East Side Tavern on the corner of Leeson Street and Stephen’s Green have made a statement on facebook that they are closing permanently.
The bar was owned by the Mercantile Group. Not much detail was given on the post, other than to say this
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that East Side Tavern is permanently closed. Thank you to all our customers, regulars and staff for the good times and good beers. We’ll miss ya!
Inside the bar was quite elegant, and boasted a very impressive spirits selection, displayed in a cascade of bottles.
That leaves Hartigan’s as the only pub on that end of Leeson Street, a busy area for office workers. There are renovations planned at several other Mercantile Group bars, but there’s no word as to whether they will be creating something new in this location.
