For those longing for the good 'ol days knocking down pints of Guinness in the emerald country, Katie Bloom's Irish Pub & Restaurant in Old Town Campbell offers a local alternative. Between noshing on standard pub grub or taking in helpings of sausage in the restaurant's full-on traditional Irish breakfast, the bar features a choice selection of brews to imbibe as you shoot the breeze with the regulars. Not only is this the place to be come St. Patrick's Day, but karaoke Sundays, quiz night Wednesdays and weekend DJs who transform the joint into a bona fide dance club provide ample entertainment for crowds, young and old, down for a rollicking loud time. Just don't drink too much or you'll start seeing leprechauns.
Another of Silicon Valley’s proud roster of Irish pubs, good brews at all hours and music later in the evening make this more than just a once-a-year St. Patrick’s Day must.

2008 BEST OF SILICON VALLEY Reader Survey Winner - First Place
Katie Bloom’s has changed up its tempo. Once a mellow hangout for true-blue pub lovers, this “Best Pub” winner now swaps out the inside tables for a dance floor and brings in a DJ on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Don’t worry, though; Katie’s still offers pub favorites like Wednesday quiz nights and Sunday karaoke, and the full bar has enough alcohol that even on club nights, nondancing patrons can get properly sloshed to drown out the high-pitched chatter of giddy, way-too-trendy club kids. -- Metro, Silicon Valley's Weekly Newspaper, September 24, 2008
