Housed in the same building as RiRa nightclub, the Globe just about straddles the line between cool and too cool. A big favourite in Dublin, especially among musicians and music fans, it boasts good tunes and a cosy atmosphere. Sitting at the bar is nice, but if you’re really lucky, you might land one of the big tables beside its even bigger windows. It’s really vibrant on weekends with funky clientele, but it’s also a good spot for a quiet drink earlier in the week. On weeknights entry to RiRá is free, but weekend nights are run by independent promoters who apply a cover charge.
