St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most celebrated holidays of the year, and with it comes lots of corned beef and cabbage washed down with green beer or Irish whiskey, weekend-long parades and festivals—and tons of green apparel. If you’re looking to join in on the festivities, you’re in luck. Here are some of the best places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

This historic restaurant is one of the oldest in L.A., and also one of the most festive for St. Patty’s Day. On March 17, the eatery will begin a day-long celebration that includes a party tent with live music, traditional Irish fare, and enough beer and whiskey to last well into the night. The festivities begin at 10:30 a.m. and continue until the last patron calls it quits and heads home.
