This Inner City Cocktail Bar And Restaurant Serve Some Of Dublin’s Best Pasta

Alana Laverty

We’ve basically lived in Drury Buildings for the whole summer, we’re ashamed to admit. 

As much as we love trying new places and switching things up – it’s just such a great fail-safe option, especially when the sun shines. 

A relaxed and beautiful setting with great drinks and even better atmosphere – it pleases every single time. 

But what most people don’t know is that Drury Buildings is also home to some of the best food in the city. 

Sure, their downstairs tapas-style Italian cicchetti menu is fab, but it’s the upstairs restaurant menu that is the true winner here and we bet you never even knew…

The restaurant is packed with New York and Berlin vibes and design with brilliant drinks and stellar Italian-inspired food. 

Head chef Warren Massey is a culinary force to be reckoned with, and each dish proves that time and time again. 

For me, the pasta is absolute perfection. 

Fresh pasta with carefully chosen ingredients that make for a treat time and time again. 

You can choose from small or large, which is handy depending on your hunger levels. 

Our fave pasta dishes include the “Guanciale Di Montagna”, Calamarata Pasta, Cured Italian Pork Cheek with Pecorino Romano cheese and the black truffle pappardelle with truffle Peorino cheese. Prices from €12.50.

If you can try get the upstairs outdoor seating, super private and intimate with a view over the whole downstairs and sneaky peek through the kitchen window. 

You can find Drury Buildings at 55 Drury Street in Dublin 2.
