Named after Dublin’s oldest bar (also known as the world’s oldest bar), the Brazen Head manages to maintain a cozy atmosphere while still hosting up to 450 barcrawlers. Three separate floors with multiple themed rooms offer ample space to spread out and get to know your neighbours.
The Brazen Head offers a mess of weekly specials –from 50 cent wings on martini Mondays to all-you-can-eat mussels on east coast Thursdays. Saturdays and Sundays, be sure to stop in for a mind-blowing brunch that includes options like banana stuffed French toast (there’s a dash of Grand Marnier in there too, but we won’t tell anyone if you try it before noon), the County Cork Quiche, packed with black forest ham, goat’s cheese and Yukon gold potatoes, and the mother of all options –the Irish Fry. This dish is the best buy on the menu. For less than 10 bucks you get three eggs, sausage, peameal bacon, baked beans, homefries and toast!
Dig in to Dinner
If you’re stopping by later in the day check out the lunch and dinner menu. Appetizers, soups and salads include options like Harp-battered and deep-fried sausages, havarti cheese fritters, butternut squash soup and spinach salad. When you’re trying to decide on an entrée, don’t write off the grilled cheese just because it sounds like something you might have ordered when you were seven years old. The Brazen Head’s take on your favourite childhood sandwich incorporates sophisticated cheeses like Swiss, Guinness cheddar and gouda as well as hot house tomatoes and basil. Traditional pub fare includes beef pot pie, Irish stew served with rosemary soda bread and a ploughman’s lunch of honey glazed ham, Guinness cheese, blue cheese, rosemary soda bread, apples, pickles and pickled onions.
