A new Irish bar and restaurant has quietly opened on the Granville Strip.

The GPO Bar + Kitchen replaced Donnellan’s Chipper – a short-lived Irish fast-food concept which formerly operated at 1224 Granville Street.

The ‘GPO’ in the name stands for the General Post Office, which was a Dublin landmark associated with the uprising that led to the Irish Independence.

The new spot has most of the same owners as Donnellan’s Chipper but now, the concept has been rebranded from a chipper to a bar.
