Why The Blind Pig?
During Prohibition, there were two types of drinking venues. The first was a ‘blind pig’, a venue where the lower class would dance to live music drinking beer or moonshine. The second venue was a ‘speakeasy’ which was a luxurious hidden venue for upper class citizens to drink high end alcohol like cocktails. From These two venues The Blind Peak Speakeasy came about.
Secretly tucked away in Dublin city centre, there is an underground cocktail bar known for the quality and artistry of its cocktails that truly evoke the mood of a 1920s speakeasy — The Blind Pig. The Blind Pig will tantalize the taste buds of cocktail lovers. Open daily from 6pm. Experience the forgotten thrill of secret passwords, false storefronts and just a touch of lawlessness. You have to keep it a secret. So shush!
Named after the police who turned a blind eye to the liquor rooms, The Blind Pig is a 1920’s styled underground cocktail bar in the heart of Dublin city. The Blind Pig started off in 2011 as a secret pop up speakeasy every month in a popular Dublin venue. Today they has it’s own permanent residence and is home to their very own cocktail bar and restaurant.
Since the Blind Pig was established it has developed a huge fanbase abroad as well as at home here in Ireland. The mystery of the experience is what appeals to customers most. Guest cannot find out the location of this secret venue until they have made a reservation. When you arrive at The Blind Pig you are directed to a secret door to gain access to the restaurant. Customer’s can chose to order cocktails or both cocktails and dinner depending on what they made their reservation for. The drinks served are classic cocktails with a modern twist such as an old fashioned. The Blind Pig opens at 6 pm every day and is open late Fridays and Saturdays with live music performers.
