Yesterday evening, Tapped on Nassau Street (with an entrance on Grafton Street) opened its doors to the public with a new, innovative concept on offer. There are over 50 taps behind its 15 metre long bar, serving basically every beverage you could want.
This stunning bar used to be Porterhouse Central but it’s since been renovated, undergoing quite the transformation. You’ll now find a super sleek, colourful interior with a mixture of seating arrangements from long tables with bar for bigger groups to comfy, cushioned seats reminiscent of an outdoor theatre.
The colossal concrete bar seats even more people, and it’s not just beer on offer here. Everything, from wine to pornstar martinis, is on tap. Unsurprisingly, Tapped has one of the highest number of drinks on tap of any bar in Ireland.
So, does it compromise the quality of cocktails, wines and the likes? Managing Director Elliot Hughes doesn’t think so! He says:
“Serving cocktails on tap eliminates an enormous amount of waste daily, but equally it saves the consumer so much time waiting for their drink. However, we do understand that initial impressions may be that cocktails on tap might not be of the same standard cocktail connoisseurs are used to. We are very confident this will not be the case here.”
It does seem like having everything on tap would speed up the process of making drinks and who doesn’t want speedy service at a bar? Plus, with 15 metres of bar to stand at we’d like to think that actually making yourself seen to be served will be easier.
Tapped serves beer not just from their own breweries but from other local and international breweries. Plus, organic wine, which we all know has become pretty trend these past few years.
Feeling hungry? Dublin Pizza Company are on hand at Tapped to bring you tasty pizza alongside LA style smash burgers, which are burgers made primarily from oil, ground beef and seasoning without things like egg or breadcrumbs. Ever omnivore should try one at least once!
You can book a table at Tapped on the website and it’s open from 12 noon until late on weekdays, then 11 am until late on weekends.
