The Little Pig Speakeasy Dublin

The Little Pig Speakeasy Dublin

A reservation is necessary for this tiny bar not only to secure your space, but to obtain instructions for how to find the venue itself. And there are a lot of steps: a code, an alley, a sign, and a password. It was the most fun entrance we’ve had in a long time, and the nature of a true speakeasy!

This little hole in the wall is a dark rustic room on the lower level for walk ins reminiscent of a castle dungeon mixed with a knights of templar secret pub. While this level is plenty enjoyable for the drinks alone, to truly experience Peruke & Periwig you need to make a reservation to be seated upstairs.

Margot Speakeasy Belfast

Margot Speakeasy Belfast

Margot was an excellent start to our Emerald Isle tour, they were open for lunch and allowed us an early pop in to gain sustenance in the form of both alcohol and fantastic food. This bar does not offer typical pub fare – the menu was as culturally diverse as it was intricate.

5 London Speakeasies You Need To Visit

Late April 2022 we had the chance to stopover London for two nights and tried to hit a number of Speakeasies to add to the map.

Discount Suit Company (DSC)

Discount Suit Company (DSC)

Located in a shop that looks like an abandoned suit store from the 90s, this long-time speakeasy still had a lovely local feel without the tourist hoopla that typically comes with age and maintained a regular subterranean basement living room atmosphere.

A rather grungy drinking spot, the cocktails are nothing fancy but delicious, and chatting with the staff was the best part. DSC makes you feel relaxed, at home, and ready to return. We certainly wish we had a local bar like this near our home to frequent for the lovely community vibe.
