Wine Bar

L’Atitude 51 is a vibrant wine bar in the heart of Cork City with a compelling selection of natural wines brimming with life and simple honest food designed to compliment, not overshadow the wines. The atmosphere is laid back and warm inspired by cosy Parisian caves-à-manger – a throwback bar/café where people flock for an aperitif before dinner or stay on and make an evening of it!

A Beautiful Historic Building

Set in a beautiful historic building over two floors overlooking Cork’s River Lee, with massive windows that give a bright, airy feel and some of the best views in the city, this is one of Cork’s favourite spots to catch up with friends over a glass of wine.

To keep the atmosphere relaxed and informal it’s mostly walk-ins, but reservations are also welcome, especially at weekends when it’s a little harder to find a seat.


Our evening menu, served 5pm – 9.30pm Tuesday to Saturday, is brief and to the point with a short list of small plates and cheese and charcuterie platters designed for sharing, inspired by traditional French and Italian home cooking, but using the best ingredients sourced as locally possible by environmentally-conscious producers, cooked well and simply.

A great place to begin or end an evening sharing small plates and bottles.


We serve locally-roasted West Cork Coffee – available all day. We also serve a selection of freshly baked pastries. 
Retails packs of West Cork Coffee are also available for purchase for your home coffee needs 

Our Wine


We offer a stunning selection of reasonably priced organic, biodynamic and natural wines by the glass and bottle and larger format magnums and double-magnums, carefully selected from the world’s most interesting wine regions and styles. The list is constantly evolving as we discover new wines, so you’re guaranteed to find something new each time you visit.

As we’re fully licensed, we also carry a nice selection of craft beers, ciders, spirits and cocktails in case wine isn’t your thing.
