Casey's Irish Pub hosting St. Patrick's Day celebrations
Looking innocent enough, the storefront of Casey's Irish Pub greets you with the usual green pub awning, inviting guests to the ales, ciders and shepherds pies that exist inside. The downstairs entrance takes you out of Downtown Los Angeles and into a magical world of strong Irish history.
The pub is large, with several rooms and the brick, outdoor patio. On the weekends, live bands play, furthering your immersion into Irish culture. Scents of delicious pies and pub fries invade your senses, even after the kitchen has closed.
Celbrities also frequent the establishment, and it has been featured in television shows, such as “Mad Men,” “CSI” and “X-Files,” and movies, such as “Charlie Wilson's War,” “Good Night and Good Luck” and even “Mr. Deeds.”
Upon walking in, you aren’t hit with an ‘uptown’ vibe at all. The place feels more dive bar than upscale, and on a weeknight, a relaxing place to get a drink and catch up with friends. On the weekends, the shenanigans begin with live music.
