A popular venue for both Irish and international bands, the Button Factory also features a great bar, and its glass facade makes the venue an ideal place for a relaxing drink. Very popular with students, the center features club nights most evenings, and also regularly plays host to Saturday afternoon gigs, showcasing emerging new Irish talent.
This well-preserved Victorian pub is an unassuming hive of entertainment in the city center. The downstairs bar is a fine example of a traditional Dublin pub; small, smoky and with a healthy mix of youngsters and die-hard regulars. Upstairs is home to a small venue with a program of comedy, theater and music. A poster on the outside of the pub will tell you what's on.
At a first glance, the black exterior of this place may not look appealing. But as you step inside, you are sure to be surprised with what this popular venue has on offer. The Grand Social has four eclectic venues. There is The Parlour where one can quench your thirst with beer or The Ballroom that is pulsating with DJ nights and themed events. The breezy Garden hosts regular live gigs while the upstairs Loft allures visitors with its circus-themed decor and its wonderful line-up of burlesque acts, fashion shows, reading sessions and film screenings. Saturday is the most awaited as The Grand Social transforms into a weekly flea market selling fashionable clothes, furniture, accessories, books and more. All in all, there's never a dull moment at The Grand Social.
