Designed by the award-winning gardener Diarmuid Gavin in the heart of Dundrum Shopping Centre, this beautiful space is now home to an enchanting secret garden Candlelight pop-up bar which has to be seen to be believed.
The pop-up is a feast for the eyes dotted with flowerbeds, trees in bloom, funky hangout spots and quirky gardening tool features. This gorgeous garden bar has another secret, it is home to the Kopparberg Fruit Market bar, a work of Scandinavian inspiration that evokes a stroll through Stockholm’s lively food markets.
The Kopparberg Fruit Market will serve Grown Up Ice Cream Cones – a hybrid of cocktails and soft serve that we are more than a little excited about! Think the creamy delights you craved as a child, transformed into the treat of your dreams with a range of spiked syrups like Hendricks gin, Kopparberg Raspberry syrup with fresh raspberry and Manhattan cocktail sauce with Maraschino cherries.
If you prefer to keep your tipple and cone separate, you can enjoy a classic 99 alongside a signature Koppar-cocktail featuring everyone’s favourite premium natural cider or just a classic Kopparberg Elderflower & Lime or Raspberry.
The Fruit Market will be open from 12pm to 9pm daily, for the month of July only, so start planning your trip now and get down there for unique summer sipping soon! Keep an eye on Kopparberg Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for more exciting news throughout the summer. Skål!
