Don your greenest clothes or shamrock-decorated fancy dress and head to Duke Street this St Patrick’s Day and you may just find a pot of gold there. The three-floor competitive socialising venue, PINS Social Club, has announced that it will be hosting multiple events packed full of live music, sport and entertainment to celebrate Ireland’s patron saint.
Running across three days (March 17-19), in partnership with Jameson Irish Whiskey, celebrations will kick off at PINS Social Club at midday on Thursday, with a daytime St Patrick’s Day party up on The Roof, Liverpool’s largest heated and covered rooftop bar. The Roof will also be specially decorated for the event, taking inspiration from Irish American themes and St Patrick’s will mark the rooftop bar’s first time being open this year and guests can expect a rustic Guinness Bar, a bespoke Jameson’s cocktail menu, and live bands laying throughout the day to keep the party going, finishing with PINS house DJs until late.
The weekend is set to get into full flow on March 18 and guests will able to enjoy discounted drinks during Happy Hour, which runs from 5pm – 7pm, followed by ‘Get Lucky’ – a special St Patrick’s Friday night social, in the main bar. PINS recommends an early arrival in order to bag a prime spot from 7.30pm for the Friday night social, which will feature live bands and vocalists, plus resident DJs.
The next morning, jaded heads can recuperate with a long, leisurely brunch in preparation for Super Saturday, a day of rugby, when Ireland will be taking on Scotland on the final day of the 2022 Six Nations Championships. Kicking off at 4.45pm, PINS will be showing all of the action on their big screens around the venue – watch live to see if Ireland can retain their title after beating Scotland last year.
Regardless of the score, be sure to stick around after the match for PINS Parade night from 7.30pm. Mixing DJs, live music, and percussion – the weekly Saturday nights have grown to be one of the biggest in the city and includes some of the most incredible dancers and performers, who take to the central runway in a breathtaking spectacle show, which often includes acrobatics, costume changes and special effects.
Speaking about the event weekend, PINS General Manager Jamie Finn said: “We’re really looking forward to St. Patrick’s this year – it’s got a long tradition in the city and the first time we’ll be celebrating at PINS, as lockdown thwarted our plans last year. It’s also going to mark the reopening of The Roof for 2022, seating up to four hundred guests, there’s nowhere better in the city when the weather is fine!”
All of the St Patrick’s events at PINS Social Club are free entry and if you’re out with the gang, booth and group packages are also available. Book your place at these events via the bar’s website here and expect plenty of craic.
