Patrick’s Irish Pub is a large sports bar in Parque Lleres in El Poblado that enables customers to enjoy an American sports bar experience. This is the largest sports bar in Medellín I am aware of with two floors. And it is very popular with expats and tourists visiting the city.
Every Sunday during the football season in the U.S. they tend to have every NFL game playing on the televisions. And you’ll sometimes find some customers wearing their favorite team’s jersey.
I have even seen preseason games there. You can also see college football, which is more difficult to find in other sports bars in Medellín. You can find just about every sport here from MLB to UFC to NBA.
Also, Patrick’s normally has a Thanksgiving meal each year. For Thanksgiving in 2020, Patrick’s will have home-style turkey, mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, mixed veggies, homemade stuffing, cranberry fruit sauce, fresh roll with butter, and pumpkin or apple pie with whip cream for 80,000 per person. This is on Thursday, November 26 from 1:00 pm to midnight.
We included Patrick’s Irish Pub in our list of six popular sports bars in Medellín.
My Experiences at This Irish Pub
I have been to Patrick’s Irish Pub many times over the past several years and they have some good food in my experience. In addition, they have a friendly staff that also tends to remember your face and name.
Also, they also tend to have daily specials from the extensive menu, that are sometimes marketed on their Facebook page.
In my opinion, this sports bar excels with their boneless chicken wings and some good hamburgers. Also, they have good thin-crust pizzas and their Irish meatloaf is very good. On the other hand, a few food items on the menu such as bangers & mash were just okay to me.
