This pub is a gem of a find, so do yourself a favor and check it out at your earliest convenience. At the James Joyce you will find at least 50 beers on tap, a full Irish whiskey menu, true authentic Irish food on the menu as well as a cozy old world feel.This pub always has a great selection of any seasonal beers, such as the ever popular Pumking!

On Thursday through Saturday the James Joyce has live bands entertaining.

The large patio outside is perfect for large parade parties that local Krewes might have as well as holding charity events. The staff on the day this Examiner visited to do the review was engaging and friendly. One Krewe ( Shamrocks ) love this pub so much it is their official Pub for gatherings!

Inside the James Joyce you will find many nooks for romantic meetings or private conversations. There are 2 fireplaces, and the walls have bookshelves. There is real handiwork in the carvings of the dark hardwood. In one end of the pub there is a corner for darts.
