Description: 37 Dawson Street; set right in the heart of the city; a food and drink emporium where "all is not what it seems". It has a distinctive offering of food and drink in both eclectic and stunning surroundings. All the ingredients for a great night out can be found under the roof of 37. All bars boast an extensive range of cocktails with twists on traditional recipes & a range of new concoctions, catering for the avid connoisseur. Why not step back in time and visit our exceptional Whiskey Bar, this cosy retreat is a celebration of Irish whiskey. We serve from 3 menus throughout the week; Lunch, Evening-sharing & Sunday Brunch. All dishes are lovingly prepared with fresh ingredients, and suit our vast selection of drinks perfectly.

“Full of Character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

This is a new bar on Dawson Street that has really gone far in developing its character. It is full of antiques and crazy things, with plenty of animal heads on the walls. I went with friends for drinks and thought it was a cool little place with very friendly staff. It seems to be doing well, too, because on a rainy Sunday it was pretty packed.

No cocktail menu yet - just wine, but they have a good selection.

“All you could hope for!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Popped in here to see what it was like and Wow! The decor is brilliant - zany, classical and very different - all is a positive way! There's an intimate piano bar away from the maddening crowds; the bar is like walking in to your living room with beer on tap, the service is excellent.

The dining room is upstairs overlooking the Mansion House. White linen tableclothes and very pleasant staff! The menu is based on sharing adding to the intimacy! The baked camembert cheese is to die for. The meat platter is delicious and the lemon posset is exactly that - lemony! Definitely will be back!
