Spearheaded by the combo of Edward Smith and Leeann King, Bach 16 is a love story of the founders desire to provide the people of Dublin with a wine bar in which they can relax with some sumptuous fare and fine wines.
Both owners come from different backgrounds, from publishing to hospitality, yet their passion has birthed a wondrously quaint location rich with a mellow ambience that’s perfect for a special date night or a cosy catch up.
Now accepting the tastecard, members who call in advance can enjoy everything on the menu at an excellent price, providing a fantastic supply of extra funds that’ll beg to be spent on some partnering wines.
The menu is an eclectic ensemble of delicious dishes that starts with a tantalising array of tapas style bites, such as the irresistible sizzling prawn and chorizo, enriched with garlic and chilli oil, the hearty goat’s cheese stuffed roasted red pepper, complete with crushed walnuts and a honey drizzle, and the delectable chicken and chorizo, presented on an Italian reduction coated bed of spinach.
Those seeking something more than an opulent nibble can choose between a selection of stone baked pizzas and gourmet sandwiches, featuring the likes of the scrumptious Italian bacon and mixed leaf stacked BLT and the invigorating pear, cranberry, walnut and Blue cheese adorned pizza.
Truly somewhere worth seeking out, Bach 16 offers a quiet corner in the busy city, and with scenic views of the River Liffey just outside there’s nowhere more tranquil in all of Dublin.
