Charcu wine bar in Marina Market

The perfect place to start your night.

If you’re headed to the Real Capital this weekend for Jazz Fest, there’s a new spot to hit up for wine and nibbles amidst the crooners and craic.

Charcú just opened up inside Marina Market on Centre Park Road and it’s a fully formed, immaculately tiled bar that wouldn’t look out of place on a sunny boulevard in Spain.

Promising to be “Corks most unique new bar”, Charcú is the latest patch in the tapestry that makes Marina Market a step up from your average mart. With a fully operational barbers, extremely glam toilets and now a sit-in wine bar with all the trimmings, sure where else would you actually be going?

Charcú offers an extensive list of the finest wines, along with a fridge full of locally sourced meats and cheeses for the charcuterie board of your dreams. The perfect spot for date night, girls night, or for rewarding yourself after a rummage around one of Marina Market’s weekend fleas.

If wine and cheese isn’t your thing, there are still a million reasons to visit Marina Market if you haven’t done so yet – there are food stalls to suit all tastes whether you’re in the mood for burgers, rotisserie chicken or authentic Sicilian pasta, as well as plenty of coffee spots and places to sit and chill. Definitely worth a visit if you’re jazz-handing it around Cork this weekend!
