L.A.'s Irish culture isn't typically the first to come to mind when considering the city's multicultural makeup. Korean? Of course. Mexican? Most definitely. But Irish? We have our old standby pubs—Tom Bergin's, of course—and a thriving beer and brewery scene that are the perfect complement to St. Patrick's Day events in Los Angeles, including festivals, Celtic music performances and parades.

St. Patrick's Day events for 2017

Hermosa Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade

It's no emerald seaside, but Hermosa Beach injects a bit of Irish spirit into the coastal city for the annual St. Patrick's Day parade. Bagpipers, marching bands, cars decked out in green and festive pups from the Irish Setters Club of Southern California all make their way across the seven-block route. The parade kicks off near City Hall on Valley Drive, heads west on Pier Avenue and ends at the corner of Hermosa Avenue and 10th Street.

Rock and Reilly’s Annual St. Paddy’s Day Block Party

Stock your St. Patrick's Day festivities with an afternoon equal parts pretty faces and green beer at Rock and Reilly's annual bash, held in the lot behind the Sunset Strip pub. The fest promises more booze and less morals with each installment thanks to eight full bars and more than 100 kegs of Bud Light and Guinness—sorry brew snobs, but let's be real, you're not coming here for the Celtic culture. Stay full with the bar's own delicious drinking fuel—corned beef sliders and Irish nachos—or from food trucks and a pizza, sandwich and salad station. This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Merging Vets and Players charity.

St. Patrick's Day party at Tom Bergin's

Recommended

There are plenty of St. Patrick's Day celebrations going on around town, but ones that last from 6am until 2am the next morning are hard to come by. Enter Tom Bergin's: an Irish pub mainstay and the best place to grab an Irish coffee in LA. Celebrations on the 17th will start at 6am, when morning revelers can indulge in a traditional Irish Breakfast before heading to work. The party gets a little more rowdy at 11am, with a parking lot soirée that includes a Guinness truck, beer pong tables, a DJ, picnic table seating and all the beer you can handle. After midnight, drinkers will be ushered into the bar where they can carry out the remainder of their night with Old Fashioneds, Irish Car Bombs, Whiskles and more Irish coffee.
