Named after the famous Irish writer from the turn of the 20th Century, the James Joyce Irish Pub strives for a distinctly Irish feel. With its long wooden bar and casual interior, this Annex pub distinguishes itself from others in the neighbourhood with its nightly live music. Usually featuring traditional Irish tunes, the pub draws in crowds for its shows. Drop in on any night of the week and you are sure to be surprised by the high caliber of music originating from deep inside this Annex gem.
Kiss Me, I’m Irish
As you would expect from a typical Irish bar, the James Joyce serves standard pub food that compliments its wide selection of ales and liquors. When sipping from one of its 15 draught beers, order some hot and spicy chicken wings, or grab the unique meatloaf chili – a sworn favourite among regulars. On tap, the Joyce serves a selection of imported beers, such as Guiness and Kilkenny, as well as an assortment of domestic brews.
Cozy and Snug
The pub has a small, cozy interior that can get full quickly. The friendly staff ensure consistently quick service, even during a big rush. On summer days and nights, they open all the windows to let in the warm air. In the winter, the Joyce becomes a snug watering hole for the regulars. With two pool tables and TVs scattered throughout, the Joyce has all it needs to keep its customers coming back.
