Due to a fire which broke out in L’Atitude on St Patrick’s Day, our premises on Union Quay will be closed for repairs until further notice. However, our events will still be taking place at venues across the city. For details and updates, please check out our events programme below
Award-winning fully-licenced Wine Bar in Cork City, open for morning coffee, lunch and light evening meals. We serve a wide selection of organic, biodynamic & natural wine and honest and simple food based on traditional home-cooking found in French Bistros and Italian Trattorias.
We choose wines and ingredients that respect the environment in which they are grown and that taste of their origin, making every effort to work with seasons. We work with local producers wherever we can.
If you love drinking and learning about wine, check out our list of upcoming events.
We host a variety of fun and informative wine-themed events, including wine courses, tutored tastings, masterclasses, and much more in our Wine Workshop.
WINE FUNDAMENTALS LEVEL 2 COURSE

This is a follow-on course to Wine Fundamentals 1 for people who’d like to further their Wine Knowledge. It is open to people who have already completed a wine course with us or elsewhere, or anyone who already has a basic knowledge of wine and tasting techniques. This course looks at some of the lesser-known grape varieties and takes a more indepth look at well-known wine regions.
The course comprises 4 x 2 hour classes, which are designed to be fun and interactive.
Each class costs €40, or €160 for the full course (discount applies for anyone who signs up for all 4 classes from the start: €150 with discount).

CINECAFE: MOVIES YOU SEE & TASTE
“A Film About Coffee” (Documentary) in association with West Cork Coffee (WCC)
Wednesday 27th March 7.30pm Movie Starts POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE
“A Film About Coffee” is a love letter to, and meditation on, specialty coffee. It examines what it takes, and what it means, for coffee to be defined as “specialty.” The film whisks audiences on a trip around the world, from farms in Honduras and Rwanda to coffee shops in Tokyo, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and New York. Through the eyes and experiences of farmers and baristas, the film offers a unique overview of all the elements-the processes, preferences and preparations; traditions old and new-that come together to create the best cups. This is a film that bridges gaps both intellectual and geographical, evoking flavor and pleasure, and providing both as well
We are delighted to welcome Tony Speight of WCC (local micro roastery based in Innishannon) to see how we interpret the movie through taste. Tickets: €15. Spaces limited so booking essential.
SPEED TASTING – The Most Fun Way to Learn About Wine!!
Friday 22nd March 7.15pm POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE
Due to popular demand, we’re running another Speed Tasting in March. Open to anyone who likes wine, socializing, having fun and, above all, enjoys a challenge. (The wines change from tasting to tasting, so anyone who has been to previous tastings is welcome to attend again)
Here’s how it works: we teach you the basics of how to taste wine and then it’s over to you – you taste 6 wines over the course of the evening – but you’ll be on the move: a different table, a different wine, different co-tasters. And here’s the fun part…..you taste all the wines blind (i.e. we won’t tell you what each wine is) – it’s up to you to work with your co-tasters to try to guess based on the information provided at the start. There’s a prize for the person who correctly identifies all 6 wines.
Price €30pp – includes Prosecco reception, introduction to wine tasting, taster of 6 wines & canapés. Spaces Limited So Booking Essential.
CATALUNYA Vs MADRID (SPANISH WINE WEEK)
A comparative tasting of two exciting Spanish wine regions with Rafael Salazar of Vinostito Wines
THURSDAY April 11th 7.00pm – VENUE SWITCHED TO ALI’S KITCHEN – RORY GALLAGHER PLACE
We’re all familiar with wines from Catalunya, especially from Penedes, and perhaps less familiar with the wines of Madrid – that’s not to say that they are inferior wines.
We are delighted to welcome Rafael Salazar back to L’Atitude for a tasting of some undiscovered wines from Catalunya and to introduce us to some of the wines from the up and coming regions of Madrid that are creating a bit of a stir.
Tickets €18 – includes tasting and canapés. Booking Essential
