Route 36 is said to have attracted thousands of people from far and wide with those who have successfully found the bar claiming that the best way to find it is by asking a cab driver.

Stylist reported in 2019: "The best spot to find a cabbie in the know is outside one of the city’s party hostels — Loki or Wild Rover are good bets — but it seems that most drivers in the city centre will have an idea."

Prices include a €5 (£4.30) entry fee with a gram of cocaine costing around €15 (£13).
