Take a step back in time at The Rag Trader, located on Drury Street - which was previously known as a popular rag trade district. The venue plays homage to its background, with textile trinkets used throughout the decor. The quaint bar boasts an extensive whiskey offering, featuring over 100 whiskeys on its shelves - as well as stout, craft beer and signature cocktails. 

Stay and enjoy a meal, with food served from its sister venue, Dakota Bar.

The Rag Trader is known for its warm and cosy atmosphere, with two fireplaces and ambient lighting to set a welcoming tone throughout the space. There are several seating areas available for larger group bookings, including the back bar snug and The Parlour Room located at the front of the venue, for a semi-private experience.

Live trad Irish music every Wednesday and Thursday evening from 8pm onwards, with late bar until 2.30am on Friday and Saturday nights.
