Cocktail Bar

A COSY LITTLE SPEAKEASY IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
9 Below bar is Dublin’s hideaway for seductive cocktails and stimulating conversation. Nestled in the former basement of historical Stephen’s Green Hibernian Club, we have taken great pleasure in refurbishing our own piece of this prestigious building, originally built in 1756. Our beautifully designed space offers 4 intimate rooms in which to drink and be merry (and a little mischievous).

Our menu features an enticing selection of champagnes, spirits and cocktails, all dispensed by a couple of fun-loving bartenders who really know their craft. Swing by for after-work libations and you might just find yourself staying all evening!

    Loved the atmosphere! Really cosy and intimate. Went with a friend for drinks which were fantastic if slightly more expensive than average. Would definitely go back!

    This place was brilliant until the weekend of the 18/12/21. They changed all the staff. The drinks now take 25 minutes to arrive. It’s literally like waiting for food. The drinks which don’t taste as good at all anymore either. If the owner is reading this, please hire back all the staff that used to work there. The new regime is garbage. I believed their is a new bar manager there. I presume the changes came with him.

    Beautiful setting with welcoming service. Delicious cocktails, but if being overly critical perhaps a little too much ice!
