A new Christmas bar is opening in Dublin for the month of December. The Christmas Cocktail Club opens today in the basement of Berlin Cafe & Bar D2.

Award-winning cocktail bartender Alan McGillivray will be leading the project for the month. Alan recently returned to Dublin from New York City where he worked in two of the best cocktail bars in the world – The Dead Rabbit and BlackTail.

Alan and his team will be serving traditional festive drinks such as Nog’s, Mulled Wine, Hot Apple Cider and many more. What better way to start the festive season than to be sipping on some delicious hot port while listening to The Pogues playing Fairytale of New York?

The Christmas themed bar is located in the basement of Berlin Cafe & Bar on Dame lane, open from 5 pm Thursday to Sunday.
