It’s the latest venue to spring up in Cork’s Victorian Quarter.
A brand new cocktail bar opened its doors for the very first time yesterday evening on MacCurtain Street, and it looks absolutely stunning.
Co-owned by Andy Ferreira of Cask cocktail bar (located jut down the street), Paladar is a Latin American-inspired venue and promises to deliver a vibrant mix of art, music, and authentic Cuban hospitality.
Formerly known as Bridge Bar, Paladar underwent an extensive makeover, complete with custom-built planters hanging from the ceiling, gorgeous encaustic tiled floors, stylish bar stools and exposed brick walls. The venue also now has the capacity to hold up to 65 guests.
The cocktail menu at Paladar was designed by Andy Ferreira and his team, and features an vibrant mix of rum and Mezcal-based classics, along with some seriously delicious house creations such as the ‘Plantation Café Swizzle’, which comes with Plantation 5 Year rum, coconut cream and coffee.
The food menu offers a mix of snacks and small sharing plates, and includes items like deep friend empanadas, Nuestra guacamole, smoked beef skewers and tacos. If you’re Craving something sweet, they also have a Pina colada dessert along with a banana tart.
Fancy delving into the vibrance and culture of Latin America? Paladar is now open from 5pm daily at 6 Bride Street, just off MacCurtain Street, and reservations can be made via their website.
