I went as part of a group of five girls to House on Friday evening, we had pre booked our table and were seated in the Parlor.
Greeted on arrival,our friendly host Dermot introduced himself and welcomed us, the interior is impressive with small details like fresh flowers in old bottles, book cases groaning with old hard backs, comfortable couches and high chairs for people watching (the beautiful people and wannabes of Dublin).
This was an ideal place for a girls night out, the menu focusing on tapas had plenty of small plates for sharing. Huddled over our white wine while devising coping strategies for BO'Ds last home game we shared a cheese and meat board with delicious fresh pesto and spicy tomato chutney and spiced almonds, potato and chorizo bravas, calamari, chicken, sweet potato fries, salted cod cakes and meat balls. These dishes were well flavored, portioned and memorable.
Refraining from dessert, we opted for cocktails,very impressively when I didn't like mine on first sip the ever attentive waiter opted to exchange it and my friends free of charge for another, the original had been made to perfection so swaying to my particular taste buds was both welcome and very impressive. With the above food, four bottles of wine (Im glad I am not identifiable from this review), and six cocktails the bill came to to 275 which for this type of establishment was about average.
Downstairs was hopping, good music, mixed aged crowd though all very glam and a nice atmosphere for a late night bar.
For a dressy, girls night out of cocktails, small sharing plates and good atmosphere House ticks the boxes,
