It sounds ridiculous but it's true- the music is WAY too loud in here and also it's too dark! A group of us had a bite to eat here and I wouldn't come back. It's a large bar with lots of space. Everyone was happy with the drinks, the 2 for one cocktails. Food was grand, burgers and chips is... More

TLDR; visited at 6pm. Hardly a cocktail bar, music too loud, had one drink and left. I went here during the week for a 2 for 1 cocktail around 6pm. I had only been late at night before... I now know the setting and music makes much more sense after midnight. Disappointed to find I couldn't get something as simple... More

I went to this venue for some drinks with a friend. Music was very loud and service was slow and confusing. We had 2 servers come up to take our order then waited 20 min for our cocktails then had to hunt a server down to get another. Seemed like none were assigned to specific sections. We did not eat...

We had booked a table in PYG after having been for drinks previously. We had travelled to Dublin to visit a friend and were looking forward to lunch. Firstly, we had to repeatedly ask the staff to take our order, after numerous attempts and about 30 minutes, someone finally took our order. We noted that everything was overpriced but assumed...

Went on a trip to Dublin with family - husband and two 6 year olds. It was dark and dirty when we entered, but seemed busy and we were tired and hungry. Ordered kids food - mini burger, and asked for it to come with veg - not salad. The burger came and was one inch in diameter, with rocket... More

This place appears like any other eatery/ coffee shop. Had I known there was a bar attached I would have given it a miss (although we thought it was a coffee shop). However we simply wanted coffee or light lunch and queued for a table. Staff seemed under a bit of pressure and there seemed to be some confusion. Prices... More

This place was a great spot to chill with mates. Really enjoyed settling in for an evening out on the town after enjoying some exquisite nachos. The music in this venue was really up tempo and great for a boogie. The beer and staff was on point too. All in all a deadly venue, would recommend to anyone after a... More
