Saint Patrick’s Day is (in)famous in NYC for it’s giant bagpipes
parade and packed pubs – luckily, things are a little quieter in our
neighborhood on March 17th and for most of the festivities, you have
to hop on a train for a short trip to midtown.
However, if you are looking for a little Saint Paddy’s Day craic (Irish word for fun), then step dance on down to this local pub not too far from your apartment. It has a warm atmosphere certain to remind you of the Emerald Isle.
Granny Annie’s Bar and Kitchen – Located just down Main Street on Roosevelt Island, this local Irish pub is the perfect blend of cozy Grandma decor and modern sports bar. With a full menu of typical pub food, Granny Annie’s also has an authentic side with a smaller menu of authentic Irish dishes you’re likely to find on the Emerald Isle more often than Roosevelt Isle. Check out their shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, or go for brunch for their Irish breakfast! This authentic Irish restaurant on Roosevelt Island is the perfect place to celebrate Saint Paddy’s Day close to your Octagon apartment.
