ELY BAR & GRILL is part of the 200-year-old tobacco and wine warehouse that is the CHQ building. Today, the building today offers sleek and modern comforts, while the original stonework structure of the building ads an integral and historic feel.

We are a multi award winning establishment with an impressive corporate client list regularly hosting a number of hospitality events for companies and associations. We are also the only top-quality large bar and restaurant in the IFSC, Dublin 1 area. We also feature our main vaulted dining room serving lunch and dinner. It truly is the perfect location for groups both small and large.

You are always spoiled for choice at ELY BAR & GRILL where we have two bars. Our Cellar Bar is downstairs within the original historical vaults built in 1821 with all your usual favourites, craft beers, excellent cocktails and, of course, an endless supply of brilliant wines. Just as popular is our Atrium Bar. The Atrium bar leads out to our beautiful waterside terrace – perfect on those bright sunny days, with an amazing selection of beers on tap, signature cocktails, with all your classics available on request, plus signature Gin & Tonic serves! Both bars offer the perfect selection of Irish whiskey, gins, cognacs and other spirits with a multi award winning wine-list to boot!

ELY WINE BAR on 22, Ely Place is where it all began in 1999.

The original instigators of wine by the glass in Ireland, ELY WINE BAR on 22 Ely Place is the iconic wine bar with a history of real food provenance. Taking just 21 days, ELY WINE BAR had recently undergone a complete refurbishment. New Menus have been carefully crafted by Executive Chef, Ryan Stringer, playing on the growing popularity of sharing plates.
