It’s a bit of a trek from the city centre, but that doesn’t seem to put the crowds off. Smithfield has got good drinking heritage with the Jameson Distillery around the corner and the Guinness factory over the road, so it’s no wonder this venue has been a bar since 1790.
The party was in full swing when BarChick rocked up late on a Friday, sadly the band had already packed up but they obviously did something right. The music was blaring and the crowd were swigging as they danced. The long bar is thick with beer taps, and the back bar is littered with spirits amongst a red glow and fairy lights, but none of the bottles got BarChick overly excited. They usually have about two cocktails on offer, we had a Salty Dog, with rum, ginger beer, Angostura bitters and fresh lime, it was good but best keep it simple in here with pints and mixers. Who cares, you don’t come here to cocktail.
The vibe is electric, and you can tell that these four walls have seen their fair share of mayhem. Sink into a leather booth, make smoking friends outside or dance where ever there’s space. Dice Bar, you’re a double six in our eyes.Apparently Huey from The Fun Loving Criminals is an investor. Laid back, good music and great beers.
