DUBLINERS spotted an unusual vehicle out and about in the centre streets over the past week or so – an ‘overgrown’ bus trundling about, helping to promote the opening of a long-awaited new restaurant at Dawson Street – The Ivy.
The Ivy Dawson Street is the first international brasserie from The Ivy Collection, and is located in the heart of the capital at a new landmark building, One Molesworth.
The bus took in several landmarks all around town, helping to promote the upcoming opening on Tuesday, July 24, and to announce the opening of its reservation line.
The brasserie-style restaurant and bar will accommodate up to 200 guests and feature an all-encompassing menu complete with breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light snacks and dinner, incorporating a selection of classics including shepherd’s pie, crispy duck salad, alongside a selection of locally inspired dishes such as Dungarvan oysters.
Tantalising cocktails will be available to enjoy in the restaurant or at the brasserie’s striking central onyx bar, which will also be serving Irish staples such as Guinness and a selection of Irish whiskeys.
The Ivy Dawson Street’s artwork has been carefully curated, featuring a colourful mixture of old and new with pieces include topographical prints and plans of Dublin and Dublin Bay from 1850, as well as artwork inspired by Ireland and Dublin, and pieces depicting music, Trinity College, horse racing and brewing.
