Faux Pub

Seamus McDaniel's, in the Dogtown neighborhood of St. Louis, serves Guinness and has a poster on one wall of Irish public houses, but that's as close to the real thing as it gets. The shebeen that occupied the same building years ago came closer, however, to replicating an authentic Irish pub. There is no Seamus McDaniels, he's fictional character. Whereas, the previous establishment, O'Shea's, was originally owned and operated by Democratic ward committeeman Jack O'Shea.
