Zozimus bar is named in honour of Michael Moran (aka Zozimus), the blind balladeer and poet who in the early 19th century entertained his public in the streets of Dublin. He began each oration with the verse:
Ye sons and daughters of Erin,
Gather round poor Zozimus, yer friend;
Listen boys, until yez hear
My charming song so dear.
William butler Yeats wrote of Michael Moran “Nor despite his blindness did he find any difficulty in getting a wife, but rather was able to pick and choose, for he was just that mixture of ragamuffin and of genius which is dear to the heart of woman”.
Zozimus bar aims to bring the stories and tales into contempary Ireland through the experience they provide in every taste of their cocktails and food served.
The Zozimus bar menu features an expansive collection of small-batch spirits, a universal wine offering and a selection of classic and modern cocktails that highlight market fresh ingredients. Signature sips include refined twists on classic cocktails inspired by the bards of Ireland, developed by their creative mixology team.
Designed by an internationally acclaimed design house, the space recreates an elegant ambiance with indoor and outdoor areas displayed through the use of hand crafted wooden structures, juxtaposed with elaborate glass structures, free hanging lights, and contemporary wooden furniture.
