Since opening its doors this year The Commercial Bar on Catherine Street has been a welcome and successful addition to the city centre pub scene, revitalising the upper end of Catherine Street and adding more choice for punters within a block of Tom Collins and the newly extended Flannery’s Bar.
The Record Room is the newly opened intimate basement venue down the stairs from The Commercial which has given the bar an opportunity to offer an alternative music option. Since launching, The Record Room has hosted some of the cities revered vinyl selectors, Peter Curtin. Rhythm’n’Booze Crew and Tom Prendergast to name a few.
The Rhythm’n’Booze Crew had an “immense” night over the St. Patrick’s weekend and are set to return to the venue this Sunday April 1.
Rhythm’n’Booze brings 50s’ and 60s’ r’n’b, soul, ska, reggae and rocksteady to The Record Room all played on original format 45 vinyls. And more importantly than that, DJs Andrew Flynn, Bill Kealy and Dave Barry know how to get their dancefloor scorching hot.
Rhythm’n’Booze play timeless dirty blues and soul and this night comes highly recommended.
Sunday April 1 with DJs Bill Kealy, Andy Flynn and Dave Barry. Free entry.
Saturday March 31, The Record Room welcomes HUSH (Jessie B Good and S. Clavas) spinning disco and house.
