Each year leading up to March 17, a sea of green slowly ebbs its way through the Mile High City — much like other cities in the United States. And although the Feast of Saint Patrick was originally a cultural and religious remembrance of the patron saint of Ireland, the Catholic holiday has turned into quite the celebration for all. So, it's no surprise that there will be cold pints of green beer, corned beef and cabbage, shots of whiskey and Irish step dancers taking over Denver.

Whether you're full blown Irish or just sort of Ir-ish, the Mile High is at no loss for catering to all St. Patrick's Day needs.

Note: The spots listed here are arranged in north to south order.
