The AC Hotel Columbus Dublin by Marriott is nearing completion and will accept its first guest next Tuesday, September 26. The 150-room hotel is part of phase one of the Bridge Park development, opening access to the diverse restaurant, retail and entertainment options to Dublin visitors. One element available to anyone, regardless of their check-in status at the AC, is the AC Lounge.
Just past the lobby lies the bar, fully stocked with liquor, wine on tap and canned beers, and offering a menu of small plates, snacks and sweets. The bar and food menu, and the hotel itself, are heavily inspired by Spanish culture. The star of the show is their gin, a spirit that AC Hotel Columbus Dublin General Manager Orcun Turkay said is a key element of Spanish cuisine.
To elevate their gin list, the AC Hotel has partnered with Watershed Distillery to create a custom gin only available at the hotel and through Watershed itself.
