A Victorian House fitted out with five vibrant floors, Bad Bobs is your one-stop-shop for eating, drinking and partying on Essex Street East.

The Ground Floor plays host to the Snug Bar, where guests tuck into ‘build-your-own’ burgers and enjoy their first drink of the evening. With a capacity of 400 and live acoustic sessions each day, the buoyant atmosphere sets the tone for what is to follow upstairs.

Bad Bobs’ nightclub area comes spread across the first and second floors. It’s here that you’ll find well-heeled revelers unwinding with classic cocktails (€6), with more live music and DJs sets to look forward to later in the evening. With a thorough and diverse spirit menu, Bad Bobs is definitely a haven for the whiskey aficionado.

The venue also boasts a plush VIP lounge area, as well as a large rooftop terrace for those looking to chill out in open-aired surrounds, and the venue’s late licence (until 2.30am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday) offers a fun-loving, unpretentious vibe for those looking to party long and hard.
