THE Clare Bar

For those who want to celebrate without all the fuss, The Clare bar is the way to go. Facing Broadway in a rennovated art-deco pub, feel free to drop in, or if you and your mates tend to run in packs, set up a bar tab to guarantee a spot. We'll have screens to watch the race, and a 50% flash prosecco sale in the hour leading up so you can shout the team and place your last bets with confidence. And for a little extra fun, we've got Murray's Craft Brewing Co hosting a beer tasting in our Bottle Shop.
