The Home Of Ireland’s Native Spirit

Our Menu

Named after the year Poitín was banned in Ireland, Bar 1661 is a cocktail bar in the heart of Dublin, and the proud flagship for our native spirit, Poitín. With a staunchly Irish approach to everything we do, we work with the best producers on this island, bringing together the niche with the revered, the emerging with the established and the traditional with the innovative. By paying homage to all of Ireland’s native drinks, but especially Poitín, Bar 1661 is writing its own chapter in the colourful story of this notorious Irish spirit.

The Bar

Independently owned and operated, nestled among the fruit markets in the heart of Dublin 7.

The Drinks

Unique statements of Irish origin, we work with the best ingredients and producers on this island.

The Story

Our story goes back to 1661, the year Poitín was banned in Ireland, driving our native spirit underground.

The Events

Whiskey experiences, Poitín masterclasses, and live blues and soul music channeling a new Irish sound.
