Spring is coming, but something else that's green is on our minds. St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! To help you celebrate, we've rounded up the best pubs to visit in Winnipeg.

Shannon's Irish Pub and Eatery

If you're looking for the classic Irish pub experience this St. Patrick's Day, you'll want to pull up a chair at Shannon's Irish Pub and Eatery. On St. Patrick's Day and beyond, it's a great place to enjoy home style food, 21 beers on tap, V.Q.A wines, local craft beers, fine scotch and Irish whiskey. This pub also has its fair share of live entertainment with performances 7 days a week. Be brave and join in for karaoke on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and witness the bravery of others on open mic Wednesdays. Enjoy local musicians on Fridays and some Saturdays. For a true Irish feeling, visit on a Saturday afternoon to enjoy their Celtic jam.

Fionn MacCool's Grant Park

Fionn MacCool's is a big chain of pubs, but each location has its own character and charm. In Winnipeg, Fionn MacCool's Grant Park has a loyal following for good reason. You can count on a great, expansive food and drink menu, friendly service and a fun atmosphere. They even have a vegan menu that goes way beyond salad and french fries with dishes like fried pickles and Phish Tacos! Last St. Patrick's Day, they offered an amazing deal of $5 shots of Jameson Irish Whiskey to patrons.

The Toad in the Hole

With a daily happy hour from 3 to 6 pm (full of deals on draft, bottled beer, and rail liquors), lots of live music on weekdays and weekends, great pub food (with a large menu that captures everything from classic curries to cauliflower wings), and an enormous whiskey collection (including whiskeys from across the globe and 11 from Ireland), it's no surprise that The Toad in the Hole is a well-loved Winnipeg pub. It's a great option for St. Patrick's Day, too.

Leopold's Tavern

If poutine, pints and polaroids dangling off the wall sounds like your vibe, we have the perfect pub for you. With 6 locations in Winnipeg, and more across Canada, Leopold's Tavern is cornering the market on friendly neighbourhood pubs and is a great place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Their menu is huge (from buckets of bacon to countless poutines and burgers) and even includes a bunch of allergen-friendly and plant based options. They even have a fine selection of mocktails for non-drinkers!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We hope this post inspires you to explore some of the best pubs Winnipeg has to offer this spring.
