A new laid-back watering hole has quietly opened on Ann Street in January 2016, offering top-shelf spirits and delicious cocktail concoctions. Pillar Bar is a cosy spot where stellar customer service and brilliant bespoke drinks are vital. The bar is filled to the brim with a huge selection of whisky as well as boutique rums, vodkas and gins. The mix masters at Pillar Bar are utilising herbs and spices for many cocktails, even adding chilli to a number of zesty concoctions. The Isle of Shrub cocktail mixes peated whisky, rosemary syrup and orange bitters into a memorable blend, while the Wooded Boulevardier boasts bourbon, Campari, marsala, bitters, cloves and orange. Craft beers from the likes of Green Beacon are also available, as is a small selection of wines.
