In the heart of the West End, Waxy O'Connors is like no other bar and restaurant you've ever visited. The extraordinary interior has some amazing features including cathedral like timber carvings, stained glass windows, beautifully tiled floors and the trunk and branches of a giant preserved beech tree. Within this are 3 bars and 6 different levels linked together by a warren of staircases and passages. Waxys stage regular live music and promotions, and show all the top sporting events on a big screen.
