Time Out says

If you want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with hundreds of people at the most happening block party (that you might not remember), head to the Irish Bank. This otherwise quiet Irish pub, located in an alley in downtown San Francisco, goes off on March 17 when they throw their annual block party. The event changes throughout the day: It starts with a live paddy orchestra show and ends with a loud Vegas-style DJ. The indoor-outdoor space has a whitewashed cottage appearance with a rare collection of antiques, church pews and farm implements that create a warm and eye-catching atmosphere. The bar space inside is on the smaller size, but the Irish Bank is all about securing a prime spot on the plastic lawn table-lined patio. The food menu—filled with fries, wings, nachos, and messy sandwiches—is ideal for soaking up one too many pints.
