The Back Page

Less gastro, more astro...


On Nov 7th, The Back Page arrives in Phibsborough.... 

(Pre-season training, or, the soft opening is this Saturday Oct 25th from 4pm.)

In classic Bodytonic fashion, what was initially earmarked to be a sports talk festival in Croke Park for 3,000 people, is now going be a pub in Phibsborough for 300. Make sense? Of course not...

The pub formerly known as The Red Windmill, will now be known as The Back Page. It’s located on 199 Phibsborough Rd, Phibsborough, Dublin 7. Between Doyle’s Corner & Broadstone. We're on google maps here


The Back Page will encompass many things, including Games, Sports, Pizzas & Salads, Craft Beer & Cocktails, Comedy, Music and much more. There'll definitely be a focus on the games & sports side of things. We'll have the full lowdown in a weeks time in the lead up to the official season kick off. 


Pre-season training starts this Saturday, and we'll be open every day from then until official season kick off on November 7th. Doors are 4pm, and coverage of El Classico begins in the back bar from 5pm, Comedy in the front bar. Music will start after.

Opening times 


If you'd like to come down, for a free drink on us, just follow this link, and send us a message to say hello!

If you've any games or sports memorabilia you think you could donate, that'll also garner you a free drink. We'll have a night specially dedicated to it next week on Oct 31st . 

Hopefully see some of you Saturday.
