Cafe en Seine Finally Reopens with Glamorous New Look

The newly designed bar features several dining spaces and a Parisian inspired street garden.

Established in 1993, the Dawson’s St. bar quickly became known as one of Ireland’s leading destination venues. Set to continue this legacy, the newly designed space features several dining experiences along with a host of bars and bespoke event areas.

Renowned for its five-star service, Café en Seine offers an extensive food menu which caters for a range of tastes and occasions. The menu features several dining options including; ‘at the bar’ sharing plates for those who are looking for a casual food experience and a bespoke à la carte menu for those who want to enjoy a meal in the newly designated restaurant.


Café en Seine boasts one of the largest bar spaces in Ireland. The re-imagined venue continues to deliver the premium bar service its customers have come to know and love. Spread across seven areas, the bars now serve everything from local favourites to high end beers, spirits and cocktails.

Famous for its opulent interiors, Café en Seine has introduced an indoor-outdoor street garden to the iconic venue. The botanical bar and dining area has its own entrance on Anne’s Lane to the rear of the building.

The Parisian inspired, conservatory style garden is suitable for the changeable Irish weather conditions featuring a retractable glass roof. In this unique area, customers can enjoy a casual dining experience during the day and at night, the street garden transforms in to a lively bar space.

Continuing to host premium functions and events, Café en Seine offers several event spaces for corporate and occasion bookings. Customers can avail of their own private restrooms and smoking areas along with dedicated service staff.

Announcing the re-opening, David Murray, Café en Seine’s General Manager said; ‘A lot of thought, research and planning has gone in to the re-design of Café en Seine. We are one of Dublin’s most iconic venues and we want to continue that legacy for many years to come.’

He continued; ‘The new Café en Seine offers the same great service that we are famous for. To add to this, we have re-imagined the space to ensure it caters for the modern customer. Everything from the venue layout, to the food offering to the drinks service has the customer in mind. We look forward to welcoming a new era for Café en Seine, its staff and its customers.’
