Galway has for some years revelled in the midst of a cocktail revival that has seen several venues offer cocktails, from mojitos to crisp Martinis, that replicate the very best cocktail venues from around the globe. Galway has also had its role in the creation of new cocktails that compete at national level, along with events hosted in the city to foster new creations in Galway's bars and clubs. In recent weeks a new venue has opened in the West End that looks to gather the best of Galway's cocktail talent under one roof. This, combined with the very best in spirits, aims to show what good cocktails are all about.
Nova cocktail bar opened its doors six weeks ago, offering a dedicated venue where great drinks are served in a cool, speakeasy atmosphere by fully trained mixologists from 12 noon daily. The menu comprises some 54 select cocktails including many Nova original creations. The team is also more than happy to cater to individual tastes and spirit preferences. Nova is also offering a snack menu from 12 noon daily, including a delicious fillet steak sandwich on offer for only €8. The kitchen also serves up an amazing lunch menu with fresh sandwiches with soup served up for only €6.
"We are constantly adjusting our offering based on the feedback we are getting," said general manager Peter Callan. "Right now in Nova you can have fantastic cocktails starting at €6. We make them to the very highest standards using the best ingredients and that is what's working for us. I'd recommend anyone to try a rye brunch, whether you love whiskey or not, it is one cocktail I'm really proud of."
Nova bar is sure to succeed with the winning combination of great cocktails and fantastic food. Bookings can be made by contacting Nova Bar Galway on 091 725693.
