Named after the police who turned a blind eye to the liquor rooms of the 1920s prohibition era, The Blind Pig is the second Dublin speakeasy brought to us by Paul Lambert, one of the most respected bartenders in the city (see Upstairs at Kinara Kitchen). As befits a speakeasy the Pig's entrance is hidden - as is its address. Firstly visit and make a booking. You will then receive a confirmation email with the full address and vital instructions (even with the address it's a challenge to find). However, we can disclose access involves a dark bin strewed alleyway and a rickety staircase. Don't be put off, once inside you'll find two dimly rooms with delicious cocktails listed between the pages of old books.
