Get set for a truly unique cinema experience in the beautifully restored Stella Theatre, an iconic cinematic landmark which sits confidently in the heart of Dublin 6. The cinema and cocktail club have been sympathetically restored to reflect the glamour and glitz of the 1920’s for an entire new generation of movie-goers.



The tapas-style food menu includes delights such as mini Tacos with Sticky Korean Pork, Monkfish with Lime & Pico de Gallo, Classic Cheeseburger and dressed fries.



The cocktail menu plays off the classics, but with a modern twist - on occasion, taking inspiration from the blockbuster movie showing in our auditorium.



Whether you want to sip a cocktail and enjoy a bite-to-eat before or after the movie, or visit the Stella Cocktail Club as your sole destination, we have all the ingredients for a truly special experience.

We ordered some food but it took nearly an hour to come. They were very nice and gave us all the food for free. Excellent customer service and done with a smile . Well done Stella.

Hi, Thanks for leaving us a review and thank you very much for your understanding. We has issues with our printers on the evening you visited us which unfortunately caused a few delays with the food service. I don't want to make any excuses but I can assure you that this does not usually happen with us. Sincere apologies once again. Kind Regards Emma-Jane

Hi Sinead, Thanks so much for your review. I cannot apologise enough for the issues with the food service on the evening of your visit. We are aware of some issues with our printers that evening which is now rectified and not usually something that goes wrong for us. It is still no excuse for the food not being up to standard when you received it. Would you mind sending me your email address to emmajane@stellatheatre.ie when you get a minute. Kind Regards Emma-Jane

Having heard about this place we figured wed give it a go before a movie we were going to see in the cinema downstairs.
For a start we were about 20 minutes early but the lady very kindly accommodated us no problems at all AND she gave us a great table by the window AND proceeded to help me choose a cocktail (im not a cocktail kinda guy so all this was foreign to me). She couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and just made a lovely night a great night!
the place itself is softly lit and very relaxed with no loud music so you can actually chat with the person on the other side of the table!

As a place for 'date night' this place is absolutely perfect!

I would only recommend the Stella Cocktail Club as a pre movie venue. Tables are only available for two hours, regardless of how much you’re spending. Once your two hours are up, you’re asked to leave (even if you still have full drinks) and there is nowhere else to go unless there’s space in the cinema lobby which isn’t much of an option.

It’s a beautiful room and could be a fab place to spend an evening, but that’s not what they’re offering unfortunately.

Despite having stated I was a coeliac when booking there was very poor choice. I was told salmon was all right but when it was cooked they discovered it wasn't gluten free and had to cook another piece which was undercooked. The Manager stepped in and said we would not have to pay for what we had ordered and he certainly saved the evening for us, especially when my husband was in the long queue before the film and he got us a glass of wine and popcorn and brought it to our seat. We would go back to the Stella Cocktaik Club but only for drinks.

Absolutely love the Stella Cinema and Cocktail Bar, this was my third visit. Only downside was one of our meals was delayed. We received or two fries and one burger and shared that while awaiting the arrival of the second burger. We were prompted to order prior to a large party who were there before us but I think one of our burgers may have gone to the large party accidentally!
Other than that all good.

Lovely decor. Tasty cocktails. Normally a fantastic ambience but on this occasion I was really disappointed that the music was bland and modern and not the atmospheric mid-century jazz that was playing every time I've been there previously. This changes the ambience significantly from a welcome escape to an opulent former era to just any old theme bar. I hope it's not a permanent change. Bring the jazz back!
