A day of drinking, partying and celebration will soon happen on March 17, also known as St. Patrick’s Day.

Although the “true meaning” of St. Patrick’s Day may get outshined by green beer and costumes, it’s day to honor Irish culture and the patron saint of Ireland — St. Patrick.

Las Vegas is clearly not a stranger to the party, so this holiday is perfect to partake in. The best and biggest parties, pub crawls and festivals will happen right in our backyard.

If you’re a tourist or a local who wants to party it up for this upcoming holiday weekend, we have your back!

From limited edition beer flights you can only get in Vegas to traditional Irish dance performances, here’s your complete list for the best St. Patrick’s Day happenings that’ll be perfect for you or the whole family.

  • Spend St. Paddy's Day At A Secret Speakeasy

    It’s hard to imagine that St. Patrick’s Day was once a “dry” holiday. For the majority of the 20th century, St. Patrick’s Day was considered a religious holiday in Ireland. It wasn’t until 1970 where pubs were officially allowed to stay open, and the day became a national one for celebration.

    St. Patrick's Day Party in The Underground - The Mob Museum

    St. Patrick's Day was once a "dry" holiday In Ireland. In 1921, Irish officials banned alcohol sales on March 17 in fear of excessive drinking. It wasn't until the law was repealed in the early 1960s that the Irish could once again raise a glass to celebrate the holiday.

    This tidbit of history makes an experience at The Mob Museum‘s secret speakeasy even more exciting! The Underground speakeasy and distillery will be celebrating a “spirited” St. Patrick’s Day with live entertainment, fun drinks and food specials.

    The speakeasy is located right inside the museum, but there’s a catch. You’ll need to find the speakeasy side door and say the password:Dolled up.”
