Welcome to Paddy’s Sports Bar in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho! We are the Carper Family, and as of October 2009 we are the proud owners of Paddy’s! We hope to continue the long tradition of a family owned and operated business started in the 1970s. Chris Carper began working at Paddy`s at just 19 years old and learned the business from the ground up. Some years later an opportunity arose for Chris to own the business he’d grown to love! And if you see Chris bantering with someone in the kitchen, that’s probably his father Pat Carper, who, after 30 years in the lumber business, is enjoying working alongside his son and learning his new trade as “fry cook”.
Owning a local sports bar was a natural fit for our family—while we’re not exactly accomplished athletes, we all love sports and four generations of Carper’s have enjoyed all that Coeur d’Alene has to offer—many Carper’s have made their way through Lake City and Coeur d’Alene High Schools. We proudly support all local athletics, but as University of Idaho Alums, on game day, we’ll be rooting for the Vandals, and one thing we learned from Grandpa Carper is that cheering for anyone other than Notre Dame is like going against the family.
With 12 flat screen TVs and 4 monster HD projection screens, there isn’t a bad seat in the house! Whether it’s a Vandals game, NFL Football, the Zags or even racing, you’ll be sure to find the event you want at Paddy’s. Paddy’s carries the NFL game day packages and offers dozens of college games on over 300 channels. Something special you want to see? Just give us a call!

Paddy’s is smoke-free and a family friendly environment. There`s lots of fun to be found in the arcade room with games like Big Buck Hunter, foosball, air hockey and more.

Party Time at St Paddys Time
