Finnegan's Wake Photo
This traditional Irish pub may share the name of Joyce's notorious swan song, but its literary pretensions end with a crooked portrait of the author as a wall ornament. It's a humble local spot through and through, occupied every evening by older professionals sharing after-work beers, with investment advice and business news blaring on two big screens. Those without an AARP card or a solid knowledge of the surrounding neighborhood may feel a bit out of place, but Finnegan's certainly offers a quaint alternative to the usually far-younger postgrad mob. The Wake's full restaurant remains its major draw, with staples like steak, shepherd's pie, and the ever-pleasant bangers-and-mash anchor making excellent drunk comfort food.
