Kelly’s Irish Times

Irish Pub in Capitol Hill & South DC

Kelly’s implores on its front sign: ‘Give me your thirsty, your famished, your befuddled masses,’ and the masses respond. Fans of the on-tap Guinness and hefty whiskey stash tend to be youngish – mostly students and Congressional staffers – plus a smattering of cops and firemen. The layout is like every Irish pub you’ve ever been in, but it’s an exemplar of the genre.
