Riot may technically be a dive bar, but it's got all the vibes of a quirky club in Dublin. From the neon lights to the graffiti-strewn walls and regular live music nights, you won't be leaving early here. Think arcade games, pool and late night revellers.

Bad Bobs

Located in the iconic Temple Bar area, Bad Bobs is jam-packed with vintage memorabilia, craft cocktails and an impressive selection of whiskey. Irish Coffee is taken seriously here, so grab one and head to the stunning roof terrace before hitting the nightclub.


From end-of-the-week throwdowns at Pyg Sundays to wild weekenders at Pygfest, nothing beats a late night at this restaurant-turned nightclub. Make your way to Powerscourt Townhouse for 18th century splendour contrasts with modern hits and a youthful crowd.


One of the best clubs Dublin has to offer, Opium is a three-storey venue with a restaurant, cocktail bar and nightclub all under one roof. Indulge in dishes from from Thailand, Japan and Vietnam alongside a range of cocktails before getting down to banging beats till the wee hours.


The interior isn't the only eye-catching this about this Harcourt Street spot, you know. One of the best sports bars in Dublin, Dtwo features a backyard BBQ, all-weather beer garden and Instagrammable bar and club with space to up to 400.
