Description
One of Dublin’s best kept secrets, Platform 61 offers imaginative food, elegant wines and extraordinary cocktails in the intimate surroundings of an underground hideaway on South William Street.

Platform 61’s stunning setting takes its inspiration from a secret subway platform under the Waldorf Astoria in New York. The platform with its specially built golden elevator allowed VIPs such as President F.D. Roosevelt to access the hotel in private, and also played host to Andy Warhol’s infamous ‘Underground Parties’

Today, the platform known as Track 61 has become the holy grail for New York’s urban explorers seeking to uncover its legend, lore and legacy.

In turn, Platform 61 has become the go-to venue for Dublin’s social urbanites seeking only the best in dining experiences.

Come experience Platform 61 for yourself.
