Now in its tenth year of serving the Southside, Mulberry St Bar/Bistro is still synonymous with quality food, great beer and friendly service.
On a corner often drenched in Southside sun sits Mulberry St, a bar and bistro that has been keeping the area’s end up even before it became fashionable. With an owner that knows the neighbourhood inside and out, Mulberry is a welcome juxtaposition to the often faceless bars of the city centre. With easily more seafood on the menu than Captain Ahab could angrily shake a stick at, this place is a great choice for those who know what they want and how they want it. The menu hasn’t changed much for a while, and why should it when you do it this well? For starters the Cullen skink is a salty and creamy celebration of the sea, while the pan-fried swordfish is meaty but packed with flavour. In the bar they offer craft ales to either set you up or sooth your senses after a busy day.
