There’s a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow, and this year you should follow the rainbow that leads to Dunwoody! Not quite sure what to do for St. Patrick's Day? Get lucky by stopping in one (or all) of these places for a jolly good time on March 17.

1. Dunwoody Tavern

St. Patrick’s Day would not be complete without visiting a pub. Lucky for you, Dunwoody has several from which to choose.

Ye Olde Dunwoody Tavern holds the title of being the city’s very first pub and one of its oldest restaurants. With plush chairs and sofas, you’re sure to feel right at home – with a large group of your closest friends, of course! It tends to be the premier spot to play pool, shoot darts, or have a pint, so you should plan to arrive early if your heart is set on this destination for St. Patrick’s Day.

2. The Duke

For a more upscale venue with the laid back energy that every pub encompasses, venture to The Duke Pub. The Duke is a reflection of a London City Pub, elegant, rich in paneling and color but yet comfy and relaxed. Pair this with great beer and food, this St. Patrick's day is sure to be your luckiest yet.

3. King George Tavern

Last but certainly not least, there’s the cozy, yet lively King George Tavern. Its trademark is the bright red original telephone box that stands alongside its exterior. The perfect background for that St. Patrick’s Day selfie!

4. Porter BBQ and Brewery

BONUS: While it's not a pub, we also highly recommend stopping by Porter BBQ & Brewery some time throughout your St. Patrick's Day parade. It's Dunwoody's 1st brewery and it features 6 brite serving tanks, 50 types of Bourbon, 1240 pints per brew, and 1 Southern Pride BBQ smoker. We think those stats are invitation enough.

5. Iron Hill Brewery

EXTRA BONUS: We are spotlighting another joint that is not a traditional pub environment but is still centered around beer, so it counts. Iron Hill Brewery is a perfect setting for your St. Patrick's Day beer tour! With a passionate team that is all about producing distinctive, full-flavored handcrafted beers and fresh-from-scratch New American cuisine, you can go wrong with a pint (or two, or three) at Iron Hill.
