March is one of our busiest times of the year! And we’ve got lots to catch you up on after a long winter’s nap. So let’s look at our upcoming month!

THURSDAY MARCH 17 – ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

The Manchester Pub has a history as one of the city’s “go to” destinations on St. Patrick’s Day, going all the way back to our first St. Paddy’s in 2010. With our genuine admiration and love for the UK culture and the family of staff, friends and patrons, March 17th always feels like our “Super Bowl” each year, celebrating another great year at the Pub with all the people we love the most – YOU!

This year we have a special line-up planned, paying homage to perhaps the city’s most legendary St. Patrick’s Day venue, the late great Patrick O. Ryan’s Irish Pub. For over a decade, Patty O’s was the pre-eminent Irish pub in the city and it’s sad demise was mourned everywhere. But in it’s wake, it spawned a renaissance of the Pub culture in Windsor-Essex county and we’re proud to share a link in that chain – our founding General Manager Jamie Greer was a long time employee of Patrick O. Ryan’s.

This St. Patrick’s Day we’re blessed with three amazing acts, all of whom were regular house bands at Patrick O. Ryan’s. From 12noon until 4pm, we’ve got the kilted fun of the legendary Tartan Army, Windsor’s longest running active Celtic folk band (featuring our very own Kit McEvoy on guitar and vocals!). From 4-10pm, it’s Clusterfolk, the dynamic duo of Brian VanderPryt and Frank Edgley Jr. While Clusterfolk may not ring a bell for Paddy O regulars, Brian and Frank were no strangers to their stage. They were two thirds of the Celtic giants Celtic Cross! Finally, closing out the night is the incomparable Toast & Jam. One of the most beloved acts of Patrick O. Ryan’s stage, they will have you singing and dancing, from your seat to the aisles!

UK UNDERGROUND THURSDAYS

We’re a few months into this great new feature we’ve added, but now it’s time to tell the world! If you’ve ever been to a Pub in the UK, you’ll notice that live Pub singers aren’t the only music you’ll find there. It’s not uncommon for the Pubs to have “disco nights” (which is just British slang for DJ nights, not actually disco music, so don’t panic). These are fun nights where favourite pop songs are spun by local DJs for a fun dance party.

Well we’ve created our own twist on this UK Pub staple with UK UNDERGROUND THURSDAYS. We’ve plucked four veteran DJs from Windsor’s local DJ scene, who have a history of playing amazing UK-centric music at such legendary Windsor clubs as The Loop, The Avalon Front, Phog Lounge, Venue Music Hall and more! Four different DJs playing an eclectic mix of everything from the 60’s British Invasion to the modern indie pop of 2k16 UK, join us for a unique night of music in the downtown core. There’s never a cover and we’ve got $5 Pints, $4 Well Drinks and $5 Bombs all night long!
