With St. Patrick’s Day coming up this March 17, it’s time to start thinking about that epic St. Paddy’s bash you’ve been wanting to throw. But where do you start? Don’t get overwhelmed- check out our tips that prove that it really is easy being green!
Whether you’re aiming for a traditional Irish meal like corned beef and cabbage, or your theme is simply green, the in-house catering team at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC can help plan and execute the perfect St. Patrick’s Day menu!
Not sure what to choose for food? Green foods like salads, foods with chimichurri or pesto sauce, or even a green dessert bar with verdant macarons, cookies, cakes, petit fours, candy and more can all keep the green theme going.
You can even create your own green signature cocktail, including a boozy shamrock milkshake, or serve Irish whiskey, green beer, or Bailey’s-based dessert drinks!
You can even “go green” with environmentally friendly food and decorations, and make your special event extra special!
Lighting effects are kind of a big deal around here, with our in-house AV team, AV Workshop. AV Workshop knows the layout of our raw space and can create a green dream room with colored filters to make your St. Patrick’s Day party pop!
Whether it’s cocktail attire, casual, or formal, don’t forget to remind your guests to wear green, so they don’t get pinched all night!
A DJ is fun for dancing the night away, but how about featuring a performance of traditional Irish music or dance during the evening? You could even hire a band from Ireland that plays modern music, or have your DJ spin only Irish artists throughout the night.
Host a few games with a St. Patrick’s Day theme, like St. Paddy’s Bingo, Family Feud, or a St. Patrick’s Day trivia game. You can even find your ‘leprechaun name’, or a scavenger hunt. Best of all, some of these activities are great for kids, too, if you choose to invite children to your soiree!
We wish you the best of luck with your party planning endeavors here at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, and are here to help you if you have any questions or would like to know more about hosting your celebration here.
