Plonk yourself down.

Winedown, a brand new wine bar located on Montague Street in heart of Dublin City, is the latest brainchild of entrepreneur Maeve O’Malley, the woman behind Dublin’s favourite cheesy café, Meltdown.

Winedown, which officially opened its doors last Friday December 4, is Meltdown’s night-time sister. It’s a wine bar but so much more.

Winedown offers food and wine with relaxed service in a space filled with contemporary Irish art. Think sharing plates and set menus with interesting wine pairings and exceptional cheese

Aside from an inevitably excellent cheese plate, Winedown’s menu is small but perfectly formed. Nibbles start at €4 and include Smoked Almonds and Gougeré with Smoked Mackerel Pâte.

Wine is available by the glass from €11 while bottles of red white and sparkling wines are available from €26


Chef Maeve Walsh curated the Winedown menu…Nadine Savage carried out the interior design…DJ Tara Stewart created the playlist and Meltdown stalwart Sarah Maloney designed the branding. Nichola Hughes created the wine list, Fattiburke painted an original mural that greets you as you enter the space, and Kate Dillon is keeping loyal fans up to date sharing sneak peeks on social media…
