Every city has a pub like this with a mix of locals, traders and the workforce from City hall and the various surrounding offices, it houses a full Rising Sons Beer Bar, some of the cities cosiest snugs and a great place to catch a gig! We also have a big screen to display the best the sporting calendar has to offer. The Poor Relation is also a perfect place for an afternoon lunch with our delicious toasties and soup combos. Try out our new  classic cocktail menu which offers something for everybody, we also serve iced cocktails for those sunny spring and summer months! We also serve delicious coffees in many different styles if you need an afternoon refresh and refuel.

We’ve got live music at least 3 times per week with our resident bands. There’s also heated outdoor seating along Parnell Place so you can get a real sense of the character of the city!
