Baltimore’s “Home of Irish Hospitality” is making a come back!


Atlas Restaurant Group is excited to announce that we will be re-opening The James Joyce Irish Pub & Restaurant, located at 616 President Street, as the same name and concept.


Open for 18 years at the entrance of the Harbor East neighborhood, James Joyce’s cozy and inviting atmosphere has always appealed to locals and tourists alike. With its decor and furnishings imported directly from Ireland, this authentic Irish pub transports you across thousands of miles of ocean to The Emerald Isle.


Originally opened in 2002 and closed in 2020 during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, Atlas looks forward to welcoming guests back into the familiar space for traditional Irish fare and live music every night.


“Irish pubs are known for being places that the community can gather to enjoy food, drinks and friendly conversation,” said Atlas Restaurant Group President & CEO Alex Smith. “While James Joyce remained shuttered, the neighborhood and city were missing an important and unique concept that was successful as a result of their neighborly hospitality, which we look forward to continuing.”


Atlas Restaurant Group expects to re-open James Joyce in late summer. Stay tuned for more details!
