Cleaver East is a hidden gem located at the end of Temple Bar and it can be accessed through either the Clarence Hotel or from East Essex Street. The Clarence Hotel is owned by U2’s Bono and The Edge and it can be found in the popular Temple Bar area.
Cleaver East is known for its top food both during the week and also at the weekend for brunch. The decor is very cool and there are also decorative cleaver knives to be seen. Staff are very accommodating when it comes to dietary requirements and they have a very reasonable early bird menu too!
They are so quirky and different at Cleaver East with their version of Afternoon Tea which is called ‘Not Afternoon Tea. I would recommend all visitors to Dublin to try and include Cleaver East at some point during your stay.
Reservations are recommended as they are very busy at the weekends – do make sure to check their opening hours too as they vary from day to day!
