Pantibar opened in November 2007 and has been part of the fabric of the city ever since. Their aim was to combine elements of an old-school community gay bar with a modern, stylish, city-centre bar, and they think they’ve achieved that. They are just a few meters from the river Liffey on Dublin’s “Nort Side”, on much loved Capel Street. The street has always been an eclectic mix and remains so today, crammed with hundreds of small independent stores (everything from hardware stores to sex shops, bespoke tailors to antiques, workwear to rubber stamps, furniture to martial arts…) and restaurants (traditional fish & chips, Asian, Turkish…). There’s not a lot you can’t get on Capel Street, and Pantibar’s landmark illuminated sign stands proudly at the top of it.
This cosy little watering hole is the most personalised gay bar in Dublin. Owned by the queen of Dublin drag Panti, the bar has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
During the weekday evenings, it’s relaxed and quiet so is a good location to unwind for after work drinks. But Panti Bar likes to throw a party at weekends and they are always kicking. The music is an eclectic mix of pop, indie, electro, disco, and rock.
The weekend at Panti’s begins on a Thursday and ends on Sunday playing host to all different types of events which gives customers many reasons to continue to flock back.
Weekend nights have an amazing entertainment show from 10pm with musical performances full of rainbows, glitter and glamour!
The crowd at Pantibar is a mix of fun loving people, with the staff being a welcoming and friendly bunch.
