Celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day Around Dalian
Picture of Celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day Around Dalian

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!

While lots of neighborhood watering holes will embrace Irish heritage in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, there are a few with real Irish roots.

Black Taxi, located just a half-mile from your Dalian on the Park apartment at 745 N. 25th St., incorporates Irish culture into its food menu, drink selections, décor and events. In every section of its menu, diners can find Irish-inspired dishes, such as the Irish chopped salad, Irish bruschetta, fish and chips, Irish stew and bangers and mash. Until 4 p.m. every day, Black Taxi serves a full Irish Breakfast, complete with “rashers” — an Irish-style bacon — sausage, baked beans, roasted tomato, fries and over-easy eggs. And to wash it all down, Black Taxi serves Guinness on tap!

Con Murphy’s Irish Pub, 1700 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy., a half-mile from your Dalian Park apartment, was opened by two Philly transplants from Ireland, who named the venue after their late friend, also an Irishman. On the food side, Con Murphy’s serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner — all Irish-inspired, of course. From Shepherd’s pie to meatloaf to bread pudding, Con Murphy’s specializes in homey, feel-good meals. Its two bars are equally laidback. As an added treat, Con Murphy’s offers live music — mostly from Irish bands and singers — Thursday-Saturday nights.

Tír na nÓg, located at 1600 Arch St., six blocks from your Dalian on the Park apartment, fuses Irish and New American items on its food and drink menus. From the Irish Breakfast to the Potato Roasted Leek Bisque to the Corn Beef Special, diners will be transported straight to Ireland without leaving Philly. The drink list also boasts Irish flavor, with Guinness joined by items like Magner’s Irish Cider and Smithwick’s. Happy hour (5-7 p.m. weekdays) draws big after-work crowds with food and drink specials!
