It is that time of year again when the Guinness taps get a thorough workout. St Patricks day has los

t its original meaning and is now a day to celebrate and adore all things Irish. From just wearing a green clover to filling the local river with green paint. Anything and everything can happen on St Patricks day. But most importantly, it’s a time to celebrate with a few Irish beers.

There is a new place just outside of the CBD that heralds itself to all things Irish, The Last Jar.

Every year on March 17, the Irish and Irish-at-heart come together across the globe to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. What started as a religious holiday for the patron saint of Ireland has since become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with drinking, dancing and a whole lot of green.

So with this in mind, how about an Irish pub that has set out in pursuit of a real Irish St Patricks Day experience. No run-of-the-mill St Paddy’s Day clichés – theyare after a traditional Irish celebration; Guinness, Irish grub, live music and of course Guinness.

Screen Shot 2014-03-13 at 4.12.05 pmWhat better way to kick off the day (and line the stomach) than with a full Irish Breakfast. Irish-owned and operated Gastropub, The Last Jar offers a full traditional Irish breakfast created by exec chef, Tim Sweeney who trained at a number of Michelin star restaurants across the UK and Ireland. With all the food made in house – from the dark soda bread to the freshly churned butter, a plate of bacon, eggs, sausage and black & white pudding it will give you the energy to raise that glass of Guinness all day.

Stick around at The Last Jar for an evening of live music, featuring local Melbourne band Streams of Whiskey and Galway Gyp-Hop band The Latchikos taking centre stage from 6pm.
