Urban Fantasy Fan’s Guide to St. Patrick’s Day


The Professor Woos the Witch by Kristen Painter // VBC ReviewDo you ever wonder how your favorite supernaturals would celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Or think you’d like to jump into their world to join in the celebration?

Us, too. We’d much rather hit up a vampire-filled bar than chug green beer with humans.

Here are five of our favorite fictional bars to help you make the perfect party (reading) plans.

1. Howler’s from the Nocturne Falls series by Kristen Painter

Howler’s is just your regular neighborhood bar except that it’s owned by a werewolf. But in Nocturne Falls, the town where every day is Halloween, all the other holidays get a little bit spookified and it’s so much fun.

2. Temple Bar from the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill*

Chicago goes big on St. Patrick’s Day with a parade and the river dyed green. Hanging out with the Cadogan House vampires on their home turf would make it even bigger. I’ll bet Lindsey has something amazing planned!

3. The Nightshade Lounge from Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Kreuger

This bar is also in Chicago so you won’t miss the festivities, but the bartenders at the Nightshade Lounge make magical cocktails that might give you superpowers, though only for the night. You might want to bring your favorite vampire Sentinel along to help battle all the demons in the neighborhood.

4. Fangtasia from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris

Of course we want to visit the vampire bar where Eric Northman sits on a throne like a king surveying his people? I wonder if they serve green blood alongside the green beer on St. Patrick’s Day.

5. Chester’s from The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning

This one’s kind of a no brainer because Dublin. But add in the exceptional people watching (or freaky Fae watching) and the chance to see Ryodan and there’s definitely no place I’d rather spend St. Patrick’s Day.

*Note: Not to be confused with the original Temple Bar in Dublin, which is also in The Fever series!
