Buffalo knows how to drink.

The Irish know how to drink.

Naturally, there are a lot of Irish people in Buffalo, which makes it one of the best cities for a St. Patrick's Day party. But, if you're from Buffalo, you know that people from Western New York do not wait for St. Patrick's Day to get their Irish drinking on.

There are tons of Irish watering holes within Buffalo especially, South Buffalo where it was known there was a dominance of Irish-American culture. The top five Irish Bars were picked by ArtVoice for 2015, let's take a look who topped the list this year.
