Bartley Dunnes Cocktail Bar, an iconic establishment hailing all the way from Dublin, Ireland now has a location in Midtown at 160 West 54th Street.

Inspired by the rich history and tradition of Dublin's beloved Bartley Dunnes, the first-of-its-kind iconic bar in Dublin, created for musicians, artists, poets, and the gay community that once made Catholic Ireland astounded.

"We are beyond excited to introduce Bartley Dunnes Cocktail Bar to Midtown West's vibrant and diverse community," said McNamee Brothers, Owners of PMacs Hospitality. "Our team has worked hard to recreate the authentic atmosphere and spirit of the original bar, ensuring that patrons can savor the same sense of camaraderie, laughter, and outstanding libations that have made Bartley Dunnes a beloved institution in Dublin."

Designed by the New York City-based firm Affect Group, the bi-level bar features a sleek bordello style decor by renowned interior designer David Criolla, formerly from AvroKO. Bartley's features eye-catching artwork from artists around New York City and Ireland.

At the heart of Bartley Dunnes Cocktail Bar lies an impressive beverage program curated by mixologist Conor Meyers with signature cocktail creations like the Salt Bae Cafe, a salted caramel espresso martini, and the Only Fans, a take on a classic porn star martini.

Visitors will also find tapas-style small plates for sharing including Pork Belly Baos and Disco Tater Tots alongside flatbreads, burgers, fish & chips and more.
