"The PoD" Clubs Tip by tvdm

Clubs, Dublin: 61 reviews and 33 photos


The PoD (Place of Dance) is still going strong after years of being one of Dub's most fav joints! It has just undergone an extensive reconstruction, so it might be a little while before it's fully functional again. So far, however, it's going the right way as per usual.

The PoD is one for the beautiful people. An excellent club with an excellent interior. (Check out the gents). Friday nights it's H.A.M. which claims a 'Totally queer door policy', and it's being enforced quite strictly. H.A.M. is one of the best nights in Dublin at the moment.
Saturday has recently also turned gay but the music is a bit more poppy than the Friday trance and the atmosphere is a tad friendlier. Sunday nights it's Loose, which takes place in both the PoD and The Chocolate Bar (where they serve an excellent Bailey's Heaven) and is free in before 9pm. The PoD is open all week so check it out if you're in Dublin.

Be aware that the adjacent Chocolate Bar has happy nights on Monday and Tuesday eve with half-priced cocktails and pints!

Dress Code: Beautiful people need a good outfit. Otherwise forget it, because the bouncers will send you back to the dressing room!

Directions: From St Stephen's Green, walk into Harcourt Street and after a 5min walk it's on your left-hand side.
