Description: 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!!

“A fun and friendly bar”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

When it opened first the Front Lounge was loved for its spacious interior, comfy couches and easy-going friendly atmosphere. Initially it was a very gay friendly place and one would see plenty of gay and straight couples there. More recently it has become a bit more of a gay bar but still attracts a "cool" mixed crowd.

This place remains one of my favourite places in Dublin to go for a drink - the vibe and attitude of the makes for a wonderful chill-out space.

Very highly recommended.

“Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

I went here a couple of times for some drinks. It has a really nice vibe to it. It's a very chilled and laid back place while still being very elegant looking inside. Perfect for a relaxing drink or two after work or for meeting a friend/partner for a chat in the evening.

“Chill vibe, huge space but they closed early”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

We went on a monday and were happy to find a place in dublin with a good mix of guys/girls, couples, and groups. My girlfriend and I were happy to find a place where we weren't the only girls. The only minor downside was that it turned out the bar closed early on monday. Oops.
