This project came about from conversations between Oisin Davis of Great Irish Beverages & Wojciech Tysler from Bewley’s, who was a finalist in the World Barista Championships 2021. Both were keen to explore how their two respective worlds could combine for mixing up some tasty drinks. After working together on research and development, they landed on running a pop-up Cocktail Club where beautiful coffees and premium Irish made spirits come together in the stunning James Joyce Room in Bewley’s Café. Each of the three cocktails will be made with Bewley’s new Inca Single Origin Coffee from Peru. It is a Fairtrade certified coffee that comes from the Pangoa Cooperative in the Satipo Province, and is rich in fruity and cacao nib flavours.
Bewley’s Café on Grafton Street is a landmark location, adored by Dubliners and visitors alike for generations. Built by Ernest Bewley in 1927 at a cost of £60,000 (€15 million in today’s money) no expense was spared for its design, which included customized stained glass windows by the renowned Irish artist, Harry Clarke. It quickly became the flagship for the Bewley’s brand and remains so to this day.
Front and centre of the building on the first floor, is The James Joyce Room. Named after o none of Dublin’s most celebrated writers, its relaxed yet decadent atmosphere has drawn in Irish artists and creatives for close to a hundred years.
Oisin Davis from Great Irish Beverages notes, “The James Joyce Room in Bewley’s, has always been one of my favourite spaces in the capital. It has an authenticity and old world beauty that you simply can’t find anywhere else. And with a roaring open fire on either side of the room and the Grafton Street Christmas lights outside, I cannot wait to serve up some delicious Irish made, Bewley’s coffee cocktails for Thursday night shoppers and Christmas revellers. A dream project in a legendary venue!”
It is a strictly over 18’s event and in accordance with current govt restrictions, capacity is reduced and tickets are very limited.
