Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and First Lady Michelle Obama, not to mention being the physical birthplace of the Irish Constitution. 

A hotel with such a significant past deserves a cocktail lounge where guests can relax and recognise the prominent position this building has held in Dublin’s history.  The No. 27 Bar & Lounge, named for the hotel’s address at 27 St. Stephen’s Green, does extraordinarily well to compliment The Shelbourne Dublin, A Renaissance Hotel.  Offering a rich and sophisticated environment, the lounge features tall windows and original landscape paintings, welcoming the bright light and lush greenery of the surrounding region into the space.

Mixing modern furnishings with traditional décor, the No. 27 Bar & Lounge tastefully combines soft, elegant fabrics with black top tables and unique light fixtures.  Guests will discover ample space in which to cosy up with cherished company and savour a delightful signature cocktail.
