Stay In Touch
In late 2015 brother and sister Daniel and Grace opened Bang Bang, named after the famous Dublin street character whose real name was Thomas Dudley.
Both had seen small independent stores whilst living in Australia and New York, and thought, “we can do that”.
We knew we wanted to have an off street location where people could relax and bring their kids and dogs, we knew we wanted to have vintage clothes to browse through, and we knew we wanted to have tasty food and top coffee. But we also wanted it to be different, it had to be fun and relaxed, and it had to have good tunes and feel like a nice place to be.
There was one thing that was more important than all. We had seen most stores, large and small, stock products from all over the world, products that could be found locally, and whilst globalisation has it benefits, we don’t believe shipping goods from one side of the world to the other is one of them. We wanted the products we put on our shelves to be the best products from as local as possible.
We wanted to concentrate on localisation over globalisation.
We source as many of our products from as local as possible – we think its both good for the planet and it’s good to support the little people in a time of ever growing inequality…
Some fantastic products we stock
Delicious bars of Skelligs chocolate handmade in Kerry.
Dublin honey from beekeeper Keith, his hives are in the Strawberry Beds.
We stock Irish products wherever possible but do have a small range of goods from both Spain and Italy which are not made here (olive oils, pasta, beans etc)…
Coffee & Deli
We serve a range of sandwiches using sourdough breads from Arun Bakery in Oxmantown Lane. We also serve daily salads and soup, organic porridge and homemade granola. Cakes, muffins and other treats.
Our by now almost legendary, Brunch Burger is served every day; open until close. Stop by and eat one, we’ll say no more.
For vegetarians and vegans we have plenty of options apart from salad and soup. We make our own vegan burgers each morning and they’re absolutely delish, and we have a vegan wrap too and plenty of vegan friendly treats.
We use Silverskin coffee which is roasted in Dublin by our friend Brian.
