Baltimore Nightlife

Best Irish Bar

J. Patrick’s

1371 Andre St., (410) 244-8613,

Time and again we wonder if maybe we should choose some other Irish bar for Best of. But despite our urge to give everyone a fair shake, there’s just no competition in this category. Sure, there are other bars that pour a healthy shot of Jameson and make a decent Irish coffee. A few may even equal J. Patrick’s in its camaraderie, that feeling when you walk in the door that you’ve come home (a home with a remarkably well-stocked liquor cabinet). But when the traditional Irish music starts up at J. Patrick’s—every day of the week except Wednesdays—and the crowd sings along and a couple of people drunkenly dance and, on occasion, over there in the corner is Martin O’Malley throwing back a Guinness, there’s no place more Irish in Baltimore.
