After the year we’ve all had, we need St. Patrick’s Day more than ever, and Downtown Crawlers is here to deliver cheer with not one but three themed bar crawls in March! 

Downtown Crawlers’ 4th Annual St Paddy's Shenanigans Bar Crawl starts Saturday, March 13 at 3 p.m. and spans over 15 bars in Downtown and South Tampa. Then, on Wednesday, March 17, at 3 p.m., they will have their St Patrick's Day Bar Crawl focused in the downtown area. Meanwhile, in St. Pete, they will be having a St. Patrick's Day Bar Crawl of their own starting at 5 p.m.

There will be no busses on these bar crawls, so the route is entirely up to you and your crew; you can visit as many bars as you like for as long as you like! Fortunately, devising your game plan is easy as there are many ways to get around the city: bike/scooter, trolley, walk, and rideshare apps. 

Whichever bar crawl you go on, you can expect:

  • Five free welcome drinks at five bars of your choice
  • Exclusive food and drink specials at every bar
  • Bar games to win drink vouchers and more
  • Coast Bike and Hopr $10 off promo code

There will also be iced Green tea shots from Jameson (plus free swag), CBD-infused drinks courtesy of Team Proleve (Tampa bar crawls only), Ghost Tequila tastings and shots, and Jel-shots provided by the Original Jel-Shot Co. It’s all enough to make a leprechaun’s head spin! 

Plan your route, plan on having a good time, and plan on wearing green- you know what happens to people on St. Patrick’s Day who don’t wear green! Leave the rest up to Downtown Crawlers, who have been hosting experimental events like these for five years. 

Downtown Crawlers and participating bars want you to be healthy and have a safe St. Patrick’s Day as well, which is why there will be no busses and each bar has their own COVID-19 precautions and rules. One precaution some bars have includes a capacity limit, so you may be asked to come back at a later time if a bar is too crowded. 

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day the best way and buy tickets now for this Saturday, next Wednesday, or both!
