St. Patrick’s Day is upon us, which means it’s time to sport your greenest outfit, blast some Irish tunes and drink like no one’s watching. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing coronavirus prevention and containment measures, there are notably less events happening this year compared to 2019. That said, there are still a few celebrations happening around town for you to partake in… Below, we round up the top St. Patrick’s Day events happening in Guangzhou on March 17.
Stuff your face this St. Pat’s Day with 13Fact’s deli reuben (RMB88), which is composed of house-made corned beef brisket and sauerkraut with Swiss cheese on sourdough rye bread.

Drink deals will also be on offer, including six shots of Jameson for RMB150, Irish ‘depth charges’ for RMB55 and green cocktails for RMB50.
