JM Curley sounds like a standard Irish Pub, but it’s a lot cooler than that, with a dark interior that doesn’t have a single vintage Guinness ad on the walls and a very good beer list. If you work downtown, this should be in your regular rotation of after-work drinking spots, especially since it also happens to serve one of our favorite burgers in the city.
