Cocktail in hand, watching the world go by

Cocktail in hand, watching the world go byInstagram @fadestsocial

We have to grab the good weather when we can (as the rain keeps creeping in again).  Here's where you can get outdoors and get an ice-cold cocktail in hand in the idyllic sunshine!

The Taphouse

Toting a sun-trap roof with proximity to restaurants like Mak at D6 and Wowburger, the Taphouse is the perfect place to spend a boozy afternoon (that leads into a boozy evening…)

The Marker Hotel

Their rooftop bar hosts stunning views on the Dublin skyline, only to be enhanced by the backdrop of a sunset. With nibbles and delicious cocktails on offer, what’s not to love?

The Barge

Nothing quite says sun in Dublin like a sea of people at the Barge. Unless you’re one of the lucky ones to get a seat, enjoy a nice patch of grass with friends and a few cold ones.

Vintage Cocktail Club

Associated with prohibition-style exclusivity and dark corners, the VCC also offers up a lovely outdoor area sure to make those cocktails taste even better.

Although we're known for our clandestine door and candle lit rooms we like to have the option to enjoy the Sunshine on the rare occasion it makes an appearance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #VintageCocktailClub #RingOurBell #VintageStyle #SpeakEasy #TempleBar #DublinCity #DublinBars #craftcocktails #classicocktails #CocktailsAndDreams #homebartenders #cocktailoftheday #liquorgram #drinkstagram #cocktailhour #cocktailphotography #liqpic #bartendersbible #ImbibeGram #libations #firstroundonus #cocktailporn #igersDublin #Ireland #igersireland #DublinDaily #DublinCity #DublinBars

No Name Bar

Or it’s full title, The Bar With No Name. Add a bit of mystery to your sunshine excursion with this bar’s quirky outdoor deck, loaded with optional sun umbrellas for those more prone to looking sunburnt as opposed to sunkissed.

Fade Street Social

With a tapas bar and a restaurant to keep your tummy happy, the rooftop bar boasts a fab view of the Georges Street area as well as great cocktails and an extensive wine menu.

Spring is in the air, which is the perfect time to enjoy good food outdoors
