Always a popular choice, Rula Live is once again unleashing some very solid St Patrick’s day merriment. This year, it celebrates with a week-long extravaganza from March 14 to 21. During this period, you’ll be able to get your hands on a pint of Guinness for only $60! On the Saturday before St Paddy’s Day (March 14), Celtic folk rock band The Naggin Eejits will be owning the stage from 10pm. And of course, the band will perform live again on St Patrick’s Day itself (March 17). Entry is free on both nights, so don’t worry about anything but your beer belly!

On the occasion of St Patrick’s Day, Taps & Bites is launching a new dark beer called Nitro Dunkel. March 17 will see a special ‘Clover in the Dark’ promotion of buy-one-get-one-free discount for the new beer, starting from 7.30pm until late. At 8pm, craft beer enthusiasts can meet the brewers of Nitro Dunkel for some malty insight. And if you’re feeling extra lucky, get your friends to participate in a team challenge of spinning the coin. The team that keeps the coin spinning for the longest duration will win a Hong Kong Lovecraft Beer gift set for each teammate, which includes a cooler bag, a bottle opener, a bottle of Helles, a bottle of Vienna Lager, a bottle of Eisbock.

This long-standing Irish boozer’s renewed Wan Chai location will be celebrating on March 17 with a special Irish-themed set lunch (from $98) to kick things off early. And in true Irish fashion, happy hour will last all day until 9pm. Draught Guinness is, of course, the signature drink of choice, but if that’s not your thing, have a go at Delaney’s new, exclusive Hop House 13 Lager that’s brewed in Dublin at St James’ Gate. This will be Delaney’s 25th year celebrating St Paddy’s Day in Hong Kong, so don’t forget to sample its largest selection of Irish Gins and Whiskeys in town, as well as its Irish craft cider and beers from O’Haras.

At this renowned Irish pub’s Soho location from March 14-30, get a Guinness pint and enjoy a $10 shot of Bushmills Irish whiskey. The classic beer and shot combo! Alternatively, enter a prize draw to win an Irish hamper with snacks, Irish tea, and Black Bush whiskey.

This intimate pub tucked away in the slopes of Soho will be serving pints of Irish stout and Irish red from O’Hara, and they’re only $50 all day for St Patrick’s.

To celebrate the boozy holiday, The Globe will also have some t-shirts and hats to give away while stocks last.

  • Central

Hidden away on the first floor of the Mandarin Oriental, The Chinnery is a great spot to unwind and chow down on your favourite Irish delights of Guinness-braised beef cheek, Irish slow-cooked lamb stew, whiskey cake, and a barrel full of beer. The special festive menu is only available from March 14-17, so don your favourite green outfit this St Paddy’s Day and drop by for some Guinness draught, Jameson whiskey, Teeling malt whiskey, or a cup of Irish coffee.
