A plane ticket to Ireland is prohibitively expensive, and the flight attendant won’t let you drink, sing, or knit her dog an Aran sweater. Fast forward to the fun part of visiting Ireland with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of drinks at James Joyce Irish Pub in Ybor City.
Bedecked with Irish crests, flags, and classic dark wood furnishings, James Joyce Irish Pub unveils a lively modern tribute to the Eire taverns of old. Draught beers ($4 domestic, $5.25 import) including Guinness, Strongbow, Bass, Yuengling, Shock Top, Bud Light, and a wide variety of fermented ales in a bottle ($2.25–$4.50) wait behind the stocked bar to be poured into mugs or directly into patrons' cupped hands. Personable bartenders pack a teeming portfolio of spirits with Irish classics like Bushmills, Jameson, Tullamore, and Clontarf served alongside more sophisticated contemporary concoctions like the Irish Car Bomb ($7).
Yellow wallpaper and aged wood encircle the animated atmosphere inside James Joyce, which overlooks Seventh Avenue. Beer pong and live music on Thursday–Saturday nights shower pub attendees with competitive and melodious entertainment without having to endure tedious guitar sprints or saxophone spelling bees.
