Dice Bar, Dublin

79 Queen Street

Tel: 353 1 633 3936's insider take:

Who knows where the name came from—is it because the Smithfield neighborhood can be a little dicey? At this small, dark bar with blacker-than-black walls, red strip lighting, and some of the most eclectic music in town—DJs spin anything from blues and soul to country, indie, and more—you're as likely to see a Harley as a Vespa parked outside. The inside is crammed with candles, uncollected empties, and bathrooms the size of phone booths. The feel is underground (do the bar staff look like the Ramones, or do the Ramones look like the bar staff?), and the clientele regularly spills onto the streets outside. Loved by its easygoing crowd, Dice Bar also sells excellent European microbeers.
