Description: The pub is angular lapiedra of British culture. There will always be a pub on every main street of cities in the UK. Much more than just a place to order a drink and eat, the Pub is a community center, where you will always have a friend, the bartender who knows your name and what is your favorite drink. This is what we create here in Medellliin, in the heart of the Zona Rosa, where we seek to carry out the Irish culture and history of the clans. Welcome to Patrick's Irish Pub

“Great Bar, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I've been to this pub several times and it's always a good experience. They have 14 TV's with sports, they often can put on any game you request, and on Sundays during the fall they show lots of NFL games.
That's hard, if not impossible, to find anywhere else in Medellin.
Friendly staff, reasonably priced drinks, a great selection of beer and hard liquor, and music that is not too loud (again, something that's hard to find in Medellin where everyone seems to think louder is better) all combine to make this a very enjoyable place.
It's large and spacious, with a beautifully done bar and interior. As with many bars in Medellin, weeknights can be a little slow but weekends have a great crowd with a good mix of locals and expats.

“Great pub, great location”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

I had an awesome time with my husband and our tour group on the patio. They serve draft beer by the jar and carry a selection of cigars. The servers were polite and attentive. They had futball and American football on TV. Great spot to hang out.

“Great times, great atmosphere and great beer”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I’ve been going to Patrick’s for years – even when it was called El Alamo. El Alamo was cheap, they gave drinks away (rum and cokes) to all the ladies and their beer prices were unbelievably inexpensive. Eventually this business failed and the owner took over the building and rebranded it as Patrick’s.

We've been there 5 times since it’s been Patrick’s. He made significant changes to the building and the menu. Previously under “El Alamo” the food was below average however Patrick has changed the menu to more of an Irish theme and the quality is very good indeed. My favorite are the fried mushrooms which for some reason are unusual to find in Colombia. The mushrooms were crispy and cooked to perfection and the batter was crispy and tasty.

Of course draft beer we love – years ago it was hard to find draft beer in Colombia. Then we found Pilsen in draft in Medellin when they had a bar across from what is now Patrick’s. They also sold the beer very cheap and were in business for only maybe 2 years. Then 3 Cordilleras came along initially with 3 drafts. Then Club started being available in kegs and then Apostol had 3. Most recently Tres Marias is available in draft here in Colombia.
Patrick’s has a great selection of draft beer.

He has a large number of HD TVs on the wall and Patrick’s definitely the place to watch sports in HD from the world cup to MLB, NBA or the NFL games. He gets the games with commercials which believe it or not, I miss living in Colombia (on the Colombian cable/satellite the American commercials are stripped).

So if you want great food, great beer and great times check out Patrick’s. And yes, they know English as well..
