The James Joyce, right next to the Federal, is a nice little pub done up in Irish style. Never having been to Ireland, I'm not sure if it's authentic or not, but it has a nice feel with a lot of wood and nice big booths. It's not overly cheesy like some Irish pubs.
The beer selection is good, and like it's neighbor next door, the food is surprisingly good. A limited menu, but much, much better than your standard bar fare. This is a fun place to hang out with a group of friends! It can get smokey, especially due to its small size.
