This is not a drill: Conor McGregor AKA former featherweight MMA champion, is taking the reigns of his very own pub in Dublin. And, boy, does it pack a punch. A well-established Drimnagh boozer, Black Forge Inn has recently undergone a massive €1 million renovation and been kitted out with low lighting, a central marble-topped bar, decorative artwork and numerous nooks to nestle in. Sports fans are also accounted for, with screens showing all the latest fixtures dotted around the icon's former stomping ground.

But it's not just serving a KO in the looks department. Alongside McGregor's own-brand Proper No. Twelve Whiskey, on-tap Guinness and various wines, Black Forge Inn also offers a range of world-class cocktails, specially crafted using the finest spirits from around the globe. While the drinks are international, the food is kept closer to home, with the kitchen sourcing all its meat and produce from local suppliers.
