Davy Byrnes Bar

Never judge a book by its cover, the proverb suggests and this is especially true of a discrete facade just off Dublin’s Grafton Street that conceals the divine art deco Davy Byrnes pub. It’s a walloping surprise to walk in off the street and see the exquisite hand painted floral wooden and stained glass ceiling, black wall-hugging bench seats and booths, lily-like brass light fixtures and undulating bar servery faced with dozens of black dots that on close examination turn out to be the bottoms of champagne bottles. Gorgeous does not describe it.
