The Left Bank Bar Kilkenny opened on the 8th of May 2008 and quickly established itself as a must visit for locals and visitors alike. Inside this wonderfully designed bar you will find numerous nooks and corners each offering their own unique view of this magnificent building constructed in 1870 but brought to life with the renovations in 2008. The beautiful main bar is the perfect place to enjoy a midweek drink with friends in a relaxed but lively atmosphere with the live Jazz band on Sunday evenings not to be missed. The outside area or “Louis Backyard” is fully heated and covered with its own outdoor fireplace and both an indoor and outdoor bar. Upstairs the lively bar is filled on weekends with reveller’s and party goers that have made Kilkenny the mecca for social gatherings. The adjacent Rive Gauche Restaurant offers fabulous food that oozes contemporary Parisian flair coupled with a tempting drinks menu that’s hard to match. With regular live entertainment the Left Bank is a venue not to be missed on your visit to Kilkenny
