The Drury Buildings—located on Drury Street, on the cusp of buzzy Fade Street—are covered in a bright, can’t-look-away mural painted by international urban artists Okuda and Remed. Drinks and light tapas downstairs with proper dining upstairs, this multifaceted space is one of the few places in Dublin with a winter-proof patio area—the exposed brick and tiled floor belong to actual rooms, with the roof removed. The setting is undeniably pretty and the drinks are great; settling in under the heaters for a bottle of wine and a cheeseboard is the way to go. The gin and tonics are a must-try, especially ones made with Gunpowder—Ireland’s new, deeply complex gin made in a small town in the rural west and paired deliciously with grapefruit and cinnamon.
