The Cellar bar is a staple of the Galway Pub scene being made up of the ground level main bar and the downstairs sports bar. Although taken over by new owners in 2011 the clientele and atmosphere has stayed mostly the same.
The emphasis is on good Pub food served in generous portions including great value daily two course specials. The menu covers most appetites from big meals to snacks and sandwiches. The bar area itself is really comfortable with a mixture of cafe style seats and comfortable couches. Large windows look out onto Eglington street and Brown Thomas.
At night the main bar plays host to a wide range of music such as the Wednesday open mic night hosted by the NUI Music Society which is always popular. Jazz, Dj competitions and singer songwrites can all be heard here and its worth dropping in during the day to check out whats happening at night. Going back to the 1970's the Cellar was a hotbed of music with Irish artists such as Frankie Gavin and Mickey Finn playing here.
