Fusion / Eclectic
A beautiful art deco Cocktail bar located on the mezzanine level of Stella Rathmines. Once a bustling ballroom in the 1920s, it’s kept all of its old-world charms. The bar serves a full drinks menu that includes delectable, expertly made cocktails and a food menu of delicious lite bites and cinema favourites 7 days a week.

The cocktail menu plays off the classics, but with a modern twist. On occasion, taking inspiration from the blockbuster movies shown in our auditorium.

Whether you want to sip a cocktail and enjoy a bite-to-eat before or after the movie or visit the Stella Cocktail Club as your sole destination, we have all the ingredients for a truly special experience.

Please note the Stella Cocktail Club exercises an over 23's policy.

    Our first visit to the Stella and it was outstanding .. food was so nice I had salmon my partner had steak, cooked to perfection. Staff were the best I've encountered, friendly, relaxed but attentive. Cocktails were amazing. Booked a couch for long movie Babylon, so comfy and relaxing. Would recommend coming here for long movie. Incredible place.

    Exceeded all expectations! Photos do not do it justice! An excellent venue to relax in and soak up the atmosphere before enjoying a movie. Had drinks there before seeing Babylon - the perfect pre-show experience. The 1920s style is beautifully achieved and is maintained throughout the venue, even into the toilets. Would recommend to any movie lover. Worth every penny.

    The place is lovely, very nice for a nightout and a conversation. The staff is too attentive IMO and I wish the food choices were less fast-food like, considering the whole atmosphere.

    Lovely experience, fab drinks and good choice of food. They made a mistake on our food order and comped us the item, my date ended up having four course and the most expensive was was free. Attentive service and so apologetic when they realised they had made a mistake. Great spot!

    - Amazing venue - decor is perfect - Staff were excellent. Friendly and attentive - Cocktails were delicious, if a little pricey. - Food was good without being amazing. - The only areas, I felt needed improvement were: - Music/sound system: The choice of music for most of the evening was totally not in keeping with the surroundings and the overall atmosphere of the building/vibe (1920s type classy vibe etc) and the sound system was very poor. I think if this was tweaked it could be a huge improvement. - I also think there should be more enforcement of a dress code as quite a few people were dressed very casually in hoodies etc and this reduces the "feel" of the place. Overall a lovely experience and will be back.

    Myself and my husband enjoyed a lovely evening at the Stella Cocktail Bar, and a movie in the cinema. We had our starter and cocktails in the bar. And our main course was brought discretely to our comfy couch in the cinema. The service was excellent, I loved the smart blue waistcoat suits. Food was lovely, better than I expected, however a limited menu. The bar was a bit draughty where we were sitting near the stairs and at toilets. I guess this comes with an old building, which itself is stunning. Overall a super evening to remember.

    We have been to Stella Cocktail on numerous occasions and this was our worst experience. There was a large group attending the Stella Cocktail when we arrived who were leaving at the time of our arrival. We were 10mins early for our booking, I let the girl know we were early and were happy to wait until our table was ready. I had booked well in advance as we were attending the Stella Cinema. The table we were given was at the back of the venue near the window in the corner. The table was very tight and it was located at the stair case and was very cold. We asked the girl who checked us in could we move as we were freezing and suggeste a table that needed to be cleaned but we didn't mind waiting but was told that table was required back by 9pm but our booking was till 9.30pm. I appreciate the evening was very busy and the girl who was serving after we checked in was extremely helpful and knowlegable. I am hoping this was a once off as I always enough my time in the Stella Cocktail

    Much noisier than previous visits due to small children - understood that it wasn’t very late, but definitely took away from the usual relaxed and intimate feel. Food was served extremely fast (less than 10 minutes from placing order) - which indicated it wasn’t freshly prepared. Nachos were cold when served. We were politely told 70 minutes into the sitting that we had half an hour left. Overall felt rushed in comparison to previous experiences.

    I love the Stella Cocktail. Staff & cleanliness is 💯 we did discuss that the meals were rather huge & difficult to eat off such big plates. My friend is allergic to chives/onions of which were garnished on all plates including fries so she couldn’t eat it. It didn’t state this on the menu. I however loved it but very very big portions. Everything else was superb! Well done

    The food was ok, the menu doesn't offer many options though (neother starters nor main courses). We order steaks but they were overcooked and the quality of the meat wasn't the best. For the price I expect much more than what I got. The staff are polote and attentive but they closed the kitchen without even offering us dessert when we finished the main course. Cocktails are great though.

    We made a last min booking on NYE for an early dinner. Food was lovely, but service for our mains was a little slow however this was compensated by our next drink offered to us on the house. Ambiance was lovely and will definitely be back.

    I saw great reviews about their drinks and food. I had the prawn bruschetta, and it was terrific. Then I had the duck salad. It was good, not excellent, but good enough. My partner had the burger and the regular fries. The fries were great, and the burger was not bad. I also ordered the patatas bravas, and it was not great. It was not crispy, and it was like a sup of sauce on the bottom. Now, let’s get into the drinks. I started with a sidecar. It was way too sour. I can see the intent to have a contrast with the nice sugar rim on the glass, but it wasn’t good. Then I asked for a sweet manhattan. That was way too sour, and I did not drink it. Then I tried a drink special from the menu called U-lah-lah. This was a punch of sugar in your face. It had all the potential to be great, but it was probably the sweetest drink I ever had. I had 2 sips and abandoned the rest. Then I tried a Mulled wine which took 15m to be prepared. It was Ok as the waiter told me that it would take longer to make. I would give it 2 stars. It wasn’t bad, but it was missing spices, and it was on the sour side. It tasted like something out of a bottle. I was disappointed overall. The place is fantastic, nice ambiance and great staff. Just needs to work on what they are there for!!!

    My husband and I went to the Cocktail Club for a couple of drinks - everything about this place is amazing! The atmosphere, the decor, the staff, very sophisticated. Don’t want to recommend as it means everyone will know about it! We didn’t have any food but I’m sure it was also good. The cocktails were delicious.

    Our waitress was lovely, and she make us very welcomed and provided a great service. We booked the cocktail bar 1 hour prior the start of our movie, the intention was to have 2 cocktails each. Unfortunately the bar got very busy and our second drinks took nearly 30 minutes to arrive, we ended up bringing it to the cinema with us. We also order a fair amount of food (through the cocktail bar), it was delicious, but unfortunately the desserts never arrived. It is unclear if it was never put through or kitchen forgot. When the guy delivered it to us, I mentioned the dessert but he never got back to us. Towards the end of the night after chatting to the staff, they refunded us for the desserts. A small chain of events that tainted the night a bit for us.

    Very disappointed this time around so much so I cancelled my booking for the following week. Felt rushed from the moment we arrived didn't even have time for a festive coffee or port. Food was freezing didn't send it back because we didn't have time to wait for it to be cooked fresh as our table was booked again within 30 minutes. I know you are giving a time slot when booking but this was my 6th time there & I have never been asked for the table back before. The staff as always were lovely both professional & friendly & I'm sorry to say they were the only good thing about our visit
