14 F Street / Northwest / Capitol Hill / Washington DC / 20001
The welcome sign reads, 'Give me your thirsty, your famished, your befuddled masses.' There's a picture of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Elvis over the bar. Kelly's Irish Times is a popular bar for politicians, Irish and otherwise. It was a St. Patrick's Day favorite of President Ronald Reagan.
Housed in a standalone brick building that is dwarfed by its surroundings, this quaint place offers an all-Irish experience in a boisterous setting -- loads of charm, loads of brews. Although the menu offers primarily American eats, the specials board may be the real source of Irish fare: look for shepherd's pie and corned beef and cabbage...
A quaint, sometimes boisterous irish pub, with great food, perfect cold pints, a wicked cast of characters behind the bar and a world class jukebox.
Known the world over, not only for being one of the most celebrated Irish Pub’s in America, but for Kelly’s famous wall. With over 100+ years of history gracing this facade, you see details such as 1930’s Dublin Police Patches; one-of-a-kind unopened beer bottles from the 1800s; antique galvanized ice buckets from Glascow; torn Redskins Superbowl tickets, Sonny Jurgensen autographs and a multitude of celebrity/politician what-nots.
You never see the same thing twice!
