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!!

My friends and I always get together in Dublin just before Christmas. The Front Lounge used to be my local bar, before I moved to the UK four years ago. We had orginally booked a table for 6 people, but were unsure if a few more people would join us. The lady kindly set up some more places and were... More

Visited this pub in Dec on a trip to Dublin, draws a good crowd from the gay community, food was ok...but very expensive for what I ordered. Toilets are very shabby, tiny cubicles which are impossible to nearly turn around in, which is a shame considering they have put a lot of work into the pub itself. A very chilly... More

This gay friendly pub has recently been refurbished and it now serves food from an extortionately expensive menu (Beef burger and chips €16.50) A selection of pastries for €8.00. A pint of Tiger beer €6. Now I cannot comment on the food as I went elsewhere to eat...because of the prices. My friends and I only stayed to have two... More

Great to discover this place as I find the brunch options around town just okay. I love the new decor and the staff are friendly and helpful. Overall I would recommand a visit here,... More

I was starting to lose any hope of finding decent scrambled eggs in Dublin. Most places serve them runny, flavourless and white-ish. The ones in the new gastro area of the Front Lounge are probably the best I've had in years, not to mention the great brioche, the fresh salmon and the chips. Can't wait to go back and try... More

Went for a late brunch today. First time in since the makeover.. Looks really great, has a lovely flow now. Sat at a great table and had one of the better brunches in Dublin! Started with some well needed whiskey sours and chats with the very friendly staff. Seriously great smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and a pretty awesome eggs... More

Love the decor, real trendy spot. The food was to die for , so was the cocktails. I had the Cod which was devine and my partner had the strip-loin, which she loved. Can't wait to go back . Keep up the good work guys
