Located high up on Upper Baggot Street, the Waterloo Bar is a true gem of Dublin. From the moment you step foot into the Waterloo, the staff makes sure everyone feels right at home. Warm and welcoming they make sure everyone has a fantastic night. This is part of what makes the Waterloo an absolute delight.
Although it is not a typical traditional Irish pub, it still maintains its Irish roots. This is apparent from the décor. The bar is laid out a bit differently, essentially as one long hallway alongside a bar. The bar is also split into two sections. One resembles the more traditional Irish pub – Perfect for people looking to enjoy an after work drink. The second area of the bar has many pictures of literary figures and gorgeous pieces of artwork hang on the walls.
The Bar itself has a wide variety of beers available – It is sure to have something to delight absolutely everyone. For those who may not be big fans of beer, the Waterloo Bar offers an amazing cocktail menu. If you have a sweet-tooth, we would definitely recommend the Solero or the Jaffa Fake.
They have an extensive menu, making it quite hard to pick something as each item sounds better than the last. For the main course I opted for the grilled Gamba Prawns. The huge portion of prawns was absolutely delicious. .The chilli and parsley butter was the perfect accent to the meal. The meal was accompanied by toasted garlic bread and was a perfect complement to the dish. As a side order, the generous helping of onion rings arrived crunchy and cooked to perfection.
To top off the meal I chose the homemade chocolate brownie. The brownie was rich, creamy and filling. It was topped with a giant scoop of chocolate ice cream and kirsch cherries. It was an absolute treat.
Overall the Waterloo Bar is the perfect spot for a night out. With a lively atmosphere, delicious food and drink as well as good music – what more could you ask for.
