About the restaurant
Saba (meaning happy meeting place) is a Thai and Vietnamese eatery and cocktail bar. It is located at 22 Upper Baggot Street in Dublin 4 on the banks of the Grand canal beside the Aviva and RDS Stadium. It is situated on a beautiful Victorian street with lots of interesting shops, cafes, restaurants and many of Dublin’s most famous historic pubs.

Don’t worry about the weather, in our Secret Garden, we have you covered rain or shine. Join us for outdoor dining underneath one of our canopies. We also have heaters for when it gets a bit chilly. It’s a funky space with beautiful Italian furniture, blended with some traditional church pews, festoon lighting and stunning graffiti artwork by Subset.

Our kitchen is open from noon until late seven days a week, so whether you fancy a light lunch, dinner with wine, cocktails or weekend brunch, we are the perfect venue. Takeaway is available from all Saba locations.

We went to Saba with 11 colleagues for a team lunch. We all had wonderful food and were very well fed when we left. We were made very welcome and the staff were very kind. Thank you for a great afternoon

Best bottomless brunch I've ever been to. You're never without a drink in your hand, the staff are so nice and attentive. Everything about this place is amazing, the food, the music and the staff. We had the best day celebrating our friends engagement and I will 1000% to back here.

About the restaurant
The Jewel of the South-Side. A NOLA inspired Bar & Eatery, fusing the vibrancy, craic and soul of Southern & Irish Hospitality. Perfect for any KREWE gathering. As they would say in New Orleans, 'Pass a Good Time' in our venue and soak up the atmosphere. Our Menu, created after a fun filled trip to New Orleans, takes inspiration from the flavour of Cajun Creole Cuisine while locally sourcing ingredients. So Round up your Krewe and 'Laissez les bon temps rouler'. Let the good times roll!

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.

Our Cocktail bar & Rooftop terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy exciting cocktails and take in the fantastic views. It's an ideal place to have pre or post-dinner drinks or enjoy late-night drinks with funky tunes.

About the restaurant
So what’s our story? We wanted to bring the finest BBQ to Dublin, and to open up a place that was like nothing else in Ireland. Sitting right on Wellington Quay, in the heart of Dublin, Bison is a slice of BBQ heaven. Sidle up to our bar, saddle up on our seats and get comfortable in Bison Bar & BBQ, Dublin’s first and best BBQ joint.

Food was very tasty - we over ordered, but everything was very good! Chicken wings with alabama sauce were especially good!
