Kennedy’s Pub, dating back to the 1850’s and the former workplace of Oscar Wilde, last night held the Media and Influencer launch of their new cocktail bar ‘Kennedy’s Station’.

The historic Dublin pub, nestled within Westland Row, Dublin 2, decided to add a modern cocktail bar downstairs within their venue, in order to evolve with the needs of modern Dublin and the bustling office area in which they are located.

Dublin’s top media and celebrity socialisers were out in force, including models Aoife Walsh and Jo Archbold, and Stylists Justine King, Laura Mullet and Clementine Mac Neice.

Many of Ireland’s top Social Media Stars, including Niamh Cullen and Rob Kenny, were also spotted – as well as Irish media legend Ann Doyle, who made it in to sample a Kennedy’s Station cocktail.

Guests were treated to a variety of themed ‘cocktail stations’, spaced out amongst the modern new bar, in order to give them a taste for a few of the favourites the ‘Station’s’ mixologists are quickly becoming known for.

Including Pornstar Martinis, Espresso Martinis and Kennedy Station’s own take on the classic Irish Coffee.

The lively crowd sipped cocktails and dined on a distinctive gastro-pub food menu, as celebrity DJ Tara Stewart kept the music playing until late.
