Bad Bobs

Bad Bobs 
East Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Last time I was in Bad Bobs, I was months away from my Leaving Cert and Pussycat Dolls’ ‘Don’t Cha’ was bloody huge. For a brief period, it was Purty Kitchen where €2 Tuesdays were a big draw for the students and those who liked students. But now, Bob is back in town and he’s not a bad lad.

What has it got?

Seating: There is a range of seating opportunities here. Low stools, high stools, bar seat, standard table and chair format. All of the chairs are moveable and you’ll find the right fit.
Doors: The doors are all wide enough for a wheelchair but the door of the wheelchair bathroom is a tad heavy.
Ground: We have every floor surface in action here. Wooden, tiled, lino.
Stairs: There are five floors in Bad Bobs and they have a lift that will bring you to each and every one.
Bathrooms: Their wheelchair bathroom is big and, as I said, the door is a bit heavy. The lift brings you right to the bathroom too.
Spaciousness: It can get a bit tight to move around here when it fills up but other than that, no issues with space.
Helpfulness of Staff: Before I even got in the front door, the bouncers told me where the lift was and what floor the wheelchair bathroom was on. Very helpful bunch of lads.
Parking: There is a wheelchair parking spot on Wellington Quay (map here).
Rating: 10/10
Why did it lose points? Other than some rafty song choices, there are no complaints to be made about Mr. Bob.
