National Irish Coffee Day 2024 celebrates the beloved warming concoction of coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar, and cream, one of the Irish Drinks that we can’t get enough of. This annual holiday takes place on January 25 and invites enthusiasts to indulge in the classic alcoholic beverage that dates back to 1940s Ireland. Across cafes and bars, from cozy local joints to renowned establishments like The Buena Vista in San Francisco, the day can be celebrated by simply heading to a bar and ordering an Irish Coffee. It’s a day to savor the perfect blend of coffee and whiskey.

As National Irish Coffee Day approaches there’s no better place to celebrate than at The Buena Vista in San Francisco, the legendary birthplace of Irish Coffee in the United States.

Since 1952, this iconic café has been pouring what many argue to be the quintessential Irish Coffee. The drink is a perfect amalgamation of hot coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar, and a smooth layer of cream. The whole experience of watching the bartenders at The Buena Vista pour massive amounts of Irish Coffees and then tasting the delicious cream followed by hot, boozy coffee is definitely worth the trip. Get in the Irish Spirit before St. Patrick’s Day!
