Chocolate Bar, Wexford

A photograph of Chocolate Bar, which was a pub that was situated on Wexford Town's Common Quay Street, close to the Bullring. In the past, a popular nightclub called The Renaissance used to be situated above the bar. Unfortunately, it dwindled in popularity before eventually closing its doors.

At the end of 2014, it was reported that the premises had been put up for sale by Grant Thornton - a professional services firm that took over on behalf of Ulster Bank when its original owner Bull McCabe's Ltd. went into receivership.

A shot of the premises in February, 2016. As you can see, the roofed section of the beer garden has been boarded up. A sign in the bottom left hander corner advertises Chocolate Bar's Bistro Menu, which was served every evening between 6PM and 9PM:

Here are a few pictures of The Renaissance's interior (apologies for the low quality):
