This is a fab location if you are going to Bord Gais theatre and you want to have an informal sit down meal in the lobby of the hotel which is both luxurious and comfy with many different types of seating to suit your needs. The waiting staff are pure 5 star level, so it makes for a very nice experience. The kitchen closes at 10pm so we just got in there after our theatre around that time and my husband was ravenous so they allowed him to have something and I saw them do it for about another 2-3 tables after us that came in so I like this kind of flexibility. Having said that in line with the times that the shows finish in Bord Gais they could probably do with opening this until at least 11pm or so as I think they would still have a steady flow as lots of people coming and going still at that time we were there. Of course being 5 star, the prices are extortionate, I actually can't believe they have a cocktail menu that costs as it does in the current climate averaging from 13.50 to 20.00 and they are possibly the smallest cocktails I have ever seen in my life. Unless you are loaded you actually wouldn't be able to have many rounds of drinks and you can see a lot of people come in for one and are gone which again is something they need to look a, as if they were more reasonably priced I think people could afford to stay there longer but again of course they are looking for a certain type of clientele and therefore missing out on a whole pool of people who are coming from the theatre but don't want to spend that type of money after paying such high prices already for their tickets, excellent location of course and we didn't get the chance to experience the rooftop bar as it is only open Fridays and Saturdays or something like that.
