The Design Story of Pen & Player
Located in 3-4 Harcourt Street, offering picturesque views of St. Stephen’s Green, Pen & Player boasts an intimate and unique atmosphere. Its interior design pays homage to the architectural heritage of the Georgian buildings it calls home while tastefully incorporating modern elements.
Panoramic French fabric wall coverings, set Pen & Player apart from Dublin’s social scene. The bar exudes art deco-inspired aesthetics, with a moody colour palette featuring deep burgundy tones and ornate ceiling coving that creates an opulent ambiance. In contrast, the vibrant bar area features midnight finishes, integrated lighting, decorative wall lights, and pink smoked mirrors that add a touch of glamour.
The furniture selection elegantly combines plush French velvets and supple leather, evoking a sense of classical boudoir elegance. Natural quartz surfaces, with chic vein patterns, add a modern touch, complementing the overall theme. Ornate Georgian ceiling coving has been meticulously restored, providing a perfect stage for Italian Murano glass chandeliers. Antique brass wall and table lights provide soft, inviting illumination.
Shauna Deely, Director of Operations at The Green Hotel, commented, “Opening Pen & Player, Dublin’s most exciting premium cocktail bar, is truly a momentous occasion for us all at The Green Hotel. Our Bar Manager and Mixologist, Rui Pinheiro, and Head Chef Paul Lee have poured their passion into crafting an unforgettable experience for our eagerly awaiting guests and the public. As we sail into this year’s festive season and beyond, we are committed to pushing the boat out with the highest quality, locally sourced produce, and expertise. It’s a journey we’re thrilled to embark upon, and we can’t wait to share it with all of you.”
