The Star and The Shamrock - where two ancient cultures come together into one modern day neighborhood melting pot.

Located in the H Street/Atlas District of Northeast Washington DC, The Star and The Shamrock is a New York- style deli and traditional Irish pub. photo med 1 Sound like a contradiction? Jewish and Irish cultures, celebrated (and tormented!), have more in common than you'd think! Misery loves company-- Oy Vey! So come in and enjoy the best of both in one place!

Sample an extensive mix of Irish bottles and drafts, alongside a pint of He'brew Ale. Try a Reuben with a side of latkes and a pint of Black and Tan, or a shepherd's pie with a side of matzo balls. Irish Folk or Klezmer? Both go great with a fine Irish or Rye Whiskey!

So here's to your good health, and to life! Sláinte and L'Chaim!
