Shamrocks, shenanigans and showers of Guinness.

Kiss us we’re Irish. On the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th March we’re hosting a St. Patrick’s Day weekender like no other and we want you, yes you, to come and help us drink the bar dry. We will be bringing a little bit of Dublin to The Baltic Triangle where we will once again transform Baltic Market into something special. The event is spread over four days days to be sure, to be sure that as many of you leave with the luck of the Irish.

My goodness, my Guinness – there’s enough for everyone. We are delighted to announce Guinness are taking over the bar and they’re bringing buckets of the black stuff as well as Hop House 13 Lager to keep us merry all day. Much more than that, Jamesons will be hosting a pop-up Irish whiskey bar and we will be sourcing some Irish gins to fill you all up with some true Irish spirit. It wouldn’t be a party without food and at Baltic Market we’re blessed with some of the best food in the city. From wood fired pizzas to halloumi fries – there’s something for everyone and it’ll come in handy helping us drink all that Guinness.

This weekender wouldn’t be a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day without some music to jig to so be prepared for lots of local live bands playing traditional Irish songs to get you all on your feet. Jonny Bongo will be doing a special DJ set, there’ll be Irish dancing, Ukebox and more. We might even play a bit of B*Witched if you’re lucky. Please don’t forget that we at Independent Liverpool encourage a balanced diet, which in case you didn’t know, is a Guinness in each hand. Will we see you there? Argh, go on go on.

Does the bar and food traders take card?

They sure do! The nearest cash point is a bit of a walk so fear not, everyone takes card.

Are you showing the England vs Ireland rugby match?

We sure are! We will have it on the big screen in one side of the room where people can watch and there’ll be another side of the room for people who don’t want to watch.

Will there be food?

Of course there will. From wood-fired pizzas to halloumi fries and just about everything in between, expect Liverpool’s best street food to sling out some tasty food as well as some special themed food just for that weekend.

Is there parking nearby?

There is onsite parking but we please encourage anyone who plans on coming down to find alternative means if they plan on drinking.


The demand for the event has been crazy so we’d advise to come down as early as you can to ensure you get in and get a good seat.


We will then work on a 1 in 1 out basis. We can imagine people to come and leave at various times throughout the day so we’re hopeful there won’t be much of a wait.


Once you have left you unfortunately won’t be able to come back. This is just so it allows us to control how many people are in at once and keep you all safe. 


Definitely. We’ve got local bands, DJs and more on all weekend. 

Can I get a refund if my hangover is really bad?

Nice try.
