  • The head honcho of Running Back records and one of the finest DJ's around, Gerd Janson, is gonna make the whole place bounce this Saturday at Pogo. A Panorama Bar resident, he's teaming up on the night with our very own Barry Redsetta on the night. We'll see you there.

  • Dublin composer, singer & producer hosting the re-launch of her fantastic album 'Crossings' (Songs for Voice & Double Bass), which has been a huge success. Sue herself composed the lyrics and sings vocals on the record. She will be joined on the night by Dan Bodwell on double bass.

  • In the space of two albums - 2012's thrilling "Big Inner" and this year's magnificent follow-up "Fresh Blood" - the man from Richmond, Virginia has cast many spells. White brings his current European tour to a close with a visit to Dublin for an evening of conversation and solo performance.

    Doors open at 6pm, the event starts at 6.30pm 

  • Its a YES from us. We have Prosumer & Shed from Panorama Bar fighting the good fight for Ireland's Yes Equality campaign this Friday night. As well as the top notch tunes, we'll also have Modeselektor's VJ PFADFINDERAI on the visuals. 

  • Colin Stetson and Sara Neufeld have been around the world as part of Arcade Fire and Bon Iver. Now they're going it on their own as a saxophone and violin duo. Expect to see something you've never witnessed before on Apr 11th.

  • Even by the standards of alt-rap eccentrics, Antwon’s pretty damn protean. His work explores the extreme ends of rap and his own personality, with the lyrics going from hardcore to heartache in the one track. Coming from a punk background, and working with Lil Ugly Mane , Antwon is one of the most interesting rappers out at the moment.

    See him play on Apr 1st

  • The legend that is DJ Funk, the man behind party anthems including “Knock Knock”, “Work That Body”, “Fuk-U-Later”, “Pump It” and “Run & Work It' is touching down in Dublin to get the ghetto house goin' on the Northside. Saturday 7th March at POGO

  • The time has come! Blawan is coming back to Dublin on Friday March 20th for a go at MUD. Last time he was in our gaff was under the Karenn name and It's been far too long since we got a dose of his industrial South Yorkshire techno.

    Book me

    Minimum 4 people

     

  • The finest of cocktails are available to your tastebuds in our cocktail bar every day from 4pm. 

    Have a look at our cocktail menu on our blog to see exactly whats on offer, with our specials changing nightly. We also have our Rum Bar on Fridays and Saturdays with Rory and Daniel. Mojitos, Caiparinhas and terrible dancing are their speciality.

    Our Bodytonic Members are being spoilt this months with 'Relax the Cacks', our Brewtonic summer ale on offer to you for just €4. We're too good to you!
