Update - Sunday 8th February - The Bank on College Green Pub, Dame Street 1pm to 3pm

Sorry mistakes made - mixed up the Bank and the Bankers bar.

We want the following bar The Bank on College Green 1 - 3pm Sunday 8th

The Bank on College Green is a new Dublin bar based in the striking red sandstone building on, well, College Green.

The Bank on College Green is setting its stall out as a bar and pub primarily, but it also does lunch and restaurant food during the day.



Food info here too in case anyone gets hungry.
Its gourmet sandwiches like the Open Boston Prawn Sandwich on wholemeal bread with Avocado and Marie Rose sauce looks terrific and will cost you €8.50. Pasta courses like the Egg Tagliatelle with smoked chicken, roasted bell peppers, sweet thai chilies and pine kernels are very good indeed (€11.50) There's a good selection of main courses like the Thai Scented Green Curry of Chicken with coconut milk and basmati rice (€11.50) and the Roast Rack of Wicklow Lamb with Gratin Dauphinoise, Rosemary-scented jus and confit of garlic (€22).
Also, The Bank offers Dubliners another decent lunchtime meal option at the weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, they serve brunch until 5pm and the Mezzanine area is available for private hire.
The building is a beautifully restored specimen of Victorian commercial architecture designed in 1893 by William Henry Lynn when the site was turned into a branch of the Belfast Bank. Before that, the Great Britain Mutual Life Assurance Company traded there from 1876. Before that again, it was a Watch & Clock Manufacturer, a Department store (Reside & Co.) and originally Bigwoods Wool Emporium.
The Dublin bar was once the main banking hall and is a temple to money power with its stained glass ceiling (which fills the room with natural light), mosaic tiled floors and beautiful hand-carved plasterwork. The Bank on College Green,20-22 College Green,Dublin 2.


Given the ongoing cold snap we will continue with the indoor venues. For an interesting one architecturally and people wise we will be meeting in the Bank on College Green pub(coffee/teas available) on Dame Street for 1pm this Sunday the 8th. Looking forward to seeing some of you brave souls there.
