3 Great BYOB Hotspots in Dublin

The headlines may be hinting giddily at recovery, but every gal in the know will tell you prosecco in a tote bag is the only accessory worth bringing to a party. However, much as we love Lean Start Up-ing our day to day lives, there’s nothing as relaxing as eating, and drinking out. Also, a corkscrew is a unruly handbag companion. How to solve the bank balance conundrum? BYOB restaurants. Set aside some bus money for corkage and you may actually be able to go beyond two courses. Here are three BYOB hotspots in Dublin we really rate.

Leon 55

The seasonal, eclectic menu changes each’month (two options per course), so check?for updates; €2 corkage, but when you?buy from Redmonds off-licence around?the corner (with proof of purchase),?corkage is free.

Gallaher & Co Bistro

Hearty,?European caf?-style cuisine (think Hereford?burgers with Cashel Blue; salt and chilli’squid) matched with a chic interior and?central location near Trinity make this the?perfect meet-up spot. Corkage: €4 per?bottle of wine; €1 per bottle of beer.

The Vintage Kitchen

Love music? Their 1970s’record player is always spinning, plus you can?bring along your own vinyls, so long as they fit in?with the laid-back atmosphere. Delicious classic’dishes created with fresh local ingredients.?No corkage fee when you order from the set’menu or two courses from the dinner menu.
