Hargadons Bar

Hargadons Bar Review

Part of the social fabric of Sligo since it opened over 150 years ago, Hargadons Bar preserves its unique historic character and local chef-owner Joe Grogan maintains high standards in a much-loved institution. Wood paneling, cozy snugs (small booths) for private powwows, marble-top counters, and little glass doors on hinges make this place especially conducive to that intangible Irish element, the craic. Check out the walls, covered with historical black-and-white photos as well as fading invoices from the bar's early days. Hearty food at great prices is served at lunchtime, and the evening dinner menu, featuring oysters, mussels, burgers, tiger prawns, or confit of duck, lists local suppliers. Musicians often hold center stage on weekend nights with a range of country-rock, pop, folk, and Irish traditional. Walk through the bar and in separate premises at the back you will find the well-stocked Hargadons Wine Shop in Johnston Court.
