Much is made of the changeable weather in Ireland and how it’s so hard to plan for. One pub in Temple Bar has a solution to our on again off again sunshine/rain dynamic.
Bad Bobs in Temple Bar has a pretty cool rooftop area. It has undergone a refurb recently and, unlike other high rise bar areas in Dublin, it has a retractable roof.
The bar is available to book for parties year round. When it’s not booked out, is open to the public and is one of the best late night spots in the city, right in the heart of Temple Bar.
There’s a bar in the room, so there’s no need to be hopping downstairs for each round. They have a full bar menu, including possibly the hottest wings in Dublin. You can get platters for your group to nibble on while soaking up some sun (we hope). If the rain starts coming, out comes the roof cover and you can continue your night as usual. Handy.
