Owned by the same Foley clan as J.J. Foley’s Cafe—Jerry runs the South End, and this one is run by his cousin Jim—this Irish pub has a decidedly divier feel. For many years, the only spots on this block were Foley’s and a homeless shelter, and it’s possible there was some serious overlapping in the clientele.  But there’s something to be said for consistency. For more than half a century, Foley’s has remained friendly, bright and cheap—the kind of a place where you’ll find yourself drinking alongside cab drivers, bankers and Bruins fans.
