Bar, Pizza, European, Pub, Vegetarian Friendly, Vegan Options
The Jar is a comfortable bar with a warm welcome that embraces the spirit and vibrancy of Wexford Street. Our team is made up of young, familiar faces who share a love for great food, original drinks and superb hospitality. In selecting businesses to partner up with for The Jar, we looked for young, Irish companies that shared our values and vision with their produce, preparation and quality. We’re excited to have a Base Wood-Fired pizza oven here in the building. The Jar is an over 23s venue - please be aware you may be asked for ID at the door.

Booked a table for Friday night for myself and two friends. The manager brought us to our table , the front doors were open and we were all freezing cold. We asked him could We move tables( as there was plenty more available) he said...he would take a look and then never came back to us. He was rude and rushed us when eating our meal. Kept asking if he can take away the plates when we hadn’t even finished eating. We got served a round of drinks by the bartender then the manager came back and told us we had to leave. Potentially the worst customer experience I’ve had in Dublin. We were made to feel uncomfortable the whole time we were there. Used to go there for drinks and food but that will certainly be the last time myself and my friends go there.More

Scouting the city for outdoor dining places yesterday, I spotted the blackboard outside of The Jar advertising the terrace area and I'm so glad I spotted it! We were informed beforehand that they would need the table back for half 7 which still gave us...a generous hour and a half for a table of 5 without a booking. The terrace area is lovely and the heaters ensured that it wasn't too cold. As a vegetarian, I was impressed with the options and went for one of the pizzas which was delicious (there was also a vegan pizza that I didn't go for but sounded lovely). The staff were very accomodating and created a warm atmosphere in The Jar.More

I popped into the jar one last week by chance and was so glad I did. The pizza was amazing. I was only gutted by the fact we missed the new brunch menu. And the woman who served us, I believe her name was Caoimhe,...was incredible. So helpful, patient and good fun. Plus the fresh set on her...daaaamn. Would high recommend this placeMore

Avoid, that was my worst dining experience Ive ever had. Food was horrible and staff were very unprofessional. We went expecting Base Pizza, but were never told that they had changed management. When the food arrived it tasted like frozen pizza and was cold, tasted...awful. We have been loads of times before and loved it but the change in owners meant the place has gone seriously down hill. 2 large pizzas and chicken wings - worst €45 I spent.More

We hosted our end of year party here - for the third year in a row. Couldn't fault the service given to us - it was second to none. The food was so good and really reasonably priced. They gave us such a good private...area - couldn't be rivaled anywhere else in the city centre. Highly recommend.More

The pizza was very good. I totally recommend it. The place is more like a bar but it's totally worth a visit

I love the Jar usually as the staff are normally lovely and the atmosphere is great. I was here a few nights ago and there was a bartender (female, short, dark, foreign, I believe from a Spainish speaking country) who was the rudest person I...have ever come across in the hospitality industry. Myself and my friends were dancing near the bar and she continuously pushed past us and shouted at us to get out of her way. There was plenty of room and none of the other bartenders had a problem or said anything to us. She did not say anything politely from the beginning. It was shouting and aggressiveness. She threatened to kick me out of the bar when I explained that we are just standing here as the bar was very busy. She shouted at me again and again and then acted extremely aggressive and accused me of pushing her. Horrible bartender who clearly cannot work in the service industry. I am giving three stars as I usually enjoy going to the Jar. This bartender deserves no stars.More

Was here with a group of work colleagues for planned Christmas night out. Food was tasty but a bit overpriced , the service was absolutely disgraceful. The music was good but I won't be going back.
