Apparently this bar is due to change hands. The night out was good mainly because the company was good, but neither myself or my partner could get the drink we wanted (no pinot grigio!??). We had reserved a section and it was given away, even though we arrived on time, and we were left standing in a thoroughfare, squished. Not... More

My partner and I came here, fab bar, fab cocktails and fab service! It's a gay bar and so what? A really good atmosphere, where I hope people leave their prejudice at home.

Nice place to spend few hours with friends, chatting and of course great drinks. i do not like the kind of music they play, it's a little 80's 90's for my taste...but with friends , it's ok.

I have visited here countless times, it's a lovely venue, verbally great atmosphere and the cocktails are fab! I brought a friend from the UK here yesterday afternoon (Thursday 18th) and was mortified by the service she received from a staff member called Ross. We had already had one drink each ( 4 of us) and my friend went up... More

Came across this little place whilst wondering around Dublin looking for somewhere to have a cheeky cocktail. A very cool place and we were served by a super friendly girl who made a great cocktail! Excellent drinks selection and a sizeable room at the rear which was busy and bustling when we were in. A pretty young crowd but this... More

Frequent visitor to the bar and usually a,ways happy and friendly staff, but the last weekend in June , I dealt with a very rude bar man. He clearly did not want to be serving drinks on this day. His attitude sucked and he seemed like he couldn't care about looking after customers. I witnessed a customer ask him for... More

Really great bat with helpful staff and very courteous clientele. The music was good and not too loud so you could still have a conversation. The cocktails were divine ....some may say expensive but it is Dublin and you pay for were you drink. ..yes I would return in a heart beat. .. Dan

This review may not reflect the "typical" ambience of the Front Lounge, as I was only ever there in the late afternoon, when it was very quiet. At that hour (between 3 pm and 6 pm) it's the perfect place to chill out. I went there a few times during my recent trip to Dublin, and loved it every time.... More

Arrived with friend and had pint and cocktail My friends beer wasn't great so he changed it at the bar however the replacement one was just as bad. Surprise surprise the barman refused point blank to change it again for a different typescript beer . He was aggressive and rude into the bargain. Nothing would change his mind and we... More

A Newly refurbished bar and kitchen with a unique food menu designed and served up by our new in house chef Denis Massey, The Front Lounge is now firmly placed as one of the premier eateries and cocktail establishments in the city. Saturday and Sunday brunches are a must on top of the main menu that runs through the week. All of the food that Denis and his team prepare is sourced from artisan suppliers and organic farms ensuring only the finest of food arrives at your table.

Along with the first class food fair the new look cocktail bar offers up an incredible list of spirits from all around the globe and a tailor made menu poured over with meticulous detail. The staff pride themselves on using only the finest products and the freshest of fruits and homemade syrups to create you special cocktails you won't forget.

DJ's play on Fridays and Saturdays after the food operation winds down to take you into the early hours of the morning. What better way to prepare for brunch at the weekend!! Our new, state of the art 'Secret DJ' system plays Sunday-Thursday creating the best ambiance at all hours of the day.

A true gem in our increasingly vibrant city, we look forward to welcoming you!!
