“Amazing Cocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

We were staying at the westin so decided to go to the bar for a drink before we headed out for the evening. The cocktails in here are amazing! Especially the Watermelon Martini, made with fresh watermelon! Bit of a pricey round for 2 drinks but nice as a treat!

“Delish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We ate there two days in a row. The drinks were tasty, the bartender made some kind of special concoction...but it was good. My son said that it was the best burger he had ever had (beef) and he also ordered the same thing each day. Nice relaxing place to even just have a drink and watch a game on the TV's.

“Best Cocktails in Dublin but at a price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

I've spent many a night at the Mint bar as I go to dance at the salsa nights (friday) and swing nights (saturday). As hotel bars go it's the best in Dublin and the cocktails are sublime. However, they are pricey and despite the staff being friendly they are often understaffed and so service isn't great.

Dear Chrisdflack,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of the Mint Bar.
I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the entertainment in The Mint Bar on both Friday and Saturday nights. I am also happy that you mentioned the friendliness of the team.
With regards to the prices of our drinks we regularly check the pricing of similar bars in the city to ensure that our pricing is competitive. We also have special prices offers on certain cocktails and beers throughout the week along with promotional seasonal cocktails throughout the year.
I am disappointed to read that you feel the service is not up the standard that you expect from The Mint Bar and for this I apologise. The Mint Bar is one of the leading cocktail bars in Dublin city and at times these specialized drinks take extra time to prepare which may lead to a short delay in service during busy periods especially at the weekends.
Thank you again for your feedback.

Best regards,

Karl Byrne
The Mint Bar Manager

“Cocktail master class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Visited the Mint Bar at the Westin Hotel to do a cocktail master class.

This class is a great start to a night out. Four of us participated in the class. It consists of first been shown how to make a Cosmopolitan by the resident mixologist (barman). After been shown, two at a time you go behind the bar and make your very own one.

While you sit at the bar and enjoy your own handmade cocktail the mixologist then shows you 3 other cocktail creations which you get a miniature sample of.

We had the pleasure of having Michael as our mixologist. The class lasts approximately 45min-1hr. Michael has a great passion for his work and was very informative throughout the class. It is a very interactive class and everyone had a brilliant time. A great start to our night.
