Always visit here for a catch up with friends. Never too busy, never too loud and crowded. Hidden gem, plain in sight. I’ve passed it many a time but never noticed until a friend recommended. Love the authentic, rustic, old school decor. Beautiful wine selection...More

This wine bar is well worth a visit. Small and retro. Something a bit different...welcoming, quirky and drinks are well priced.

Very interesting place for a wine. Bar is lovely and take you back in time. Barman could be more outgoing, no small talk strictly business with him. Enjoy it.

What a lovely quirky little place! I was here recently. It serves a nice variety of wines and it’s very retro. There’s a cosy fireplace that adds to the atmosphere. It’s definitely like stepping back in time. Well worth a visit!

This tiny quaint wine bar is a prefect start to your evening whether it be a pre dinner drink or the first spot of the night. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Great place. Chilled atmosphere. Calm interior. Wines and bottled beers. Little garden out the back which we did not sit in as the rain was pouring down.

Gorgeous red wine (we had a bottle of the Portillo Malbec), quick service, cosy atmosphere, good location off Oliver Plunkett Street. A really lovely little bar that I would highly recommend.

Gorgeous place, chilled vibe. Bar tender Turlough is lovely, an asset to the place! French Sauvignon blanc is really nice!

We needed a place to go while we waited for a table for dinner and this small quaint little bar did the trick nicely. They had a good range of wines (although no Rose which is what we wanted originally). The service was good and...More

Went to this place on a Friday night for a post dinner glass of wine or two. This is a place to escape to; dimly lit, nice vibe, music not loud but what a place to discover. It is spartan but that is the charm...More
