Dome Bar and Cinema

If dining alfresco, beneath the glimmering fairy lights in a vibrant outdoor space sounds like a dream, then Dome Bar and Cinema is a dream come true. Looking for something a bit more intimate? Pop inside to their colourful bar for the perfect mix of vintage elegance and romance, before catching a film on the big screen. Tapas are the crowd-favourite here, but don’t forget their pizzas – enjoy one in the bar, dining room, or even in the comfort of your cinema chair during intermission!
