Has the slow start to spring kept you cooped up in your apartment? Get out and about and celebrate with the Irish in NYC on St. Patrick's Day. Grab some green beer and a few shots of Jameson, followed by a plate of traditional Irish fare. We're sharing some of our top picks to party like you're in the Emerald Isle, because on this day, we're all Irish. And guaranteed, the celebration will be going on all day long.

Biddy's Pub, Yorkville
Owned by two Irishmen, Barry and JJ, this tiny pub is hidden off Second Avenue on East 91st Street. The popular neighborhood spot doesn't serve food, but you can order delivery from any of the nearby restaurants. Known for its regulars and friendly staff, Biddy's promises a memorable St. Patty's Day if you can get in the door. If JJ is working, tell him Tracy says "Sláinte!"

Finnegan's Wake, Upper East Side
This old-timey Irish spot has been a staple in the neighborhood for decades. It's no fuss, no muss, but you can't get much more Irish than this. Although this pub attracts an older crowd, surely the ages will vary on the feast of St. Patrick. Take in some of the memorabilia from the past, including a portrait of James Joyce, while you sip your beer in the taproom.

Landmark Tavern, Hell's Kitchen
Opened as an Irish saloon on the shores of the Hudson in 1868, this quintessential NYC tavern is one of the oldest continually operating establishments remaining in Manhattan. With a full menu including Irish dishes like Corned Beef and Cabbage and Bangers and Mash, as well as other bar favorites like burgers and wings, Landmark definitely keeps your food cravings in mind. The friendly service and old-world atmosphere, not to mention the wide selection of beer and single malt whiskeys, will make the trip to 11th Avenue worth your while.

St. James Gate, Upper West Side
Owned by Kevin, Paul, and Siobhán, all hailing from the Emerald Isle themselves, the menu at this Upper West Side staple offers plenty of delicious options. Their calamari is some of the best anywhere, and the fish and chips can't be beat.  Get there early for a seat to grab brunch or an early dinner, otherwise you'll be fresh out of Irish luck with only a few pints o' Guinness to wet your whistle.
The St. James Gate is at the corner of 81st and Amsterdam on the Upper West.
The Crooked Knife at 14th Street, West Village
This comfy bar is conveniently located a stone's throw from the 1-2-3 trains on 7th Avenue and the ACE on 8th Avenue, so you can stumble to the subway after you imbibe. Known for some of their froufrou cocktails, the brewsky options are plentiful as well. Try and grab the lounge seating in the front window if you'll be hanging out for several rounds.

McSorley's Old Ale House, East Village
The oldest pub in New York City, McSorley's is a must-visit for anyone in town. Established in 1854, it boasts the title "New York's oldest continually operating saloon," and does it with pride. You'll only find two types of alcoholic beverages here, McSorley's Light and McSorley's Dark, so drink the Jameson before you arrive.
