Our Roof Terrace

Located in the heart of Temple Bar on Essex Street, Bad Bob’s roof terrace is our hidden gem at the top of the building that’s been rated as one of the best rooftop bars Dublin has to offer.

You might be in the heart of Temple Bar, but with our rooftop terrace tucked away out of sight, it makes for a great escape from the hectic streets below.

It’s one of the only rooftop bars in the city with its own bar, seating area and smoking section, making it the ideal hangout spot when you’re on a big night out with friends.

Live Music at our Rooftop Terrace

Every day we have lots going on here in Bad Bobs and the surrounding area; it’s why we’re rated as one of the top bars in Dublin by the folks at TripAdvisor.

At the weekends, we turn into a busy and dynamic club, with live DJs playing everyone’s favourites and sometimes even a saxophonist at hand to add a little extra oomph to floor fillers and dance classics.
