According to Imbibe, the excellent team behind Aether and Echo, this sedate, beautiful space ‘combines the divinity of belle époque and the squalor of Irish charm’. Its understated interior belies a hip approach to night-time revelry – and daytime revelry too; the weekly Unholy Gospel Brunch, held every Sunday from 1-4pm, is a gorgeously soulful affair fronted by Cormac Neeson from County Down rockers The Answer. Grab one of the lovely booths for excellent food and drink or head for the club space upstairs, either way you’ll have a grand time. For equally alluring but decidedly more tourist-filled booths, don’t miss the Crown Bar, owned by the National Trust and undoubtedly one of the most beautiful pubs you will ever see.
