Dinner and a show: Where to eat during Dublin Theatre Festival, Irish Times

We love pre-theatre or even post-theatre get togethers and delighted to be included by Joanne in her Dublin list.

Building 01

"It's not easy to choose between Las Tapas de Lola and its newer sibling La Gordita, and given they're just around the corner from each other, both are included here. Owners Anna Cabrera and Vanessa Murphy weave their warmth style of hospitality whether it's Lola's cosy small tapas plates or the elegant bodega-style of La Gordita (aja "the little fat one", named after their beloved pugs). Open up to 11pm, these Spanish spots are perfect for before and after the show"
