Celebrate St. Patrick's Day at these Philadelphia area bars and restaurants with limited-edition beer, food specials, and extended happy hours.

St. Patrick's Day is almost here, and the holiday is shaping up to be a bit more traditional than the last two years have been.

COVID-19 shut down much of the festivities during 2020 and 2021, but Philadelphia and its suburbs have lifted most of the restrictions that were put into place during the public health crisis – just in time for the celebrations.
