Shiver me timbers! Rathmines newest tavern, The Bowery, is about to drop anchor, and promises enough live music and craft rum to satisfy even the saltiest of seadogs.
The Bowery, formerly known as Toast, will be lowering the gangplank this October bank holiday weekend to welcome landlubbers and buccaneers alike. Two nights of live music will see acts such as Stomptown Brass, The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow and a very special guest courtesy of local heroes Abner Brown’s, take to the stage while revellers sample the extensive rum list, including The Bowery’s very own craft rum, as well as a wide selection of rum based signature cocktails. Resident DJs, including Le Galaxie’s Michael Pope and Today FM’s Kelly-Anne Byrne, will have you shaking your (pirates) booty late into the night.
The impressive and authentic décor is not to be ignored. The nautical theme is carried throughout the premises, with the port holes lining the bar coming from Irish Naval auxiliary ship L.E. Setanta, which was decommissioned in 1980. Most ships have just one captain, but The Bowery boasts two: Tom Bohan, owner of the well-known Oarsman in Ringsend since 2000, and Brian Costelloe, another lifetime publican who’s best known for the world famous Costello’s Tavern in Limerick City.
There’s no need to walk the plank to Davy Jones Locker if you fancy a hearty drop of rum this month…just grab a cab to The Bowery instead. Savvy?
