Uniquely Irish Drinks

We are passionate about creating unique statements of Irish origin. We boast the largest selection of Poitín anywhere in the world, as well as a lovingly selected collection of vintage and premium Irish whiskeys, gins and even Irish wine. BAR 1661 also features rotating craft beer taps and of course Guinness. 

Award-winning cocktails
At BAR 1661 you will find the niche with the revered, the emerging with the established and the traditional with the innovative. Irish to the core, our innovative cocktail menu features poitín and Irish spirit drinks. We also mix and pair with an all-Irish selection, including bitters, sea salts and botanicals, while working with seasonal foragers and our city's local grocers. In 2019, the year we opened, our independent bar won five awards at the Irish Craft Cocktail Awards, including 'Ireland's Best Cocktail Bar'.

Our whiskey
Our whiskeys are selected for the simple reason that we love and admire them, with a penchant for single cases, cask strength and independent bottles. We love drinking and talking about whiskey almost as much as Poitín, so feel free to ask us anything! We celebrate whiskey in all its styles from around the world and regularly offer special tastings from our favourite Irish producers. We are also exclusive Irish partner to the Scotch Malt Whiskey Society.
WHISKEY SELECTION
Gin, Agave, Rum
Love gin but tired of gin and tonic? You're in the right place. We've got a diverse selection of over 30 gins from both far afield and closer to home. We've also got an exciting selection of tequila and mezcal from craft and established producers in Mexico, and a truly global selection of rum from around the world to recommend.
