6. Bowlane

Bow Lane is a late night cocktail bar that appeals to a cross-section of Dublin society from the gritty underclass of sophisticates to creatives and the party set. Bow Lane has areas that satisfy a want for exclusivity and other areas that create a space for typical Dublin social intercourse. Quality cocktails, craft and classic beers, and of course spirits complement the modern Irish dishes at the bar and in the restaurant. Among their sophisticated cocktails, we tasted the Bow Lane Boomerang


boomerang cocktail

Absolut vodka, kahlua, mozart dark chocolate liquer, double shot of espresso, sugar syrup, shaken & strained into a coupette glass finished w/ a white chocolate & orange foam.

The Recipe is a secret of the bar and we now understand why they called it the Boomerang: we went back for the same cocktail, not once but twice!

7. The Liquor Rooms

Located on the easy-to-get-to Wellington Quay along the Liffey, The liquor rooms is a quirky alternative venue in the centre of Dublin which hosts art events and performances: Burlesque gigs, live DJs, poetry reading and may other artsy attractions. With an array of housemade tinctures and mixes, the finest quality spirits and ingenious methods, the theater of the cocktail explodes into life at The Liquor Rooms. From cocktails to craft beers and wine to whiskey tastings, they provide a selection that would satisfy the most demanding of connoisseurs. We sampled the oh-so-elegant cocktail called Madame

Olmeca Altos Blanco Tequila, Hibiscus & Strawberry Syrup, Lemon, Whites, Cherry Tonic.

In a shaker, add jam, gin or vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and several ice cubes. Shake briskly, then strain into a rocks glass half-filled with crushed ice. Float a spoonful of jam on top of the ice, and gradually stir it to taste.
