Cant express how great this place is. Only realised it was a gay bar after a few hours in but thats not really relevant. The cocktails are great. The knowledge and friendliness of the staff is great. Sorting out all sorts for us. 9 euro for a single measure was steep but it was quality. Also had some games dotted... More

The property looks good from the outside, however, once inside there is no customer service. Poor quality food and the most unhelpful staff I have ever met. Vert strange as there are so many other great places to dine in Dublin. Will certainly give this place a miss in the future.

Apparently this bar is due to change hands. The night out was good mainly because the company was good, but neither myself or my partner could get the drink we wanted (no pinot grigio!??). We had reserved a section and it was given away, even though we arrived on time, and we were left standing in a thoroughfare, squished. Not... More

My partner and I came here, fab bar, fab cocktails and fab service! It's a gay bar and so what? A really good atmosphere, where I hope people leave their prejudice at home.

Nice place to spend few hours with friends, chatting and of course great drinks. i do not like the kind of music they play, it's a little 80's 90's for my taste...but with friends , it's ok.

I have visited here countless times, it's a lovely venue, verbally great atmosphere and the cocktails are fab! I brought a friend from the UK here yesterday afternoon (Thursday 18th) and was mortified by the service she received from a staff member called Ross. We had already had one drink each ( 4 of us) and my friend went up... More

Came across this little place whilst wondering around Dublin looking for somewhere to have a cheeky cocktail. A very cool place and we were served by a super friendly girl who made a great cocktail! Excellent drinks selection and a sizeable room at the rear which was busy and bustling when we were in. A pretty young crowd but this... More

Frequent visitor to the bar and usually a,ways happy and friendly staff, but the last weekend in June , I dealt with a very rude bar man. He clearly did not want to be serving drinks on this day. His attitude sucked and he seemed like he couldn't care about looking after customers. I witnessed a customer ask him for... More

Description
A Newly refurbished bar and kitchen with a unique food menu designed and served up by our new in house chef Denis Massey, The Front Lounge is now firmly placed as one of the premier eateries and cocktail establishments in the city. Saturday and Sunday brunches are a must on top of the main menu that runs through the week. All of the food that Denis and his team prepare is sourced from artisan suppliers and organic farms ensuring only the finest of food arrives at your table.

Along with the first class food fair the new look cocktail bar offers up an incredible list of spirits from all around the globe and a tailor made menu poured over with meticulous detail. The staff pride themselves on using only the finest products and the freshest of fruits and homemade syrups to create you special cocktails you won't forget.

DJ's play on Fridays and Saturdays after the food operation winds down to take you into the early hours of the morning. What better way to prepare for brunch at the weekend!! Our new, state of the art 'Secret DJ' system plays Sunday-Thursday creating the best ambiance at all hours of the day.

A true gem in our increasingly vibrant city, we look forward to welcoming you!!
