Dublin Wine Rooms is the third wine bar to occupy this IFSC venue, which enjoys great frontage and outdoor seating on Mayor Square. The cosy and intimate wine bar has a formal restaurant upstairs for weekend dining, but it’s the ground floor wine bar that has more character and charm.
Uniquely it offers over 50 wines by the glass, with each available to taste before buying thanks to the innovative Enomatic wine system. Diners buy a tasting card then select a wine to taste, or pour in measures of large or small glasses. The unique system is button operated and computerised, and diners can wander round the attractively laid out set-up selecting their next tipple.
A small deli at the front of the venue serves eat in or take out gourmet sandwiches by day and there’s a short but ambitious menu for evening dining.
On The Guide’s visit we found the food didn’t always deliver, but the fabulous staff, comfy seating, lively buzz and selection of over 300 wines ensured a memorable visit.
Come for the wine and antipasti platters and you should have a fun time.
