You’re going to want to gather up all of your energy since St. Patrick’s Day is this Friday, March 17 and when it comes to throwing fun parties, Atlanta knows how to do them right. Other cities can’t compare and are practically “green” with envy! St. Patrick’s Day is a great holiday to get out and explore all that Atlanta has to offer. Here are some of the best bars in town for getting in touch with your inner leprechaun.

Next to Piedmont Park, you’ll find Park Tavern. Every year, they host their Get Lucky Festival, which features live bands and green beer all day long. Wait, does green beer count as a vegetable? On St. Patrick’s Day it does! 

Atlantic Station is also having one of the biggest family-friendly St. Paddy’s Day celebrations, so if you have little ones, bring them along! Complete with Irish dancing, face painting, balloon art and more, everyone is sure to have a great time.
