Massimo is a bar…
Massimo bar was named after a hamster and opened its doors in 2001. Unfortunately the hamster is no longer with us but the bar is bigger and brighter than ever. Never one to follow the traditional concept of what a Galway pub should be, a renovation in 2016 continued to see contemporary design compliment what the regulars love about the place.
Head chef Andrew O’Halloran’s culinary career has taken him to many far-flung parts of the world, including southern Africa where he oversaw the opening of two gastropubs and a tapas restaurant. This kaleidoscope of influence can be tasted in every bite.
Sports are shown on the eight large TV,s with burgers and tacos to keep you fuelled until the full-time whistle. The gem of a beer garden is a calm retreat if you want to take a break from the madding crowd.
By night, Massimo comes alive,refusing to let The West End party finish with bars that serve late at the weekend, live music on Sundays and the unmissable entertainment on the First Friday of every month.
Ken’s carefully curated whiskey and gin collections are about quality rather than quantity and the wine list is worth the visit to the bar alone.
