Six St. Patty's Day Stops Downtown
No matter what your family history or heritage may be, on March 17th, we’re all dubbed Irish for the day. For many, this is a day celebrated with green beers and the best pub food in town. This St. Patty’s Day, we’re here to help you wear your green instead of spend it on less festive places! Take a look at our 6 St. Patrick’s Day stops.
First, let’s talk about the obvious, the literal Irish pub of Hammond, Brady’s Restaurant and Bar. Brady’s is famous in this community for being THE hot spot for St. Patty’s Day celebrations, and rightfully so! For the last 36 years, they’ve earned this title by slinging shamrock inspired green beer and throwing the biggest pub party this city has ever seen! Their festive beverages are complimented by live acoustic music on their patio and a DJ inside all night long. We know showing up to any event prior to 11pm doesn’t exactly make a statement, but trust us, you’ll want to get there early to grab a table.
We know, for some, St. Patty’s Day has you craving those delicious, pub inspired menus that we don’t indulge on during the day-to-day. Blackened Brew is the place for you! They’re the premier Gastropub of Hammond. We’re talking burgers, fries, loaded nachos, the works, and with countless beer options on tap, you can drink like a true Irishman. Here, you can literally eat, drink, and be merry.
If you’re looking to escape the college crowd but are searching for a quality St. Patty’s Day experience, give Benny’s Place a visit. This Hammond classic is one of Hammond’s few 21 and older bars! Concerned about venturing out in the weather? Don’t call on the luck of the Irish. Their awesome patio is equipped with fans and heaters so you never feel uncomfortable hanging out at Benny’s Place. Here, adult patrons can truly party til they’re purple – well, green, in this case.
Looking for more authenticity in your St. Patrick’s Day? Stop by the Hammond Farmers Market, booth 24 specifically. Here, you’ll find Henderson’s Hearth serving up the Celtic inspired gift from the garden. Things like Irish soda bread, authentic Irish soup mixes, and other heartfelt recipes can be found in this weekly one stop shop.
Rumor has it that there’s a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow? Well, we have something better that that, the Red, White & Brew! With numerous craft beers and other quality spirits, it’s insanely hard not to kick back and relax. There’s no cover, and they always have something extra planned to keep patrons entertained! Be sure to visit their sister shop, Boutique De Fumee’, for cigars too!
Picture this scenario. It’s Friday night, Brady’s is “too crowded,” you’re hungry but not up for the full restaurant experience, and you really want to enjoy the holiday with a beverage or two but just don’t know where to go. We basically just invited you to The Crescent. Order some mozzarella sticks or wings at the bar while you enjoy one of their many drink specials!
