This is one serious tequila cantina with margaritas to suit all tastes and an accompanying all Mexican menu from guacamole to pigs head carnitas. 777 also boasts "Dublin's largest premium tequila selection of 100% blue agave tequila."
777's website also describes its atmosphere as "energetic" and we're guessing they are referring to base bins that shake every bone in your body. No softly playing background jazz here.
White factory and black granite tiled walls with a distressed cream and black pressed tin ceiling and an orange Formica bar counter which is scarily reminiscent of school tables. Dinner style plastic bench seats and tables run up the wall opposite.
A double slushy machine and margaritas lead the tequila and mezcal dominated cocktail menu.
