    Bank Holiday Sunday 5th Feb 2023 – Doors 10pm


    Our usual long wait for the next Bank Holiday into the new year has been rapidly shortened this year with the announcement of the new Bank Holiday Sunday, On Sun Feb 5th. This one is going to be fairly mental, with it being the first payday weekend of the year, and end of the pointless Dry January! 🙂

    Get your tickets early for this one, it has SOLD OUT written all over it!!

    As St Brigid’s Day traditionally celebrates the creativity of women, and we are delighted to hand over the DJ reigns to a killer line-up of Ireland Finest Female Dj Talent. Headliner on the night is LEGEND of the Irish club scene Aoife Nic Canna, playing house BANGERS all night long. Also on the bill as always is Brazilian Beaut and Bukkake Resident Mao Monteiro. Newcomer to us for Bukkake is the outragously talented Sleepless Beauty. Completing the bill is Scene Stalwart DJ Ruth maning the decks in the Pop Lounge. She’s the ULTIMATE backroom PopBitch 🙂

    AOIFE NIC CANNA

    Aoife Nic Canna has been a leading force in the Irish dance music scene since its initial emergence in the early 1990s and she continues to open up new paths for the scene with a range of club nights and DJ projects.

    Named the first lady of Irish house music by Hot Press magazine, Aoife has had a number of residencies in the city over the past 23 years, including at U2’s The Kitchen, the Rock Garden, No 4 Dame Lane, and a legendary (and infamous!) eight-year stint at Ri-Ra. Her current DJ residencies are at Ukiyo Bar and The Liquor Rooms in Dublin and at The Blind Pig in Limerick. The Irish Times has included Aoife in their Top 10 Irish DJs and Broadcasters.

    Aoife had played a huge range of clubs and festivals internationally. She performed a series of gigs at Dry Bar in Manchester’s legendary Hacienda Club, and she has been a headliner in Sheffield, in Brighton, at the Cosmopolis Festival in Lisbon, at the Fame Festival in France, and at the Knockan Stockan Festival. She is also part of the hugely popular Radio Shack crew at the Body and Soul Festival and at Electric Picnic. An original member of Dublin’s Horny Organ Tribe, she co hosted a HOT reunion event, “Hot as Phuck”, at The Grand Social in June 2013.

    FAVOURITE WORST NIGHTMARE

    Ireland’s no. 1 Arctic Monkeys Tribute Band

    Sat 18th Feb 2023

    — — — — —

    Favourite Worst Nightmare are an Arctic Monkeys tribute band playing songs from all of their seven studio albums & more. Consisting of the exact same line-up, their sound and presence on stage mimics that of the Arctic Monkeys.

    Demand for this innovative band has increased over the years due to the success of their seven studio albums. Favourite Worst Nightmare can fulfil that demand by making their audiences feel like they are back in Sheffield when the boys played in The Grapes pub back in 2003 or at Glastonbury on that special night in 2013.

    Favourite Worst Nightmare are beginning to make a name for themselves and with a set of over 40 songs to choose from, they are becoming one of the hottest tribute bands out there.

    MARK GREENE & SARAH LENNOX

    Opium Live | Fri 24th Feb 2023 | Doors 11pm | 21+


    COYU is one of the most referenced and respected personalities on the techno scene. Fifteen years of an unstoppable DJ career behind the mixer speaks for him. No less appreciated since he founded his cat empire in 2008, Suara, he’s been known to be the inspiration for many because of what he’s achieved, directing a brand that shows no signs of slowing down. What started off as a record label (until this day it’s still one of the most important labels for techno and underground club sounds, as you will be able to see reflected on main charts) is now a symbol for cat and dance music lovers. Coyu directs with great precision a brand that because of such a demand is also a brand of clothes (Suara Store, with a physical store in Barcelona) and a non-lucrative organization that loves and helps street cats (Suara Foundation).
