Located in the heart of Dublin’s buzzing Liberties district, the Roe & Co Distillery have offered up their home to local Dublin restaurants, no longer in a position to welcome customers through their restaurant doors, under current restrictions.
Roe & Co, a brand that lives and breathes creative reinvention, have transformed the outside of the Distillery space into a Cocktail Village using upcycled shipping container pods.
On specified days over the next two weeks, the Cocktail Garden will welcome two independent businesses, who are paving the way in Ireland’s food scene.
Variety Jones, a Dublin 8 restaurant dedicated to cooking seasonal ingredients over open flame, will be bringing their Michelin star experience outdoors, serving up a mouth-watering tasting menu this Saturday and Sunday (3rd and 4th October). Check out the menu here.
Dublin chef Niall Sabongi, who has gained well-deserved notoriety for his offering at Klaw and The Seafood Café, will also continue onsite on Thursday and Friday evenings until the end of October with his latest venture, the Salty Buoy Food Truck.
Niall Sabongi, of the Salty Buoy Food Truck commented; “It’s incredible and so heartening to see the outpouring of support across Ireland for small businesses and food suppliers over the last few weeks, as everyone knows we are facing a huge challenge. We have loved hosting Salty Buoy at Roe & Co Distillery, as it’s not only supporting my business, it’s also helping to keep fishermen working while many restaurants are closed.”
Keelan Higgs, Founder of Variety Jones said; “In this industry it’s vital to keep cooking, to keep moving and the team at Roe & Co have made this possible for us. Marrying what we do with what they do is progressive for the city of Dublin. We’re extremely happy to be involved with Roe & Co and to be able to make the most out of their creative outdoor space which means we can keep doing what we love to do. In these uncertain times, it’s so important to keep food culture and art culture alive in this city and to do our best to ensure people feel some level of normality.”
