St. Patty’s Day at The Roosevelt

Grab your clovers and pots of gold – the NYC St. Patty’s Day festivities are finally here! The New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is one of the best (and most fun) parades in the world. This Saturday, March 16th, the parade will start right outside the doors of The Roosevelt Hotel at 45th Street.  It begins at 11:00 am and marches up Fifth Avenue, past St. Patrick’s Cathedral and ends near the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 86th Street about 4:30pm.  Awash in the sea of green, parade goers will experience plenty of bagpipes, performances and floats.

There are tons of great Irish pubs and restaurants in Midtown, but there is no better place to begin parade festivities than at Vander Bar.  Located at the start of the parade route, Vander Bar will open its doors at 10am for those parade goers who want to get an early start on the festivities.  Corned Beef and Cabbage will definitely be on the menu, along with great drink specials.  Just as you’d expect, Vander Bar has developed several delicious themed specialty libations, including:

Blarney Stone

Bushmills Irish Whiskey, Sweet Vermouth, Grand Marnier, Bitters

Wild Irish Rose

Jameson 1780 Irish Whiskey, Peach liqueur, Orange Juice, sweet & sour, over ice with a cherry & orange slice

Scarlet O’Hara

Grey Goose Vodka, Cedila Acai Liqueur and Pineapple

Another must-see at the hotel is the annual bag piper performance in the hotel lobby at 11:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. This annual tradition is always a treat for guests and locals alike.  Grab a seat at the lobby bar, the Madison Club Lounge, for a Guinness and a front row seat to the show!
