During Prohibition, there were two types of venues where you could get a drink: a ‘blind pig’ or ‘blind tiger’ was a venue that catered more to the lower class with dancing and live music, serving beer and poorly-made moonshine — sometimes even produced on the premises itself.
The second type of venue was a speakeasy which was a luxurious hidden venue aimed at the upper class, where the finest alcohol was acquired and talented bartenders were brought in to mix delicious cocktails for famous movie stars and politicians of the day.
The Little Pig, hidden away in the heart of Dublin city, is a nod to these beautiful rooms of years past with plush décor, fine wines, and the highest quality spirits. The sister bar to The Blind Pig, the brainchild from award-winning bartender Paul Lambert, it is a truly sophisticated and opulent 1920s speakeasy.
Covered in rich red velvet upholstered walls with a copper ceiling, it has a bar reminiscent of truly old school glamour.
The Little Pig is plush and warm, offering intimate seating for groups both large and small. Boasting some of the finest martinis you’ll ever taste, it also has an absinthe fountain, delicious champagne cocktails and the best Old Fashioneds you’ll find in the city. If you find yourself hungry, why not try some of the delicious New York–Italian inspired dishes on offer, all of which have been created to match the drinks.
You may well just find yourself transported back to 1920s high society!
