L’Atitude Temporarily Closed Due to Fire Damage
Due to a fire which broke out in L’Atitude on 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 the months of August,September and October we will be popping up in St Peter’s North Main Street for a series of wine events.
September 2019 : Still On the Road….
It seems that our nomadic lifestyle will continue a little while longer as we wait for repairs to 1 Union Quay to begin. We had hoped to be back in by Autumn at the latest, but due to unforeseen issues, it now looks like it will be another few months before we’re back pouring wines from our corner spot on Union Quay. Whether that will be before or after Christmas is hard to say, but resting on ones laurels is not a L’Atitude forte, so we are busy hatching plans for alternative ways to get your L’Atitude fix for the festive season. We’ll keep you posted here.
In the meantime, check out our events programme below to see where we’re popping up next. Or we can travel to you if you have a venue and would like us to organise a tasting for you.
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.

SPEED TASTING THE MOST FUN WAY TO LEARN ABOUT WINEWine
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. Identify all 6 wines and you could win a prize.
Price €30pp – includes Prosecco reception, introduction to wine tasting, taster of 6 wines.
Spaces Limited So Booking Essential. Email firstname.lastname@example.org book.
“A Wine Goose Chase”
Interactive Wine Tasting /Theatrical Performance written and performed by Susan Boyle
Date: Friday October 25th. Venue: St Peter’s
“Susan Boyle loves wine. What’s more she knows what she’s drinking and talking about. She’s got 2,000 years of Irish wine history to back her up! So, sit back, let her pour you a glass while she takes you on a trip with the tenacious Irish people who transformed the wine world and didn’t let coming from a grape-free land stop them
This hour-long one woman theatrical performance fuses interactive wine tasting with storytelling in a warm intimate setting. Audience members will have the opportunity to put their senses to use and hopefully leave with a new insight to a drink that has been part of Ireland’s history for much longer than we might think.”
Susan has had huge success touring her show both at home and abroad and we are delighted she’ll be bringing her show to St Peter’s. Bookings at email@example.com.
