Cuisine: Cocktail Bar, Pizza, Tapas/Small Plates
Price Point: Mains from €10 - €20

An eclectic mixing pot of homemade food, stunning cocktails and wine. The Bookshelf happens to be the trendiest spot in all of dainty Cork.

Taking its design cues from Scandi's chic minimalism, this eatery effortlessly transforms from daytime café to nighttime bistro. Like it's food, the interior is clean and fresh, boasting whitewashed walls and enormous cushions to flop into.

It's tapas for dinner and that means one thing; sharing plates! Take the opportunity to sample as many of their delicious offerings as possible. Decorate the table with goodies like their Atlantic prawns in a white wine and garlic sauce, Irish lamb kebabs, BBQ jackfruit sliders and salty chorizo and parsley mini pastries, best dipped into a bowl of chimichurri.

If you don't want to share your cocktail, we don't blame you. Try their signature G&T, a one-of-a-kind mix that features an intoxicating apple and basil syrup. Stay classy with a bookshelf martini or whisky Boulevardier and relive your very own Notting Hill moment (sadly minus Hugh Grant).

The food is amazing!! Our bill came to €27 (I had a cocktail, and my mom had a coffee), so the meal came to around €17. We shared four tapas dishes, which was more than enough for two people! The nachos are amazing, and the black bean sauce was the nicest I've ever tasted. We also had the jackfruit sliders (so good), the patatas bravas and the wings. The wing sauce wasn't to our liking so I'd recommend asking for their garlic mayo with the wings instead!
