Neighbors might not be able to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a parade and block party on Greenville Avenue, but an all-day party at a new Irish pub opening in the neighborhood might be the next best thing.

Jack & Ginger’s opens at 5 p.m. Wednesday at 2107 N. Henderson Ave. The pub, located below 77 Degrees, is complete with 5,000 square feet of space, an open-air patio and a building made of exposed brick and dark wood. The restaurant also boasts more than 20 large-screen TVs, making it the perfect spot to catch a game.

The eatery offers an expansive drink list that is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Sample more than 60 draught beers, tapped wines or Irish-inspired cocktails Saturday at a St. Patrick’s Day party with live bands and swag giveaways.

Try the Irish Rose with Slane Irish Whiskey, crème de cassis and lemon juice and pair it with bangers and mash or shepherd’s pie.

Jack & Ginger’s also offers a weekday happy hour from 3 to 7 p.m. with $7 flights, $5 house wines and $5 appetizers, such as Irish chips and dip or grilled cheese hushpuppies.
