter named sibling of Killer Kittens, so clothes will remain ON. (And make sure they abide by the dress code of “a touch of green, orange or white”. We are toasting the Irish heritage after all).
Hosted in a Secret London (wahey) location, Candlelight Club are planning a super secretive St Patrick’s Day party. Dress up in your best 1920s Irish attire (whatever that is) and come prepared for a night of classy cocktails, sophisticated dining and live Jazz. Despite the elegance, there will of course be lots of pointless green stuff, and a bit of a celtic twist to the live music. Obviously…
