Wine Bar

Bobby’s is a new basement wine bar located on Baggot St Upper just beside Baggot Street wines. The name was inspired by Sir Robert Bagod who Baggot St was named after.

Our wine list is made up of Classics which are generally well known and loved, and Mavericks, which are of equal quality but a bit edgier.

Our Chef has put together a menu that is perfect for sharing over a few glasses of wine.

The interiors are bright pink and green and the music gets louder as the night goes on.

    There was no indication when booking through open table that the seating we reserved was outside and staff were unable to facilitate a move inside. They advised us that I would have selected the terrace on making my reservation, this was not the case, there is not an option to choose indoor or outdoor seating. In November, I wouldn’t have booked had I known this and we resultantly had a very cold evening. Though the wine and food was nice, we would have ordered more and stayed longer had we been warm enough. One heater was broken. Overall disappointing.

    We were there very early in evening so it was not busy yet but still all felt a bit lack lustre and bloody chilly .. for a wine and cheese bar the wine list is super limited and the cheese plate was underwhelming..staff were awesome.. prob better to go later at night, after a meal I think.

    Brought GF for Birthday. Great wine and service. Food was good got 3 nibbles and a cheeseboard a bit later. Expected a bit more for the price, but I would recommend it for date night.

    Thought about cancelling because I didn't feel well only to discover there is a 20 euro fee for cancelling through OpenTable. Really annoying and very poor customer service to punish people with a fee for something outside their control. I will never use OpenTable again and now Bobby's wine bar is a no go for me. They should eliminate that outrageous cancellation fee. Wine was over priced and cheese was fine but nothing special. Learning of the cancellation fee just put me in a bad mood, won't be going back and won't use OpenTable again.

    Visited Bobby's this weekend - the atmosphere was so good, great music and buzz, even in the early afternoon. They have a great selection of wines but we also ended up getting a couple of Aperol Spritz. The food was the showstopper for us, we shared a toastie which was to die for, as well as a cheeseboard and plates of nibbles. Service was very fast with extremely helpful staff. Will 100% be coming back, thanks for a great time.

    Charging €32 for a ‘bottle’ of tap prosecco which was incredibly flat was a bit ridiculous. The wine on offer was grand again not worth the money. Has the potential to be something great but needs a bit of work.

    Fantastic evening in Bobby's on a busy Friday evening. The wine list and food menu is short and sweet. Outdoor terrace is fully covered, warm, well spaced out, simple and safe. Music is Ibiza chillout style. We were made feel very welcome by waiting staff. Hummus dish needs more crudites! A lovely neighbourhood spot. Well done folks :)

    Tried out Bobbys recently Very average- a crazy small menu for a night out but if you want to go down that ambient wine bar road don’t light the place like McDonalds- far far too bright- sucked any atmosphere out of the place . Also do not like drinking wine out of tumblers there should be a choice of a stem glass
