9 Below Bar can be found located in the heart of central Dublin. Found in a series of basements, this bar is possibly our finest discovery in Dublin to date. You can expect elegance in abundance here, with the interiors being finished to a very high standard and each room offering a different setting. The staff are welcoming and have a lot of passion for the work they do and the place they work in. The cocktails here really are a craft, with the bar staff clearly understanding how to make incredible concoctions that are not only visually impressive, but taste just as beautiful.

When we arrived we were welcomed by a smiling member of the team as we chose our table. For our first round of drinks, I opted the On The Ground cocktail that saw Tanqueray No. TEN gin mixed with Green Chartreuse and sweet pea. This was an unusual combination, but a highly welcomed one; it was truly delicious and refreshing. My partner chose The Red Head, which saw Redbreast 12yr whisky with Kings Ginger Liqueur, Falermum, lime sherbet and Perrier Jouet Champagne. This sparking cocktail was beautifully innovative with the lime sherbet adding a different layer of fizz.

“We will certainly be returning to sample the rest of their cocktails.”

Up next, I chose a New Beginnings, which saw Beefeater 24 Gin with Fine Sherry, Aperol and lemon Sherbet. This fruity cocktail really hit the spot with just the right balance of sweet and bitter with the Aperol aftertaste. My partner went for the Gogarty’s, which was a blend of Bulleit Rye Whisky, Hennessy VSOP, Green Chartreuse, dark cacao, mint and soda.

Finally, I chose a Negroni, which was mixed with No. 209 Gin, house sweet vermouth and Campari and my partner went for the Skye Fall - Talisker 10yr whisky, Ron Zacapa 23, Falermum, pineapple, ginger extract and soda. Both of these cocktails were beautifully presented and offered a wonderful end to our evening at 9 Below.

If you’re in Dublin and cocktails are your thing, then 9 Below should definitely be visited. We will certainly be returning to sample the rest of their cocktails!
