Great experience - service was excellent, with each course of food or wine served by a person who knew their work. Pairings were good - do yourself a favor and get the wine pairing. You’ll try wines you’ve never heard of that will become favorites. The venison was the best I’ve ever had - and totally unexpected. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

About the restaurant
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The Little Pig Speakeasy is for over 23s only. Please make certain to read your confirmation email carefully as it contains all the information on how to find us.




The Little Pig, under the genius of Patrick Thomas, is a truly sophisticated and opulent 1920s speakeasy. With a cocktail menu to die for, it is covered in opulent, rich red velvet upholstered walls with a rustic copper ceiling. Reminiscent of old school glamour, The Little Pig is plush and sexy, offering intimate seating for groups both large and small. Boasting some of the finest cocktails you’ll find in the city, you may find yourself transported back to 1920s high society. If you find yourself hungry while sipping on our Great Gatsby-inspired tipples, why not try some of our delicious New York-Italian dishes, all of which have been created to match our drinks.

Yves at Brother Hubbard Ranelagh (Evenings Only)

Brother Hubbard Ranelagh is delighted to host “Yves” – a delightful evening offering of light bites, sharing menus, wine and some cocktails – all with a French and Spanish twist! As well as offering our own delicious wines, we are excited to offer Bring Your Own/BYO for wine and beer (a corkage fee applies) – which is particularly excited as we are located next to Redmonds, one of the finest off-licences in Ireland. We are open Thursday, Friday & now Saturday evenings across the Autumn and Winter months. We offer a la carte dining as well as a special “Feast” sharing menu. We can cater for all main dietary requirements. Booking recommended.

About the restaurant
Happy's Bar & Street Food started out as a month long Pop Up Fried Chicken joint serving out of a hatch on Dorset Street in December of 2020. One or two pop ups afterwards led us to our first permanent location on Aston Quay.

Located just beside Temple Bar we found our permanent home. Fried Chicken is our thing, and always will be, but we needed to add to that. A cocktail menu of contempary cocktails with a Happy Endings twist, giant cocktail buckets, super crisp world beers and small plates inspired from Street Food dished around the world, Happy's Bar & Street Food was born.

With a very sustainable approach to design, all chairs and plates where sourced second hand, nothing matched. Unconventional, eccentric and unapologetic. The chaos was the charm really. Thats still the way today, but we love it.

Constantly eveolving, you wouldnt know what you might see next, come check us out.

Fantastic food. I’m sorry to hear they are closing down and more sorry to have introduced people to their food that they may never have the pleasure of experiencing again. Really hope they reopen again somewhere else.
