There are no airs to Grogan’s. One of the most beloved pubs in the city, this is the spot where friends meet for a catch-up drink and end up settling in for the evening. It’s also where Amy Schumer, Glen Hansard and Judd Apatow led a sing-song a few years ago. If you’re feeling peckish, order a quintessential pub snack – the ham and cheese toastie.
For centuries, the people of Dublin have known what they are doing when it comes to putting together an excellent pub. The Irish capital is famous for the things, but what does that mean for glitzy cocktails and sleek modern bars? The two things aren’t entirely related, of course, and the best bars in Dublin show that this place has its finger on the pulse of nightlife, no matter the type. Going out in Dublin is an exercise in stylish drinking.
The city centre plays host to many of Dublin’s best bars, but don’t be afraid to venture a little further out in search of excess. Wander away from the iconic attractions in the centre, and you’ll find exciting new bars popping up all the time. You might just find your new favourite spot. Even if you don’t, you’re in for a tremendous night.
