The only bar that can boast a Grafton Street entrance, is slick new Dublin 2 bar ‘Tapped’ officially the most superlatively situated bar in Ireland? The brand new nightlife gem in the heart of Dublin has opened to rave reviews, thanks to their extensive beverage offering and huge number of taps on site (hence the name!).

Within its first few weeks of opening Irish celebrities from Greg O’Shea, to James Kavanagh, to Karen Koster and Holly Carpenter have been spotted socialising at the trendy new venue.

The owners wanted to ensure the bar would be one of the most sustainable in Ireland, meaning the entire venue is made almost entirely of only wood, concrete and steel and waste has been massively reduced by such actions as having your favourite cocktails now on tap.

Don’t worry however, they’re still just as good as you’re used to, due to the bar’s unique ‘cocktail lab’ where everything is made fresh every day using only premium ingredients.
