First look: The Dublin House in Midtown Memphis

A new Irish pub — The Dublin House — has opened in the former location of Melos Taverna in Midtown Memphis, just off Overton Square at 2021 Madison.

I visited The Dublin House on Saturday as part of the Bluff City Brewers 5K Pub Crawl and liked it so much that my friends and I ended our crawl there, stayed for a couple of beers, and didn’t make the last few stops.

The bar is still waiting for its on-premise beer permit, which is supposed to come through this Thursday.

For now, The Dublin House is selling “house offerings” of bottled high-alcohol beers, including Sierra Nevada Glissade, Abita Jockamo IPA, Mendocino White Hawk Select IPA, North Coast Acme Pale Ale, Sierra Nevada Torpedo and Victory Moonglow Weizenbock. Some of the high-alcohol offerings may stay on the menu, depending on demand.

The bartender told me she expects to have Guinness, Harp Lager, Smithwick’s and some domestics on tap, and possibly Boddingtons.

One downside for me is that smoking is allowed. But on my afternoon visit, it wasn’t too smoky.

For food, The Dublin House serves:

Appetizers ($6-$8)

Beef Sliders

Portobello Sliders

Parmesan Mozzarella Fried Cheese Shots

Hot Cheese Shots (Very tasty.)

Chicken Sliders

Sandwiches ($9)

Philly Cheese Steak

Open Faced Reuben

Specialties ($9-$12)

Dublin Style Fish n’ Chips

Beef and Guinness Rib Tips

Pork Shanks

Rotisserie Chicken Legs

Lamb Shank

  1. Very nice! Thanks for doing a review!

  2. Great place, excited its in our neighborhood! My only critique was that I really thought I should get more than six fried cheese balls for $8. That’s over a dollar a ball. I mean I’m from WI, you’d get yourself a MOUNTAIN of cheese balls for $8.
