The Workmans Club

A venue with many faces, The Workmans Club is perfect for those who can't make up their mind for their birthday, or just want a bit of everything. Cool cocktails? Right here. An eclectic choice of comedy, live music, and arts events? You got it.


This Brooklyn-inspired dive bar likes to play hard, serving cocktails that don't shy away from the booze and delicious American eats. To add to the birthday partying? Keep an eye out for their regular host of live music nights and DJs, as well as the arcade games and pool table. 


Have your cake and eat it at this all-rounder on Wexford Street. Keep it casual with a meal in Opium's Pan-Asian restaurant, dance the night away in the club, or stick to cocktails on the rooftop terrace. If you're planning a proper party, there's private hire spaces to book too.

Bad Bobs

Bad Bobs is a multi-storey party palace with areas devoted to eating, drinking and partying all under one roof on Essex Street East. From building your own burgers to sipping cocktails and busting shapes on the dancefloor, this is one epic birthday destination.


If birthdays don't do much for ya? P.Mac's is the kind of cool hangout where you don't have to make a fuss. Known for their epic selection of craft beer, the space is perfect for a chilled pint and a board game or two with a group of mates in chilled-out surroundings.

Buskers On The Ball

Ping pong, pool and beer aplenty is all you need for a fun birthday in Dublin, and luckily, Buskers on the Ball has it in abundance. The party bar is great for larger groups, with a happy choice of American bites and games such as foosball, shuffle board and more.
