Recently visited The Green Door by The Privé Group for their soft launch with some friends. What’s so unique about this place? Is it yet another over-hyped bar / chill-out place in Dempsey?
The Green Door becomes a synergistic space where you can enjoy a garden atmosphere no matter where you choose to hang out. Whether it be at the vibrant indoor bar or the alfresco area surrounded by sumptuous foliage, the ambiance always evokes a sense of being close to everything and yet away from it all.
My first impression upon stepping in: garden-ish, quirky & kinda… magical.
It’s the kind of place where you want to chill out at on a Friday night with your close friends. The decor looks befitting enough to fit right into a Harry Potter film. Here’s some of the details.
Along with the free-flow sliders and alcohol for the launch, we ordered a Champagne – Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut N.V ($155), Pan-Seared Pork Belly Mini Burger Trio ($13) and Truffle Potato & Mushroom Omelette Wedges (V) ($12).

To be honest, I give the food an 8/10.
The champagne was good. The mini burgers were really good. The seared pork belly melted in my mouth within seconds. The portion was quite generous for the amount we paid.
We tried some other finger food and they were all of a decent standard. The service staff were polite and responded to our requests within a reasonable time frame despite the large crowd.
Did you know that their signature cocktails uses fruits and herbs freshly grown from their garden? One of their unique plus points.
To me, I hardly think pubs can differentiate themselves by saying “I have the best concoction”, or “I have the best food” (cause people usually don’t go to pubs to eat).
It’s the decor, the music, the atmosphere and the mood which makes someone want to go back again and again, because they feel at ease there. I think The Green Door has the potential to be such a pub!
If you’re bored of your usual pub in the quay area, drop by and give The Green Door a try. Once you walk in through that door, you might never want to walk out again.
Happy hour specials from 5-8pm daily. Ask their friendly bartenders for the cocktail of the week. Like their Facebook page here for updates on promotions.
