On our first visit we were introduced to what once was ‘Bakers Bar’ sitting proudly on the corner of Thomas and Meath St. Clearly once a local pub with a warm charm to it. Kathleen the flower lady set up outside providing colour and conversation to all who pass. The interior was steeped in history with memorabilia of John Wayne, Elvis, Muhammad Ali and lots more. Clearly a place for all manner of locals, a home away from home.
Our approach was all inclusive. To welcome locals back to a good pub but also to attract new passing trade. We refreshed the façade, retained and restored everything we could to the interior. Some of this was budget driven, other things were out of love. The concept was always to create a good bar that walks the line between Old Dublin and a new fresh vibrant destination.
