The Market Bar, Dublin

14A Fade Street
Ireland 2
Tel: 353 1 613 9094's insider take:

This former sausage factory adjoining the George's Street Arcade is a huge space, with a sky-lit interior, wooden floors, and lots of greenery. There's a mezzanine level with sofas and a second bar, as well as a heated beer garden (one of the best smokers' spots in Dublin) and an open kitchen that does tapas dishes like salted almonds and smoked trout salad in small and large sizes. It's a great spot for drinks and an inexpensive nibble, but it gets seriously busy after 6:30 pm, courtesy of the after-work crowd (that goes double on Fridays). The Market Bar boasts an unsurpassed ability to absorb crowds, but the results can be noisy; thankfully, there's no music to compete with conversation.
