St. Patrick’s Day: The Trinity of Secret Hot Spots

While the Irish pubs in the “emerald city” are all decked out in kilts and clovers, we discovered a few non-traditional places to celebrate without the step-dancing lines, bagpipes and wonderful parade of pandemonium. Following are our top three picks to truly enjoy the wearing of the green.

#3: Treadwell Park — on the upper East Side is offering a holiday special with a selection of Irish beers including Seamus Irish Red Ale, Schlafly Irish-Style Extra Stout, Irish Bog Ale, Irish Setter Red and Wrassler’s XXXX Stout. For those with a sweet tooth try “The Irishman” beer float debuting for St. Pats and featuring Salted Caramel ice cream and Irish Red Ale with chocolate flakes and a whiskey/toffee sauce. Treadwell’s is also offering a holiday menu that includes a Smoked Brisket Rueben, Merchant’s Signature Burger or the Smoked Crispy Wings.

They also have specials on select whiskeys.

#2: Is your name Joshua? If you can prove it, The Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square is celebrating the day in the spirit of U2’s most famous album, The Joshua Tree — it’s the 30th anniversary of the album for these Irish rockers. (Their Yankee Stadium cafe will honer it on Saturday, March 18th as well). Celebrate like Bono and a rock star with a free dessert from the HRC chef. Just stop by one of the New York cafes with valid photo ID to show Joshua is your first, middle or last name and dessert is on the house. We can only suggest that if you are female and not named “Jashua” to borrow your siblings or friend’s ID. Wear green, head bang and indulge.

#1: Quietly tucked away on 45th Street in between 5th and 6th Avenues is the Club Quarters Hotel Midtown. This wee little gem is home to an airy lounge that feels like the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. While there is a membership program for guests, it’s also open to the public with a handsome bar and lounge area surrounded by marble pillars and turn-of-the-century architecture. The parade lines up right outside of their doors. To celebrate this day, you can inconspicuously pop in for a brew, Bloody Mary or their signature Irish Coffee to beat the chill before the parade passes by.
