De Brouwersgracht, Amsterdam
Among the heavily trafficked boulevards of Madrid are hidden gems waiting to be discovered. I often avoid the busy places, opting instead for the nooks and crannies. The side streets. The alleys and quiet passages of the city grid. Barrio Malasana is not lacking in this pursuit.
Along the River Liffey, in the heart of Dublin’s cultural quarter you will find the most renown cafe bar scene in Ireland. The place is chock full of interesting beer pubs, restaurants and cafes. The Stag’s Head, The Ha’penny Bridge Inn, Buskers and much more. All offer a vibrant social scene and lots of the foamy stuff to whet your palate. I started at The Temple Bar, the most famous, before I made my rounds. While in Dublin this area is certainly not to be missed. Just watch out for those pesky little Leprechauns. After a few frosty pints i am sure you will see them!~ZT
