Bison Bar and BBQ in Dublin has been slowly growing and expanding since it began as a quieter, more civilized annex to the sprawling Workman’s Club that has been slowly expanding along Wellington Quay as the years go by. In recent months, however, it has begun defining its style and offerings, and as a result is garnering a following in its own right.
Inside, you’ll feel as if you’re stepping into a hunting lodge/saloon with animal heads mounted on the walls and saddle seats propping up those at the bar. The newest addition, an authentic Texan-style BBQ menu that offers simple trays of slow-cooked meat and sides, only helps to transport you across the pond.
For those simply looking to water, however, the jewel in the Bison’s crown is its whiskey menu. With 150 bottles of the stuff to choose from, you can try a tipple of everything from Scotch to Japanese whiskeys. For those who prefer to wet their whistle with tequila, there are over 30 varieties to choose from. And for those who wince at the taste of undiluted spirits, the whiskey sours come in at a very reasonable €5.
Come to the Bison Bar for a feed, a chat and a good tipple, and then find yourself stumbling next door to dance the night away in the Workman’s.
