The South William, Dublin

52 South William Street
Ireland 2
Tel: 353 1 672 5946's insider take:

Drop in to the South William by day, and you're treated to an eclectic pad serving nine kinds of delicious pies (bacon and cabbage, chicken and leek, venison with cranberry). By night, bar stools are removed to facilitate growing crowds; tables and chairs are whisked away to reveal a dance floor. By the time you've clocked the fact that the venue has three floors, it's already too late. The barmen are shaking cocktails, the hipsters holding court, and the smoking area is a study in congestion. "Let's all just session through the recession" is the choice quote from its Web site.—Pól Ó Conghaile
