It usually takes nothing but a four-leaf-clover cut out of construction paper to make a bar “Irish,” but this tchotchke-filled River North pub is different. It’s certified by the James Joyce Society and full of real, live Irish people. So throw down that Guinness (or Boddingtons) with confidence: This is the real thing.
