Siesta Key Village Pub Crawl

Do you get a little sick of one sight? Are you more interested in exploring and changing it up?

Head on over to Siesta Key for a big and constantly-changing event. The Siesta Key Village Pub Crawl is an essential event for anyone that loves to mix a little Irish whiskey with a little shopping. Numerous local bars, Irish or otherwise, join in the fun for an organized pub crawl. They all offer specials, such as the famous $5 Jameson’s, for St. Patrick’s Day.

Shamrock Pub St. Patrick’s Day Block Party

Pour the first pint at 9 a.m. sharp, and see where the day takes way. There is no secret that holds this wild local event together every year. On its 11th year, the St. Patrick’s Day Block Party at Shamrock Pub is a blast of real Irish music and real Irish cuisine. There’s no phoniness here.

To bring people together, Shamrock Pub hosts a limerick costume. The Shamrock pub is located at 2257 Ringling Blvd, Sarasota, FL 34237. The event runs the entire day.

Don’t forget to see the beach at some point for a chance to see the famous green flash.

Pub 32 Party

When Pub 32 was closed for a few years, the community collectively sighed. But the team opened back up for 2018’s St. Patrick’s Day, and they have been going on steady ever since. Irish musicians perform all day, while the small crew serves whiskey, beer, and fish fry.

Pub 32 is one of the most popular Irish bars in the area. You can see the enthusiasm for the place and its owners for St. Patrick’s Day. The bar is located at 8383 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.

The Party at The Beach Club

Specials begin at the Beach Club at 2 p.m. This night-club oriented event offers some sensational all-day drink specials, which are likely to include green tea shots, green draft beers, and Guinness.

Live music is expected to continue to at least 11 p.m. This event is special for its free tab announcements. About every two hours, the bar will announce who gets to pay nothing for the evening!

There are numerous Irish pubs and beachside bars available for you and your group. Be sure to explore around and see what Lido Key, Siesta Key, and Sarasota have to offer.
