The Blind Pig
Secretly tucked away in Dublin city centre, there is an underground cocktail bar known for the quality and artistry of its cocktails that truly evoke the mood of a 1920s speakeasy — The Blind Pig, an underground venue that will tantalize the taste buds of cocktail lovers everywhere. We serve Prohibition cocktails coupled with delicious New York Italian food six days a week. Open from 6pm Sunday-Thursday and 5pm on Friday and Saturday. Experience the forgotten thrill of secret passwords, false storefronts and just a touch of lawlessness. But you have to keep it a secret. So shush!
The waiter said it wasn't a restaurant even though it was. They kept burning cheap incense inside a cellar without proper ventilation which was crazy. Very average food, the place seems more of a gimmick than a actual restaurant. There was nice live music playing. There are three different restaurants in the same building all owned by the same person and they serve the food out of the same kitchen. Seems a little off.
Delicious meal with excellent drinks in a very atmospheric setting!
All was ok, starters and deserts were nice. Main course pasta and gnocchi dishes were nice. 3 of us had sea food platter, and was just tasteless, over cooked fish and prawns, rubbery squid, no seasoning. This could definitely could be improved.
This place is AMAZING!! If you’re ever in Ireland, make it a point to visit and ask a for Andrew. He’s an amazing bartender :)
Very nice restaurant at an unexpected place. You need to go into an other restaurant to come here.
The food was really delicious; it was fresh and cooked perfect.
overpriced for average fare; lack of wine selection also not great and no value at all on the wine
Poor quality of food and very limited winelist. Not comfotable either i get what rheyre trying to do but very disappointed.
Wonderful experience. The live music from Joanne Marie Burke was spectacular. A great hidden gem.
Unique experience - really enjoyed the atmosphere.
However very expensive cocktails that simply do not live up to their price tag.
A €13/14 cocktail should be served in something better than what would appear to be a cheap wine glass with no garnish.
Great vibe, fab ambience, cocktails delicious and food hearty. Don’t miss it!
Booked for my boyfriends birthday and the food and drinks were fab, then they even surprised us with a candle in the dessert which was a nice touch.
Had a lovely evening and great food
The staff where very friendly
cocktails are better at other places. The secret door was cool - but the food was just piazza and stuff and the cocktails were just OK
I loved it at first. The concept is great and it was well designed. Food was really good and very decent cocktails. But we went there for a celebration and although the lady waitress was delightful, the other guy was a real buzz kill. He just seemed really unhappy in his work. Eventually we left and went to another bar where the staff were more fun
Food was beautiful, ambiance was great but the service was very poor. The waitress was straight up rude. Pity because everything else was fab!
We were in Dublin last week, and went to Blind Pig, we had a great time! Our server Rodrigo was awesome and Federico the mixologist created some tasty drinks, our favor was Bon Bon. We will definitely tell our friends about this restaurant. We went for dinner and drinks on Wednesday and came back for drinks on Thursday, February 7, 2019.
Loved our evening at the Blind Pig! From the moment we booked and got the secret code to get in to the underground speakeasy, through to the food and cocktails we loved all of it. Staff were really knowledgable and friendly, the musician that was in was perfect for the atmosphere, the food was delicious and the cocktails were potent! Highly recommend.
Great place for a quirky night out, loved the whole idea of how it is set up, food was excellent, service excellent, would definitely recommend.
Really cool resteraunt. I like the way you have to push a button for the secret door to open. Really good cocktails. It’s a little pricey for Italian food but would recommend it.
Our group of 12 had a lovely meal here. For starters, we had grilled veggies, charcuterie and burrata mozarella, and my main was the pumpkin tortelloni. While it is not the best Italian food in Dublin, it was yummy and nicely presented. The Blind Pig is particularly great for its ambiance: a cosy cellar-like space, with flapper-era music and intimate lighting. We asked for a custom, surprise cocktail and we got a wonderful gin-based concoction. The service was very polite.
Really enjoyed our meal here on Saturday evening. Great athmosphere!
We had a lovely experience celebrating our anniversary in the Blind Pig. Such a cool concept with the hidden location, the ambiance was so pleasant and the staff were relaxed and friendly. Food was delish and the cocktails were unreal. Cant really ask for more! Looking forward to our next visit!
Really tasty food , lovely ambiance however there was some live music and as we were right beside it it was too loud for us and difficult to chat, too much for 7pm in the evening i thought, otherwise was great
Beautiful, romantic quiet restaurant tucked into the streets of Dublin. Wonderful date spot!
Entry into The Blind Pig was unusual but fun. The only downfall was the smell of incense on arrival.
Really enjoyable, food delicious.
Interesting hideaway restaurant that specializes in cutom cocktails. The speakeasy theme is neat but not really played up once you're there. A great place to go for dinner, once. PS. A reservation is a must and they only allow 2 hours max per seating so don't expect to hang out real long.
Food very average... service excellent... ambiance cosy ...
Amazing cocktails, great food, and very attentive staff
Great service, lovely setting and good vegetarian options
The only negative thing the winelist is very poor and the prices are too high
I am came with a party of 4 and we enjoyed our time. I ordered the pumpkin tortellini it was so yummy glad I got it would definitely eat here again.
Amazing this place , music and food the best
Wonderful pre-theatre meal and cocktails. We had main courses, deserts, and cocktails. All yummy and a wonderful ambiance!
Lovely cosy atmosphere, great food and service. Only gripe was it was really hard to see the menu and what was on the plate because it was so dark!
I had a thoroughly enjoying dining experience at the Blind Pig and I will be sure to recommend and come back. Thank you for a great evening.
Different dining experience. Highly enjoyable. Good food and staff very friendly & knowledgable!
Absolutely delighted to have been able to book a table for six at rather short notice. We were in Dublin celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. A friend had told him about The Blind Pig, but we never dreamt we would be able to get in for a meal. What a gem. Quirky and delightful, with lovely staff and an excellent menu. The cocktails were magnificent! A truly memorable evening, which finished off my husband's special day to perfection.
What a great find! It's an authentic speakeasy! Unfortunately a large (noisy) group moved in beside us which was irritating. The staff did try to quiet them, as they try to stay true to the "speakeasy" hidden atmosphere. If not for that group, I would have said 5 star!
4-star all the way; from cuisine to customer service. The Hidden Pig is a hidden gem...literally. Don't get discouraged when your direction ap says, "You've arrived at your destination" and you can't find the restaurant sign. Enter the street level restaurant and go down the stairs to the cellar. Not everything in Ireland is as it seems. You won't be disappointed!
