In Miami, you can pretty much celebrate any and every holiday. It’s truly a melting pot of identity, of heritage and of culture. And while it may not be the first holiday to come to mind when you’re thinking of partying in the Sunshine State, it’s true that St. Patty’s Day is no exception. Whether it’s on the beach, on a yacht or at the bar, there are lots of ways to partake in the luck of the Irish right here in South Florida. Here are a few to get you started: Fire and Ice Cocktail Class Not only is Fire and Ice a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s also an opportunity to learn and educate yourself on the ways of delicious drinks. Drinkhouse Fire & Ice Bar, located off Collins Avenue, is holding a class where you can mix and master your very own signature cocktail. There will be professional bartenders and mixologists on site giving you step by step direction, a wide assortment of herbs, liquors and fruit available for your liking, as well as their grand 100,000-pound ice bar to set the tone. And don’t worry about being too cold while inside – the bar even offers coats and gloves so you stay warm all night. With this event, you’ll go home with a buzz that you can re-create over and over. Tickets are $45. St. Pat’s Wynwood Block Party By now, you’re probably aware that Wynwood has a certain vibe…a certain aesthetic. It’s trendy and cool, yet also welcoming and genuine. It’s artsy. It’s young. It’s refreshing. And now, for St. Patty’s, it’s also green. Come out to the third annual St. Pat’s Block Party (completely free!) and drink green beer, listen to the latest music from a live DJ, converse about art and entertainment, and eat well from the food trucks on site. If you want, you can also make something cool because there will be an arts and crafts area for anyone who gets that creative itch. Oh, Wynwood. Go to Fado Irish Pub Part of Fado’s mission is to “tell the story of Ireland’s rich and ever-evolving pub culture,” and every St. Patrick’s Day, that is exactly what they do. This year, the renowned Irish bar is holding an all-day-long block party to celebrate. There will be good food, good music and really, really good Irish beer and whiskey. But don’t simply take it from us. Get a ticket early, and experience the excitement yourself! This year’s party is headlined “Be The Legend,” so you already know it’s going to be a good time. Fado’s sits in the heart of Mary Brickell village, near our downtown Miami hotel. You can book an affordable night’s stay with us, and think not about driving home after drinking. We want you enjoy the holiday, but more importantly, be safe while doing it. Book today, and focus instead on all the fun you’re sure to have. Happy St. Patty’s Day, Miami!
