There's not much to add to the previous reviews of my fellow Qypers. The Sheeben has both improved the live shows and the food.
You'll find live music on almost every day of the week, and even when it's only the odd accoustic duo covering The Cure the quality of artists is exceptional, good booking on the side of the venue.
Foodwise they have now settled on a small menu with some daily specials, but both vegetarians and carnivores are catered for, and all dishes are made of homegrown Irish products and ingredients.
The only downside is that service can be slow on Fridays and Saturdays, so if you're planning to have a romatic dinner for two amongst third-hand-furniture you better go on a Sunday. If you are heading there for drinks only on the weekend the craig however is mighty.
The address says George's Street, but you can go in the back (like I do) from Dame Lane! It's hip and trendy; a place to hangout, have a few drinks and a meal. The decor includes dim lighting, ie. stick candles overflowing and dripping with wax, a collage of colourful pictures, comfortable couches, and an intimate bar. The food is delicious, in my opinion, and specializes in Irish traditions, such as boxty, stew, etc. The prices are reasonable - total for 2 was under 70 euro which included several pints, 2 main courses, and 2 deserts. Not only this but the atmosphere is funky and relaxed, and when you're finished you have a platter of options for pubs and clubs to head afterwards with Temple bar a few steps away.
Cool restaurant on George's Street. Everything recycled (cept the food of course)...second hand furniture, clothes hanging from the ceiling.
Food a bit salty, but if you can suffer that (in fact, food not brilliant at all) but it's the atmosphere you go for.
young and funky and reasonably priced
Wandered in just to get out of the cold, and i'm mighty glad i did, very cool quirky place, Lots of fun, seems to atract a nice crowd, will be going there again for sure..
