In 2013, 3FE moved out of their original location on Abbey St to focus on roasting. Head barista Tom Stafford stayed behind and opened Vice Coffee Inc in the iconic club Twisted Pepper (now Wigwam).
Shiny disco balls and massive sound system aside, you could easily forget you are in one of Dublin’s most popular nightclubs. By day, Wigwam plays host to a range of businesses, including Vice Coffee Inc, and Boxcutter Barbershop. By night, the well stocked rum bar hosts a range of events and features regular slots from international DJ’s.
For sunny days there’s a spacious outdoor rooftop and seating on Abbey street. Otherwise, grab a seat in the many booths around the disco dance floor. The Vice staff take great pride in detailing the many options available and there’s a long bar to sit at if you want to quiz them about coffee.
Look out for guest roasters like Square Mile (UK), Round Hill (UK), and Koppi (Sweden) as well as Ireland’s Full Circle or UpSide Coffee. Waterloo, from Cardiff, provide the teas.
Expect innovative coffee cocktails, toasties, top quality doughnuts from Dublin Doughnut Co. and a range of daily pastries.
Irish coffees are the house speciality – try the award winning ‘Fancy Frankie’, made with Teeling’s Small Batch whiskey, homemade brown sugar & agave syrup, and topped with orange blossom cream. Other favourites like the Malted Hot Choc, made with crushed Maltesers and steamed milk are firm favourites amongst Dublin’s Hot Chocolate connoisseurs!
