7 places in Dublin to get a damned good Bloody Mary

For when your hangover needs that something extra.

SOMETIMES THERE’S NOTHING for it than to seek out the hair of the dog.

The Bloody Mary, a potent cocktail of vodka, tomato juice, and Tabasco sauce, is one drink that is guaranteed to blow that hangover out of the water – and here are seven places in Dublin where you’re sure to find a good one.

The Butcher’s Grill, Ranelagh

The Butcher Bloody Mary. Only available for Brunch #DublinFoodPorn #DublinRestaurants #LovinDublin #Steak #Beef #DublinSteakHouses #IrishBeef #Dinner #InstaFood #BloodyMary #Vodka #CocktailPorn #DublinCocktails Instagram / butchergrill Instagram / butchergrill / butchergrill

Dubbed “supreme” by a Bloody Mary-mad employee, The Butcher’s Grill’s offering is widely considered one of the best in town. Just look at it.

The Exchequer, Exchequer Street

One Yelp reviewer calling it the best they’ve had “in ages”. That’s good enough for us.

The Vintage Cocktail Club, Temple Bar

Happy Saturday! #brunch #bloodymary #cure Instagram / vintagecocktailclubdublin Instagram / vintagecocktailclubdublin / vintagecocktailclubdublin

A favourite of more than a few here in the office, the Bloody Mary at the Vintage Cocktail Club can be ordered light, medium or spicy to fit your needs. At €11, they’re pricey, but a Bloody Mary is like a meal in a glass anyway, isn’t it?

San Lorenzo’s, George’s Street

Bloody Mary at the #brunchofchampions . We open at 10.30am til 4pm for brunch. #sanlorenzos Instagram / sanlorenzos Instagram / sanlorenzos / sanlorenzos

As the king of all brunch places in Dublin, it’s only right that San Lorenzo’s would create one of the best versions of the king of brunch cocktails, isn’t it? Have it with their coco pops French toast and you’ve hit peak brunch.

Odessa, Dame Court

If you have a particularly strong thirst, the fine Bloody Marys in Odessa can come in pitchers (a dangerous yet genius idea). One reviewer says they’re even better than the food. A serious claim.

Whitefriar Grill, Aungier Street

Fighting with The Butcher’s Grill for the title of Best Bloody Mary in Dublin (according to us in Towers) Whitefriar Grill’s Bloody Mary is a delectable accompaniment to their egg menu.

Beckett & Bull, Harold’s Cross

Yes, that is a bit of bacon sticking out of it. The Bloody Marys here come highly recommended from a staffer – and the clincher is, they’re only €6.95. *rubs hands together*
