Bow Lane is an authentic, late night cocktail bar that appeals to a cross section of Dublin society from the gritty underclass of sophisticates to creatives and the party set. Bow Lane has areas that satisfy a want for exclusivity and other areas that create a space for typical Dublin social intercourse. Our focus is on providing craft-made quality cocktails, unique and mainline beers and spirits along-side value menus of modern Irish dishes in the bar and the restaurant. Bow Lane is open every night until very late with class DJ’s playing cool tracks. Bow Lane does “sophistication in a gritty location” so come on in to “Socialise, Imbibe, Eat”.

Bank Holiday weekend spent Sunday afternoon here at our favourite table with a clatter of friends. Had the ‘The Spinicali’ Mexican which was delicious and filling. Love the range of IPA's on tap. I keep coming back here.

If your considering this venue, do yourself a favour and go!! The food is absolutely amazing. I ate here on Sunday evening, there was a good atmosphere and great music in the background. I got the tuna sashimi to start, the variety of textures and flavours on the plate was stunning, they worked incredibly well together. Id the the venison for main, and I'd highly recommend it, it was the tastiest venison I've had anywhere! For desert I tried the Chocolate Pave and again, sumptious! The ice cream served with it is stunning also!! Presentation of each dish was beautiful.. I'd highly recommend a visit to Bow Lane. Well worth it!

Ate with my dinner club. A most enjoyable evening was had by all. The guy who served us was excellent. Foodwise there were no gripes amongst the group with the regards the wide choice of well presented highly tasty food. Would recommend for both groups and couples alike.

We ate there as a group for brunch. We were seated at a window table and then were asked to move as they had made a mistake with the booking - that was fine and we didn't object. The service was generally good and the staff were pleasant; however, the food was bland and one dish was barely edible. I spoke to the manager who responded very poorly. We would not return.

One of the most disappointing eating experiences I have had recently. Ordered the fried chicken 'birdwich', which was very basic and underwhelming not to mention the fact that for some reason it came without any of the trimmings mentioned in the menu, no jalepeno slaw or swiss cheese? Very overpriced for what it was and overall wouldn't leave me with a sense of wanting to return.

Great place for brunch - went here Sunday couple of weeks ago- no booking so had a bit of a wait at the bar but all the better given the DELICIOUS bloody marys they serve here (who doesn't love the addition of bacon to a cocktail)...anyway, table for 4 was less of a wait than we had been advised (was on bloody mary number 2) and between us we ordered eggs benedict, lumberjack breakfast, birdwich and the korean bbq beef - have to say the Korean beef won the brunch competition, although the birdwich was excellent and despite my own personal dislike of venison, the lumberjack was very well received by my dining companion - nothing wrong with the eggs benedict either..just the other dishes were stand out.. excellent value for money - really friendly staff and hopefully will be back - I personally despise pre-meditated brunch (it's supposed to be off the cuff no??) but you're probably better off make a booking here if you want a guaranteed spot as I can see it going the way of the whitefriar next door in terms of popularity

I went here at the weekend with friends and I think it has the perfect atmosphere for a catch up with friends. The music is the right volume, the staff and doorman are lovely. They forgot to put on my friends burger but when they did bring it out, they didn't charge him so all was fine in the end. I can foresee myself going back here time and time again with friends. Cocktails are wonderful!
