Irish pubs are lively gathering spots, unlike stark Swedish pubs, where every table is occupied by Grim Reapers playing chess. Get a taste of the old country with this Groupon.

- $30 for admission for two to the St. Patrick's Day party with drinks (up to a $60 value)

On Saturday, March 16, patrons celebrate St. Patrick's Day in an atmosphere that echoes the rock pubs of the Emerald Isle. The 2nd annual block party, last year's fete boasted more than 4,000 attendants, takes up the entire block behind the iconic rock pub. Each person receives admission (a $20 value/person) and a drink ticket, which can be traded for either a mixed drink (up to a $10 value) or a beer (up to a $7 value). Part of the proceeds go to benefit the Pencils of Promise charity.
Rock & Reilly's
One night at a bar in Devlin, Ireland, a fight broke out, a baby was born, and that same child immediately entered into the scuffle. As the story goes, in the years that followed, this incredible boy would lose his left eye and travel to America, where he found a nation in the throes of Prohibition. So the young man took his family's whiskey recipe and started delivering the libation to people's front doors, becoming the world's most renowned bootlegger. He also found some time to invent rock 'n' roll.
These are just a few of the incredible feats attributed to Reilly, the namesake folk hero of Rock & Reilly's. While the young man's legend might be questionable, the rock pub that's plastered with his eye-patched visage has earned a very real reputation for its whiskeys and brews. Surrounded by exposed-brick walls, bartenders pour Guinness and concoct dozens of mixed drinks with names like Dead Beat Dad and Spicy Slapper—a vodka drink with watermelon, jalapeño, lime, and cranberry. The libations pair well with a lineup of pub food, including five kinds of grilled cheese.
Since the pub opened in 2011, its selection of drinks and grub have attracted the attention of numerous news outlets and celebrities; starlets including Nicole Richie and Zooey Deschanel have attended parties there.
