We’d like to think we’re still down with the kids, have our fingers on the pulse, are fashion forward, so when we learned that Dublin’s newest, hippest venue has been open a good 6 weeks already we were a little chagrined!

Peruke and Periwig, named apparently for the wig shop that first occupied the premises (31 Dawson Street) back in Victorian times, lives up to the hype.

Set over 3 floors including a bar, restaurant and cocktail lounge, it feels like it has always been there. It has an old-world feel without descending into tweeness and it’s cosy without feeling cluttered.

The cocktail menu is extensive and varied. The manager used to run the Exchequer and the influence shows.

We tried their take on a mojito, followed by some type of margarita and after that it all got a bit hazy. They offer a range of bar snacks and a full restaurant menu upstairs.

With open fires, velvet upholstery, chandeliers and bookshelves, this is a place where you could lose many an hour or day!

    Looks great, except this is undoubtedly going to turn into a Hipster Nest and be totally unbearable. I would therefore suggest changing the name to the Merkin Inn

    I’ve been in a couple of times… have been meaning to drop in for food but not made it yet. Certainly a cosy spot and always busy when I’ve been in!

  3. I’d like to have a pint there, if I ever get to Dublin this year…
