St. Patty's Day in Astoria - Drink Beer, Eat Cabbage!

Tomorrow's St. Patty's Day promises to be a fun celebration in the neighborhood, as many Irish and non-Irish bars/restaurants are having a multitude of specials. Check them out for both drinks and Irish-style grub.

Dillinger's Pub and Grill - Although their menu isn't final yet, they'll serve traditional dishes such as corned beef, shepherd's pie and even fish and chips. Drinks will be priced as usual. 46-19 30th Avenue, Astoria NY 11103. 718.267.0900

Il Bambino - Don't be fooled by its Italian-sounding name, the owners of this great paninoteca are actually Irish. They'll feature a special cabbage and corned beef soup to celebrate St. Patty's Day.
34-08 31st Avenue, Astoria, NY 11106. 718.626.0087

Blackbird's - The partying will start at noon and won't be over until late into the evening. They'll serve complimentary corned beef sandwiches from 1pm - 7pm and a plethora of drink specials such as $4 Guiness pints, $3 Bud Light and green beer pints as well as Irish whiskey shots for $4. 41-19 30th Avenue, Astoria NY 11103. 718.943.6899

The Quays Pub - A quaint Irish pub on 30th Avenue, they'll offer authentic Irish music, $2 pints of Coors Light and Irish food such as bacon, cabbage and potatoes. 45-02 30th Avenue, Astoria NY 11102. 718.204.8864

Cronin and Phelan - Although the drinks will be priced regularly, they're featuring a special Celtic menu with all the irresistibles such as Irish lamb stew, corned beef on rye, shepherd's pie and much more. 38-14 Broadway, Astoria NY 11103. 718.545.8999

Sunswick - Lots of partying will be going on here til late evening hours with Irish dishes such as shepherd's pie, cabbage and cheap beers. 35-02 35th Street Astoria, NY 11106. 718.752.0620

Irish Rover - Who would've thought that with a name like that, there would be absolutely no specials going on here. They didn't seem happy to speak to me so I guess that it won't be a Happy St. Patty's Day for them. Try it if you're still so inclined.
37-18 28th Avenue, Astoria NY 11103. 718.278.9372

Stove - Known for delicious Irish grub, you could always hit this place up for killer fish and chips and shepherd's pie. Not sure yet if there will be drink specials but like any good Irish establishment, they serve Guiness.
45-17 28th Ave, Astoria, NY 11103. 718.956.0372

Beer Garden - Although far from Irish, the Beer Garden will be celebrating St. Patty's Day with $3 beers, shot specials and green beer. Nazdravie! 29-19 24th Avenue, Astoria NY 11102. 718.274.4925

Fatty's - Again, not an Irish establishment but they'll serve Jameson and Guiness at $5 a pop. Enjoy their yummy grub while there - it's not Irish but it's still delicious. 25-01 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria, NY 11105. 718.267.7071

Happy St. Patty's Day Astoria!


  1. Foodista - thank you so much for this post! I've been searching for a good place to go to for the evening and now I have so many options :)

  2. Why no mention of McCann's? They are always a good time on St. Pat's Day and pour a great Guinness.

  3. Didn't think of them - do you know if they are having any specials?

  4. Koliba, for the win.

    Not Irish, but oh so good.
