The distinctive cultures that call Miami home may have their differences, but they are united by one major factor -- they all love to party. Saint Patricks Day is here to spread the boozy luck of the Irish across the Magic City. Irish pubs and bars are just about everywhere. Coconut Grove boasts Flanigans (2721 Bird Ave., 305-446-1114), and South Miami has Duffys Tavern (2108 Red Rd., 305-264-6580). SoBe residents can stumble to The Playwright Irish Pub & Restaurant (1265 Washington Ave., 305-534-0667), and downtown drinkers can enjoy Churchills (5501 NE Second Ave., 305-757-1807), a British pub for those who imbibe like Irishmen. Folks who want to get truly shamrocked should consider the following options: At the Titanic Restaurant and Brewery (5813 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Coral Gables; 305-667-2537, www.titanicbrewery.com), you can feast on corned beef and cabbage and sip Dublin Over Irish Red Ale, a beer brewed specially for the occasion. And at JohnMartins Restaurant and Irish Pub (235 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables; 305-445-3777, www.johnmartins.com), the celebration will spill out of the bar and onto Salzedo Street and Aragon Avenue for a block party featuring live music, traditional fare, and two new flavors of Baileys Irish cream.
