If you’re not familiar (you might be the only one), Erin Express is a St. Pattys day bar crawl that’s been going strong for 30+ years. The owners of Cavanaugh’s and Smokey Joes decided that it would be a good idea to order up 10+ buses and have them rotate between 10+ Philadelphia bars on 2 consecutive weekends surrounding St. Paddys day weekend. The idea caught on and the Erin Express has been a raging success ever since.
Each year the buses run for the 2 consecutive Saturdays before St Patricks Day. Buses normally run from 11am – 6pm but most of the bars are open earlier than that!
The buses are FREE, but I would bring cash so you easily pop into the bar, grab a drink or two and be onto the next! Some of the bars actually have an outdoor area that is utilized as expanded space to partay. Check out the map on our homepage for bars with outdoor space.
The buses will stop at each bar on the list every 15 minutes or so depending on traffic. All you need to do to join in is go to a participating bar, have a drink and jump on the bus when it pulls up outside.
