In recent years Dublin has become home to some incredible fine dining restaurants, but what about when you just want to have a bit of fun? For those days when you just want to let your hair down we’ve rounded up a list of fun restaurants in Dublin.
Make your way to Dublin’s Creative Quarter and you’ll find 777. A trendy Mexican restaurant and cocktail bar that screams cool from its interior to the dishes on the menu. Try the pig’s head carnitas from the wood burning grills that are great for sharing. Or try the yellowfin tuna sashimi tostados which are a personal favourite. Did we mention they do some incredible Margaritas? And we all know nothing says fun like a good ol’ cocktail.
What do you get when you mix a classic Italian eatery with a New York bar? Nolita of course! Offering a great rooftop vibe, Nolita is the ideal place to spend the evening. In the heart of Dublin’s city centre, NoLIta prides itself on being one of the cities most loved night spots. With live entertainment, top class DJs and expert mixologists, these guys will have you dancing from the early evening into the wee hours.
Next on our list of fun restaurants in Dublin we have Yamamori Izakaya. They first came on the scene in 2011, and have been churning out some of the best Japanese tapas dishes (Japas) ever since. Head downstairs where you’ll find a Japanese-style drinking house, with famous Izakaya cocktails, beers, and sake. Here you’ll be surrounded by manga cartoons, lanterns, and deep soul tunes from Dublin’s up-and-coming DJs to get you ready for the night ahead.
