Bruxelles, Est. 1886

Posted 8 months ago in Food and Drink

Bruxelles is a cosmopolitan bar. Located just a step away from Grafton Street, Dublin’s busiest shopping thoroughfare, Bruxelles is the ideal venue for to grab a bite and take in the scenery. It’s a sports bar and music venue, spanning across three unique areas hosting live music. It’s location makes it an ideal place if you can’t be live in action at the big game; see it in Bruxelles.

It might be better; with terrace banter, cold beer and cosy surroundings you can’t go wrong. Bruxelles is an ideal meeting place because it’s right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Dublin. Once you get there, you won’t want to leave.

Bruxelles Bar played such a huge part in the birth of the Irish music scene. To Skid Row, then Thin Lizzy, this became their second home around the late 1960’s-early 1970’s.

The Saloon Bar on the ground floor with its snug and outdoor terrace seating is where it all happens and everyone’s welcome. A random selection of past visitors include; Michael Flatley, Paul Scholes, Brian O’Driscoll, Oasis, Iron Maiden, Snow Patrol, Imelda May and Phil Lynott. To name but a few!

Along with the Saloon Bar there is also Flanders Bar, a haven to rock heads. The new refurb gives a nod to the legends who once met here. Pop down, check it out and be inspired in the Phil Lynott snug.

The Zodiac Lounge was first established in the late ‘60s when public house doors were opened to women. The Zodiac’s role is continually evolving and now it’s the got to, to hear alternative rock music and hang out with a younger, more fashion discerning crowd.

Bruxelles is a home to Phil Lynott memorabilia and with his famous bronze statue outside greeting you as you enter, this is not a bar you want to stroll past.
