Brought to you by The River Club.
Already planning those Christmas cocktails?
With the festive season just around the corner, clever Cork merrymakers are already booking in their seasonal suppers with old friends and reserving tables for catch-ups over long lunches and bubbly brunches.
No matter which Christmas get-together you’re organising (Sunday lunch with Granny or a luxurious wine-soaked feast with friends?) you’ll find the perfect vibe for your little shindig at The River Club.
The pride of the waterside River Lee Hotel on Cork’s Western Road, The River Club offers three unique experiences so you can always be guaranteed you’ll find the right atmosphere, not to mention a famously fabulous menu.
And the proof is in the pudding; The River Club recently topped the Best Restaurants in Cork list, as voted for by a procession of very impressed past guests from all over the globe on TripAdvisor.
Here’s our guide to booking the best table for your seasonal soirée…
FOR SLOW SIPS AND LONG CHATS
Book: The Bar
In The River Club Bar, you’ll find a distinct New York vibe with deep buttoned leather couches and marble-topped tables. Classic cocktails are given a Cork accent with the addition of local ingredients (pssst; try the Raza Girl), and small plates, perfect for sharing, focus on local meats, cheeses, and seafood.
Weekend DJs provide a vibrant yet mellow backdrop of soulful classics and chilled electronic beats, meaning cocktails and great catch-ups with friends are a sure thing here.
FOR BRUNCH WITH AN INSTA-FRIENDLY BACKDROP
Book: The Terrace
The now-iconic terrace at The River Club is a cosy haven during the chillier months. With heaters and McNutt throws to keep you toasty, autumnal foliage, and festive twinkling lights all aglow, it’s the perfect base for busy-out or balmed-out brunches.
Choose from delicious Riverview eggs, served any way you like, a healthy superfood salad, or a delectable grilled Angus beef burger – lunch and brunch are served seven days a week here.
FOR A GOURMET FEAST WITH THE FAMILY (OR A DATE)
Book: The Grill Room
The jewel in the crown of The River Club, The Grill Room’s cognac leather banquettes and bold artwork set the scene for special dinners and delectable Sunday lunches. Twomey’s of Macroom steaks and Ballycotton seafood are grilled to perfection on the Robata grill, and a dedicated and celebrated plant-based menu ensures all guests are catered for.
Expect a thoughtfully curated list of organic, sustainable, and fully vegan wines too, many with an Irish connection.
