There's nothing I love more than getting ready to go out.
Sometimes, that's the best part of the night.
Having the tunes playing, putting your makeup on and watching yourself transform into a different version of yourself. Unfortunately, we don't always get the chance to get glammed up as often as we'd like.
After-work drinks usually take place in the nearest local, in whatever clothes you managed to throw on yourself that morning.
But there are a few places that absolutely require you to get all dolled up:
This little spot on Leeson Street is home to one of the best mojitos I've ever tried. With seriously swish surroundings, it calls for your best heels.
2. Mint Bar
Located underneath the uber fancy Westin Hotel, the Mint Bar is set in an actual bank vault. With good cocktails and a nice food selection too, you're winning.
3. Peruke & Periwig
You can find the ultimate cocktail experience at Peruke & Periwig, which calls for the ultimate outfit. These guys have been around for yonks, and really know their stuff.
