The Park has big shoes to fill.
If you're local to Cork and looking for a new haunt now that it's getting colder, The Park bar and lounge may be just the ticket. They've only been open a month, nestled into a corner between South Main and Tuckey Street.
It's taken over Ziggy's bar, which permanently closed in the midst of the many covid lockdowns. Open since 2006, it was a blow to the community when they closed down for good. While Ziggy's and The Park appear to have very different vibes, we hope the new cosy spot will act as a sufficient replacement.
The Park bar has a range of cocktails, beers, and non-alcoholic drinks for those who don't partake.
The space looks homey with wooden exteriors, as well as modern touches like neon yellow lights spelling, "We're all mad here!" The walls are also covered in artwork, perfect for those who like something to observe while they enjoy a tipple or two.
