Irish Pubs, Bars and Food in LA

On the one night you would expect to hear Irish music in Irish bars, many of the Southland's best Irish bands take off to play St. Patrick's Day gigs in other parts of the country leaving many of the LA Irish pubs that usually have Irish music with extra space to pack in more of the drinking public. However you can still find some venues with live music or other St. Paddy's day activities in the Guide to Irish Bars and Pubs in LA, Irish Bars in Long Beach and Top Irish Bars in Orange County
