The Universal is a small bar focusing on craft beers, cocktails and an imaginative food menu. Located in the Westend district of Galway City it compliments the alternative nature of the area with its beautifully crafted interior and unique drinks menu.
It opened in 2016 in a premises that was previously called the Old Forge and could scarcely have been more different. The interior has clearly benefited from some well thought out design with every bit of space being utilised. The result is a comfortable stylish bar with its very own distinctive style.
The food menu is varied but definitely adventurous with something in most prices brackets. The beers are as you would expect but those who prefer the staples such as Heineken and Carlsberg will not find them here.
The Cocktails seem to be a passion with an ever changing lineup of new drinks to try.
