The Octagon Bar in Dublin 2 is at the heart of The Clarence, a beautiful room situated in the exact same space as the original hotel bar. With an octagon shaped dome rising high above the central bar. It is the perfect setting for a glamorous gathering of friends over cocktails or pre match pints with mates.

The Back Bar boasts many original features including the stunning Art Deco floor and windows, and the original hotel clock that sits proudly over the open fireplace. A wonderful retreat on a cold day, the fireside seats are the most coveted part of the Back Bar in Autumn and Winter. Relax with a fine whiskey and a classic book and while the day away in comfort and peace. The original snug is also intact, an intimate and cosy space for a tete-a-tete over champagne or a good old fashioned argument over brandies!

A delicious bar food menu designed by the chefs at Cleaver East is available in The Octagon Bar daily from 12pm to 8pm.
