The proposed location is the top floor of a multi-storey car park on Trinity Street behind popular Dame Street into.
Dublin City Council approved plans to alter the upper levels of the car park in other to also provide for a gallery and exhibition area on the building’s fifth floor.
Council planners have however indicated that it would not allow a proposed cocktail bar to operate separately.
The project is the brainchild of chef, Niall Davidson, whose company, Table 21 restaurants secured city permission for a change of use of the top floors of the multi-storey car park for a maximum period of three years.
